The RP40 multiCLASS access control reader from HID Corp. combines Prox 125 kHz proximity and iCLASS 13.56 MHz contactless smart card and reader technologies into a single reader. The multiCLASS multi-technology card reader is designed for customers who are upgrading their current card system from HID Prox to HID iCLASS credentials or cards. With multiCLASS, the customer can switch to contactless smart cards over time while incorporating the use of multiple card technologies within a single building or across multiple facilities. Unlike contactless smart card serial number readers, security is enhanced through mutual authentication and data encryption. The multiCLASS reader is capable of reading the DESFire, FIPS 201, ISO 14443B, ISO 14443A (MIFARE), ISO 15693 and FeliCa CSNs, in addition to full read/write on iCLASS and all 125 kHz low frequency formats.HID Corp.
