Long-range reader IS self-contained
November 1, 2005
A self-contained, long-range smart card reader that meets international regulatory standards, the R90 is now available as part of the HID Corp.â€™s iCLASS 13.56 MHz contactless smart card reader family. A single iCLASS card can provide parking lot, building, vending machine, point of service, records and logical access. It can read range distances up to 18 inches or 45 centimeters with auto-tuning, enabling more consistent read ranges and a parking hold function that allows connection to a loop detector to ensure accurate detection of vehicles in parking lanes. Featuring a tamper switch, all electronics are packaged in a rugged, indoor/outdoor, easy-to-install housing that mounts on metal with minimal read range impact. Two R90s can operate simultaneously at 1m apart for Hi-Lo truck and car installations. Audio indicators include tone sequences to signify access granted, access denied, power up and diagnostics, while a multicolor LED flashes from red to green with a beeper sound when a valid card is presented.
