HID Global's updated SmartID family

May 2009 Access Control & Identity Management

SmartID, SmartTRANS and SmartTOUCH are HID Global’s access control readers, suitable for single technology 13,56 MHz, dual technology 13,56 MHz and 125 kHz and biometric fingerprint. The three components of a SmartID reader are hardware, application and format configuration. It is the customisable applications and configurations that offer dynamic adaptation of the reader hardware to the installation site.

Focusing on ISO 14443 technologies, the SmartID family of readers is compatible with HID MIFARE or custom MIFARE, DESFire and PIV credentials and applications. The open architecture, flexible and secure contactless smart cards readers provides customers with the most configurable ISO 14443 product line.

The applications available within the SmartID product line are:

SmartID S10, SK10, SW100 and SWK100 readers

SmartID readers provide a broad range of card compatibility in the industry and can be configured as a specific solution for each project. They are ideal for customers that require a customisable reader for new or existing installations.

* Open Architecture Design – ISO 14443A MIFARE/DESFire Contactless smartcard, compatible for broad card interoperability.

* HID MIFARE – Supports secure MIFARE applications including HID Corporate 1000 card formats.

* Field upgradeable – Use cards or a serial connection to upgrade reader firmware and/or field configuration.

The readers are available with or without keypad, adding an extra layer of protection for higher security installations. Rugged, weatherised polycarbonate enclosure, designed to withstand harsh environments.

SmartTRANS SP10 and SPK10 readers

SmartTRANS ISO 14443 and 125 kHz readers are ideal for customers migrating from 125 kHz technology to 13,56 MHz ISO 14443, SmartTRANS readers offer a range of card compatibility in the industry and can be configured as a specific solution for each project.

SmartTOUCH SB10 and SBK10 readers

SmartTOUCH is a flexible, secure and stylish contactless smartcard reader ideal for customers that require a customisable reader for new or existing installations.

* Open architecture design – ISO 14443A MIFARE/DESFire contactless smartcard, compatible for broad card interoperability.

* Ideal for high security applications – Offers higher assurance of valid transactions making it the ideal solution for securing rooms, payment applications and electronic time and attendance.

It is available with or without PIN pad, adding an extra layer of protection for higher security installations. Rugged, weatherised polycarbonate enclosure, designed to withstand harsh environments.

Easy and cost-effective upgrades

SmartID readers allow the customer to upgrade readers with enhancements to the existing reader application or complete application migration to different card technologies.

Without taking the reader off the wall, configurations that add a card application (eg, from MIFARE to DUAL MIFARE) after a new card population is introduced to a multifacility company or applications/configurations that upgrade sites to a higher security technology can be achieved with little cost and effort. This also allows for tailored applications to be written and downloaded to the reader when future card populations shift in unexpected directions. As long as the hardware can handle the communication with the card, the application and associated configurations can be downloaded at any point in time.
