Card reader

Javelin family of readers, from AMAG Technology, can operate as standard readers with versions of Symmetry Security Management V6.x or as fully functional, intelligent alarm keypads when used with Symmetry Homeland V7 with the Symmetry Intrusion Management module and supported Symmetry M2150 multiNODE controllers. The Javelin 884-KP reads NXP Mifare and Mifare DESFire smart cards, in addition to Personal Identity Verification (PIV), Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) and First Responder Authentication Card (FRAC) cards. The Javelin 880-KP reads 125kHz HID Proximity credentials. Other models will be released over time. The Javelin LCD graphical display verifies card acceptance or rejection, and can prompt for a user’s PIN to verify command functions. Access control and intrusion messaging such as PIN prompts, door information and intrusion area alarm status is displayed using configurable text, icons and graphical images. The keypad and reader are backlit for ease of use and provide the option to reduce lighting levels when the reader is not in use. An onboard Wiegand Interface allows a separate external reader to be connected to support additional card technologies such as barcode, magnetic strip or HID iCLASS.
