iCLASS® 13.56 MHz contactless smart cards and readers make access control more powerful, more versatile and offer enhanced security through data encryption and mutual authentication between the card and reader. iCLASS readers are user-friendly, delivering the same convenience and reliability of HID’s world-renowned Prox technology, with state-of-the-art features, driven by evolving industry requirements

Upgrading from Prox to iCLASS technology has never been so simple.

All iCLASS readers provide the same wiring connections, low-current consumption and 5 to 16 volt operation as our Prox readers.

Additionally, you can transfer your Prox format and user identification numbers to iCLASS credentials, making the change completely transparent to your access control system.

Key Features  
  • Format Portability - Upgrading is completely transparent since the same Prox format and user identification numbers are brought across to your iCLASS credentials, including HID Corporate 1000 formats. Also, Elite custom key program is available for a higher level of security.
  • Secure - All RF data transmission between the card and reader is encrypted using a secure algorithm. By using industry-standard encryption techniques and advanced key management systems, iCLASS reduces the risk of compromised data or duplicated cards.
  • Interoperability - iCLASS is based on ISO interoperability standards providing compatibility with many popular card technologies (ISO 15693, ISO 14443A and ISO 14443B).
  • Optimal Read Range Performance- An auto-tuning feature automatically adjusts the reader for optimal read range performance on any mounting surface.
