HID Global unveiled a new access-control reader and credential offerings that provide an options for migrating from legacy solutions to 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technologies. HID readers can be used with single- and combination-technology cards including a dual-high frequency credential.
HID’s expanded offering includes:
- An iCLASS reader for migration from MIFARE Classic to secure 13.56 MHz MIFARE DESFire EV1 and HID iCLASS contactless technology
- New multiCLASS readers for migration from legacy magnetic stripe (magstripe) and 125 kHz proximity card technology to higher-security MHz HID iCLASS contactless technology
- A dual-high frequency credential, which bridges the gap between legacy solutions and secure iCLASS and MIFARE DESFire EV1 contactless technologies, expanding customer options for deploying security, while maximizing the value of their credential investment by enabling multiple applications on a single card
HID will be demonstrating its full line of readers and credentials at Security Essen 2010, October 5-8 in Hall 12, stand #216, at the Essen Trade Fair Ground in Essen, Germany, and at ASIS International 2010, October 12-14 in Booth #601 at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
HID’s iCLASS dual HF reader and multiCLASS non-keypad migration readers are available now, and the iCLASS dual-HF credentials will be available in November from the company’s network of distributors, OEMs and system integrators.
