Multi technology readers, as the name implies are the readers that work with various technologies available or we can say reader that is compatible with defined unlimited technologies. These readers are sometimes called as hybrid readers or multi frequency readers, and have gained global importance in a very short duration owing to the advancement in technology from use of single frequency cards to multiple frequency cards.
In general standard access control systems, the available standard readers work with one technology like high frequency readers with 13.56MHz cards while as Low frequency cards with 125 KHz cards, hence one technology for one card. In case of multi technology hybrid readers, the compatible cards can be of any technology from 125 KHz to 13.56MHz or of any industry standard from Nundprox (125 KHz, 13.56 MHz, 125KHZ + 13.56MHZ) to Mifare 13.56MHz. & different variants. The multi-technology card readers are designed to support the migrations as the part of digitisation and programs to latest technologies available for the projects. It supports ISO 15693, ISO 14443A, ISO 14443B standards.
Integrated readers are designed to work in any environmental conditions hence equipped with robust housings suitable for low to high risk applications with an effective index ratings viz.a.viz. Impact resistance IK10 to ingress protection IP66 for indoor & outdoor application. The generic defacto protocol Wiegand is basic protocol for communication how over any other communication protocol like OSDP can be incorporated.
Integrated card readers using multiple technologies are the perfect & clear choice for any sort of business establishments looking for digitalisation of security setup to upgrade the existing systems using the various card technologies.
The Multi frequency technology reader helps in integrating multiple functions in a single small form factor package, and all is done using a single PCB for development of systems hence multi frequency reader support available in single package thereby reducing cost & size of the readers.
