With the recent notification by HID® Global Corp. to its customers, that it would be obsolescing its Wiegand card and reader line as of January 31, 2013 (except for some iCLASS®/Wiegand transition cards, which will be offered through March 31, 2013), Secura Key, Chatsworth Calif., made the announcement that it has been and continues to be a reliable and trusted manufacturing resource for many types of access control cards. Secura Key stated that it is the only resource for Wiegand Cards to the industry.

Secura Key also manufactures multi-technology Wiegand cards, such as Wiegand + Contactless, for customers who would like to transition to a newer card technology. Multi-technology Transition Cards allow the end-user to keep using their system, while replacing the Wiegand swipe readers at their own pace. Secura Key’s e*Tag® readers output SIA-standard Wiegand data, and can easily replace existing Wiegand Swipe readers, using the existing field wiring.

Secura Key manufactures Wiegand + MIFARE, and Wiegand + DESFire dual-technology cards, as well as special MIFARE and DESFire compatible e*Tag® readers. Secura Key can manufacture Wiegand cards in virtually any format, if the technical specification for the format is provided.

“As more advanced technologies gain in market share, the demand for Wiegand products has declined,” commented HID Global in a statement to SDM, regarding its notification to customers about the matter.
