Using 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology, the bioCLASS products provide users with new options for supporting multi-authentication of identity. Combine a contactless card presentation with a fingerprint biometric. Or, use a personal identification number (PIN) number along with a contactless card presentation.
- The iCLASS RWKL550 read/write contactless smart card reader with keypad and LCD display
- The bioCLASS RWKLB575 read/write contactless smart card reader with keypad, LCD display, and fingerprint biometric verification
- The bioCLASS BIO500 fingerprint biometric verification module addition that can be used to field upgrade existing keypad readers with LCD display (RWKL550)
The bioCLASS products provide three levels of fingerprint verification. During the enrollment process, the RWKLB575 is connected to a PC via a USB port. The software will guide the user to place a finger on the sensor. The fingerprint template is collected at the unit and immediately transferred to the card. During this enrollment process, the fingerprint template is stored ONLY on the card; it is never transmitted to an external host. During verification at the door, the LCD graphical display assists the user with instructions about finger placement on the biometric sensor.
Users can choose the level of security to meets their needs: card and PIN; card and fingerprint; card, PIN, and fingerprint.
The products’ unique modular design provides a high level of flexibility, including costeffective field upgrade from keypad with LCD display (RWKL550) to a biometric solution without downtime.
LCD display provides feedback on user finger placement and defines custom menu keys.
Fingerprint templates are stored on the iCLASS card and not in the reader, resulting in increased security, faster throughput, easier system management, lower costs for the biometric reader and reduced concerns over individual privacy.
