AMAG Technology announced new Javelin card readers available with and without keypads. The Javelin S874 Smartcard versions support contactless smart cards including DESFire EV1 and MIFARE Plus, and work with government PIV and TWIC cards. Simultaneously, the S870 125kHz proximity card variants have been released. Available with and without keypads, they offer similar features and are compatible with all HID and AMAG 125KHz proximity cards. Power consumption for the Javelin is automatically reduced through a ‘sleep’ mode, which reduces LED and keypad backlight brightness after a period of inactivity.
