The SIO Enabled UHF/iCLASS Smart Card, provides a secure Ultra High Frequency (UHF) long range parking and gate control solution that can be used in conjunction with other existing technologies. The UHF card can be read from distances of up to five meters for long range identification. This dual-technology smart card also combines UHF technology with iCLASS and iCLASS SE technologies, offering a single card solution for both door and gate access. Part of the iCLASS SE platform, the SIO Enabled UHF/ iCLASS Smart Card is the most secure UHF credential available. In UHF mode, the associated reader issues a password to obtain access to protected areas of the card's memory for safe storage of confidential or business-sensitive data. In addition to this security measure, the dual technology smart card leverages HID Global's Secure Identity Object (SIO) data model that adds an additional layer of encryption and authentication for advanced security and performance. The dual technology smart card is also cost effective due to its underlying passive UHF and high frequency (HF) technologies,. The card does not contain a battery since it is powered by the reader. This eliminates the need for battery maintenance. The SIO Enabled UHF/iCLASS solution offers secure contactless read/write smart card technology along with the ability to add anti-counterfeiting features. These features include custom artwork or photo identification imprinted directly on the card. This durable dual-technology smart card meets strict ISO standards for thickness and can be used with high definition printers. It is strong, flexible and resistant to cracking and breaking.
