One for All: Reading Multiple Access Control Badge Types with one RFID/NFC Reader

Hello.  안녕하세요.  Bonjour.  こんにちは.
If you could read those 4 languages, you would be part of the 3% of people who can speak 4 languages fluently.
Well, the Radio-frequency Identification (RFID)/ Near-field Communication (NFC) world is very similar to the one we live in today.
There are thousands of tags that speak different languages and integrating all of them into one system can be a hard task to conquer.
But with love technology, it's simple and quick.

Reading RFID/NFC Tags

To many businesses, RFID/NFC tags play an integral role in everyday tasks.
Driving on toll roads, clocking in for work, opening doors can all have some sort of RFID/NFC tag being used in the process.
Although they serve similar purposes, they speak in different languages.
These tags send out radio frequencies that range from 125 kHz to 1 GHz.
This means that some speak very low, and some speak very high.
There inlies the problem, not all readers can speak with such "vocal range".

However, there are a couple of solutions to this problem.

In fact, Serialio has created an RFID/NFC Reader that can read virtually every major access control badge type in the world.
Serialio's idChamp® RS4 BLE RFID Reader/Writer is the next generation in the idChamp® RS RFID Reader family.
It is able to scan almost every type of NFC tag including HID PROX, iCLASS Seos, iCODE, MiFARE, etc.
It also connects wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart (BLE) in less than one second to Bluetooth 4.0 enabled devices such as iPad, iPhone, Android phones & tablets, Windows 10 e.g. Surface Pro.

The idChamp® RS4 is the one-for-all solution.


The idChamp® RS4 with Omnikey® Bluetooth in Action

A major metropolitan healthcare network was using the idChamp RFID NFC reader, tablets and iScanBrowser to check-in employees at multiple facilities in the city with HID Global Access Control cards.
However, they were facing a problem: each facility used a different type of RFID Access Control Card: 
One was 37 bit Prox, another was 40 bit Prox, and the last one was an iClass card. 
Rather than spend more money on extra readers, Serialio recommended using the idChamp® RS4 with HID Global's Omnikey® 5127 technology as a single reader with technology to read multiple access control badge types.
The idChamp® RS4 can be programmed to read multiple cards.
