The HID iCLASS RW series of Readers/Writers encompass a range of 4 13.56 MHz contactless card readers and writers. Up to 32kbit of data can be stored on an iCLASS card, and with the RW series you are free to explore the true levels of functionality this can afford you. Attendance, logging, monetary applications, biometric ID and alarm system control all easy with the HID RW series, as data can be both read and written using these versatile products.
All HID iCLASS read/writers in the RW series connect via industry-standard Wiegand, as well as offering a choice of USB, UART, RS232 or RS485 connectivity to allow you to interface your application easily.
With HID iCLASS support, the RW series is compatible with ISO 14443A, ISO 14443B and ISO 15693 cards. This means that both MIFARE and DESFire cards are supported, among others. Security is of paramount importance, and all RF data sent between the reader and the card is securely encrypted.
The four models in this series differ mainly in their size and style rather than their capabilities. The RW100 and RW150 are designed for mullion installations, the RW300 for installation in an EU/Asian Back Box mount and the RW400 for use in a standard US wall switch.
The entire series of HID iCLASS RW reader/writers are IP55 certified and have a lifetime warranty against material defects and workmanship.
