The interoperable, ISO 14443A-compliant family of contactless smart card products provides customers a totally flexible platform - from the simplicity and security of HID Format MIFARE readers to completely customizable (keys and format) secure MIFARE and DESFire reader solutions.  The addition to this new, open architecture reader line augments HID's market leading, flexible, open iCLASS® product line, clearly asserting the company's commitment to support 13.56 MHz technologies.  Taken together, the company's offerings comprise the Industry's broadest range of open standard contactless smart card products, available from over 40,000 resellers worldwide.

The flexible, highly secure and stylish contactless smart card keypad reader models now available include the FlexSmart MIFARE HID Format Secure Keypad Reader (Model Number: 6071), FlexSmart MIFARE Custom Keypad Reader (Model Number: 6072) and FlexSmart DESFire Custom Keypad Reader (Model Number: 6073).
