HID Releases The Industry’s First Self-contained Long Range Contactless Smart Card Reader

Product Profile

HID Corporation, the premier manufacturer of contactless access control cards and readers for the security industry, has released the industry’s first, self-contained long range contactless smart card reader that meets multiple international regulatory requirements.  The R90 is ideal for installations incorporating parking and long read range applications with access control and represents an expansion of HID’s iCLASS® 13.56 MHz contactless smart card reader family. 

The R90 combines a longer read range with enhanced security through encryption and mutual authentication standard with HID iCLASS 13.56 MHz contactless smart card products.  International regulatory standards and certifications include CE Mark (Europe), and c-Tick (Australia) and FCC (United States).

With read range distances up to 45 centimetres or 18 inches, the R90 comes complete 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 single, rugged, indoor/outdoor, easy-to-install housing that mounts on metal with minimal read range impact.  In addition, two R90s can operate simultaneously at one metre 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 multicolour LED flashes from red to green with a beeper sound when a valid card is presented to the reader.

The R90 read-only contactless smart card long range reader is based on a 13.56 MHz technology platform that meets the ISO 15693 standard and includes a highly secure, 64-bit diversified key format for mutual authentication.  The R90 Long Range Reader is programmable with a command card, enabling it to be field-configurable and customizable.  The R90 reads HID iCLASS 13.56 MHz contactless smart cards, any ISO 15693 card serial number (CSN) and is compatible with industry standard Wiegand protocol access control panels.  The R90 is mountable indoors or out, includes a factory or field-configurable LED and speaker for the visually and hearing impaired, and to signify status, power up and diagnostics.  The R90 measures 30.48 x 30.48 x 3.18 centimetres (12 x 12 x 1.25 inches) and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The iCLASS contactless smart card readers are available from HID’s network of distributors, OEMs, and system integrators worldwide.
