|HID Global announced the expansion of its multiCLASS™ transition reader product line|
HID's multiCLASS family of card readers are designed for customers upgrading their current card system from the most popular proximity technologies to iCLASS credentials. With the multiCLASS RP40, RPK40 and RP15 readers, existing EM4102 proximity customers now have the ability to seamlessly transition to smart cards over time while incorporating the use of multiple card technologies within a single building or across multiple facilities.
"HID's commitment to providing customers with seamless migration options is clearly represented with the launch of the new EM4102 multiCLASS transition readers," said Marc Butler, product manager, HID Global. "This technology is particularly important in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe where EM4102 proximity solutions have a large installed base. Working closely with our customers has resulted in the development of new multiCLASS readers with EM4102 support to help them with small to large-scale migration projects."
In addition to EM4102 proximity migration capability, HID's multiCLASS family of transition readers offer seamless low frequency migration from 125 kHz HID, Indala or AWID Proximity to any of the following smart card technologies:
- 13.56 MHz iCLASS, DESFire®
- ISO 15693 CSN (MyD, ICODE, Tag-it)
- ISO 14443A, CSN (MIFARE®)
- US Government PIV
