Qontinuum starts in the market in 1993
with the aim to offer the expertise of its founders in
the design and manufacture of systems and applications
in the physical Access Control and Time
we started the CONACC system design (a
set of new specifications and products defined to be applied
to an Access Control and to a Time
and Attendance as a generic system) that we established
to provide an easy yet powerful way for design systems
and programming, all intended to be used by application
programs developers for 32-bit Windows platforms.
in order to improve support to customers, we created the
first version of our website.
we apply the fS=4
concept for high performance and security to the RFID
tags 'MIFARE', specially for the Spanish Ministry of Defense
as well as (and mainly due to their role in security)
in the war ships series F-100 (Spanish Navy) and F-300
In 2005 we
release the ".NET" component called API-CONACC
as high-level API to develop applications based on our
we started the design of the HYDRA
project (CPUs of the Series 700 that
can support, in some configurations, up to four CPUs of
was completed the development of the components for fS=4
concept for high performance and security for the DEF
Family (RFID tags 'DESFire') and we made the
first deliveries for physical Access Control.
During this year's last quarter we began our international
adventure, reason for which almost all product documentation
will be translated to English as well as we began to work
in the English version of our website.
we completed the Series 700 with the introduction of compact
Terminals intended for Access Control
and for Time and Attendance, being their
main characteristics the Ethernet and the RS-485 native
connections as well as an optional USB or wireless connection.
We also design and develop Qontronic
Modules for industrial control, both for use in Qontinuum
own products and for the OEM market.
At the end of the year we started the Calypso
project for Access Control Terminals based exclusively
on wireless communication (IEEE 802.15.4), which will
introduce significant improvements from the point of view
of competitiveness to increase performance, simplify the
physical installation and reduce the size and cost of
such terminals, but always maintaining compatibility with
the CONACC system.
we invest heavily in the Calypso subsystem to provide
us with the injection molds required for the housings
of the new 2000 Series Terminals for Access Control as
well as for the covers of the new electronics (completely
designed and developed by Qontinuum) for reading and writing
of 'MIFARE' and 'DESFire' RFID cards.
We also initiated the design and development of Access
Control Terminals (3000 Series), the first models of which
will provide more power, less weight and a lower price
than products of the former Series 900.
In keeping with our desire to expand in the international
market, we began prospecting in Mexico with very good
Finally, and of great importance for the future of Qontinuum,
we got approval certificates for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001,
which will facilitate our growth in foreign markets.
Since 1993, more than 2.500 clients accredit us.
Our goal in 2013 and ahead:
