HID Global has announced the launch of the new mullion-mounted reader. The system is ideally suited for upgrading from the MiniProx to iCLASS (R15) or multiCLASSTM (RP15) access control readers.

With 100 per cent mechanical and electrical backward compatibility, the mullion-mounted R15/RP15 iCLASS readers make transitioning from proximity readers, such as HID MiniProx, easier than ever.

Employing the same footprint, power requirements and ease of installation as the MiniProx reader, R15/RP15 mullion-mounted reader customers can easily transition to the enhanced security of iCLASS with a simple installation change.

Unlike 125 kHz readers with limited formats and flexibility or generic 13.56 MHz readers that rely on unencrypted serial number encoding/decoding for security, the mullion-mounted R15/RP15 readers extend the full features and high performance of HID’s award-winning iCLASS family to a new range of mullion-mount applications.

The iCLASS R15 mullion-mounted reader solution is user-friendly, delivering the convenience, affordability and reliability of proximity technology for which HID is known worldwide. With the RP15 multiCLASS reader, customers are able to transition to contactless smart cards over time while incorporating the use of multiple card technologies within a single building or across multiple facilities.

Additionally, customers can transition from disparate proximity technologies to a unified contactless smart card solution from HID, a leading manufacturer in the delivery of identity solutions and access control industry.
