125-kHz Proximity Technology

Pyramid Series readers generate an electromagnetic field tuned to 125 kHz, an internationally recognized radio frequency for low power data communications. When a credential enters this field, the credential’s internal RFIC is activated. The RFIC then transmits its unique data back to the reader as an encoded modulated signal. The encoding of this signal is comprised of a data algorithm that uses a byte parity error-detection scheme, providing extremely fast, accurate, and secure transmissions.

 

13.56-MHz Contactless Smartcard Technology

Delta readers are able to read the sector (access control) data and/or card serial number from all ISO 14443 Type A & B compliant credentials. Delta credentials meet the ISO standard and are programmed at Farpointe with a Delta-compatible secure key. During Delta’s validation process, the credential’s secure key is challenged by the reader. If the secure keys match, the reader will read the card’s sector data. If the secure keys don’t match, the reader will only read the credential’s CSN.

 

433-MHz Long Range Technology

Each Transmitter integrates the convenience of long-range identification with traditional proximity access control. For example, if a site requires employees to access a parking structure (gate/barrier) and a door (building entrance), the Ranger solution will enable each user to access both the long-range and proximity applications with a single Ranger Transmitter. For the parking structure, the user presses the Transmitter button from the convenience of their vehicle (without lowering the window) and when at the door, they can simply present the Transmitter to the building’s proximity reader. Since identical data is transmitted upon button press or presentation, each user need only be enrolled once in the access control system.
