Security solutions provider AMAG Technology has announced the launch of its first two readers in the new Javelin series, the 884-KP and 880-KP.
The Javelin 884-KP reads contactless NXP MIFARE and MIFARE DESFire smart cards, in addition to Personal Identity Verification (PIV), Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) and First Responder Authentication Card (FRAC) cards. The Javelin 880-KP reads 125kHz HID Proximity credentials. Other models will be released in the near future, says AMAG.
The readers also feature LCD displays that verify card acceptance or rejection, and can prompt for a user’s PIN to verify command functions. Access control and intrusion messaging such as PIN prompts, door information and intrusion area alarm status is displayed using configurable text, icons and graphical images.
An on-board Wiegand Interface enables a separate external reader to be connected to support additional card technologies such as bar code, magnetic strip, HID iCLASS and more. According to AMAG, this capability allows the customer to create a multi-technology portal by combining a legacy reader of their choice with the appropriate state-of-the-art Javelin model.
The Javelin series can operate as standard readers with Symmetry Security Management V6.x or as alarm keypads when used with Symmetry Homeland V7.
