OMNIKEY, one of the world leading
manufacturers of innovative smart card readers, has developed a
practical and affordable PC-linked desktop reader that is specifically
designed to work with a standard HID proximity card.
With over 200 million HID proximity cards in the market, end-users have
been seeking an affordable PC-linked desktop reader. The CardManÃÂÃÂ® 5125,
based on HID’s industry standard access control proximity card
technology, reads the unique card number from any HID proximity card.
Based on a 125 kHz RFID interface that reads the card number from HID
proximity cards, the CardMan 5125 allows organizations to implement new
PC-linked applications without the need to re-badge cardholders.
From a 26-bit format to a Corporate 1000 format and everything in
between, the CardMan 5125 is compatible. The USB connection makes
installation fast while the versatile reader design offers users a
variety of mounting and card presentation options.
Unlike other readers on the market, the CardMan 5125 also offers contact
smart card reading / writing capability in the same desktop device. The
technology design used in the CardMan 5125 meets the requirements of
most IT directors and software application providers. As needs within
the organization change, the addition of contact smart card capability
allows users to increase security and add functionality without
upgrading their desktop readers.
Using existing proximity cards for new applications without the need to
re-badge has never been easier or more affordable. Simply choose a
software application partner and use your existing proximity card for
applications such as log-on to WindowsÃÂÃÂ®, networks, and websites, or for
database enrollment and other similar desktop applications.
