The FlexTag FPTAG is a 0.0178 cm thick Lexan tag with an adhesive back, primarily used to easily upgrade and convert plastic ID badges into Indala proximity credentials with minimum effort. In fact, any non-metallic item can be used, such as a phone or tablet. The FlexTag adheres easily to badges or non-metallic items thanks to its adhesive back, low weight and small dimensions.
The FlexTag FPTAG has been designed to withstand a wide range of environmental conditions and different temperatures, making it a highly versatile and durable product from HID. Furthermore, its battery-less design allows it to perform virtually an infinite number of consistent reads. It has a lifetime warranty.
The FlexTag is compatible with all HID Indala 125 kHz readers. Depending on reader and site conditions, the read range is between 7 cm to an impressive 35 cm. It is easily programmed using Indala ProxSmith Programmer.
A key feature of Indala Proximity technology is FlexSecur - a two-step authentication system to help keep data secure. The data field is encrypted before the card is programmed, meaning the data on the card cannot be read without the correct decryption from the access control system. Readers, tags and cards can be programmed so that each site is unique, making unauthorized attacks using cards from another facility impossible.
Overall, the HID Indala FlexTag FPTAG is a well-developed device from HID which excels in a number of important areas. It particularly works well as an add-on to current cards and devices, instantly adding Indala Prox capabilities to them.
