Idesco Access 8 CM Mifare® sector reader

Product Profile

Idesco’s new Access 8 CM Mifare® sector reader reads application specific data from selected sectors of all Mifare® standard cards.  Multi-application cards can also be used with this reader unit.  The reader accepts any bit lengths making it compatible with almost any system.

The card sectors the reader can access are protected by an additional security key, which is defined separately between the reader and the card.  The application data can only be read with Idesco Access 8 CM reader and with a correct security key.

By using an encoder reader and the encoder software customers can implement their own applications and define security keys also themselves.  Also interface, default sector and timing of the data can be configured by using a configuration card which offers superior flexibility.  The reader is available in many colours and also with hand-made wooden housings.
