The RMK40/RMPK40 readers with keypad are designed to simplify installation for customers upgrading from legacy reader technology to high performance contactless smart cards capabilities while supporting dual-factor identity authentication with use of a personal identification number (PIN). The removable vertical magnetic stripe reader and contactless 125 kHz support make user interaction with the reader familiar, maintaining operational access throughout the facility and reducing user confusion during migration. Designed for flexibility, the vertical magstripe backplate can be mounted on the left or right side of the core contactless wall's switch reader frame. After a site fully migrates from magstripe cards, users can replace the magstripe backplate with a standard backplate for increased security from contactless 13.56 MHz-only compatibility. The reader supports ANSI/ISO 7811 magstripe data conversion or pass-through configuration in combination with HID Prox and some of the most popular 13.56 MHz contactless access control technologies including iCLASS credentials. All multiCLASS magstripe products are supported by a lifetime warranty.
HID Global's new multiCLASS products are now available from HID Global's network of distributors, OEMs, and system integrators worldwide. HID Global will enhance its multiCLASS magstripe reader line with non-keypad wall switch variants and FIPS 201 compliancy in July while offering promotional pricing on keypad products during the months of April, May and June.
