The R90 is an exciting release because it rounds out the iCLASS
reader family offering customers a complete building access control
solution. A single iCLASS card can provide parking lot and building
access, as well as vending, POS, records and logical access, for a
complete multi-application card, said Jack Bubany, senior product
manager for HID’s iCLASS products. “We offer an industry recognized
standard for 13.56 MHz contactless smart card products, combined with
the security and performance that you have grown to expect from HID,
plus the experience to make system upgrades easy to implement.”
The R90 features read range distances up to 18 inches or 45
centimeters 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 meter 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
multicolor 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 12 x 12 x 1.25 inches (30.48 x 30.48 x
3.18 centimeters) and comes with a lifetime warranty.
The iCLASS R90 Long Range Reader will be available in the fourth
quarter of this year from HID’s network of distributors, OEMs, and
system integrators worldwide.
