Our Price : $175.82

Product Code: DS-ARDR40


The R40 iCLASS Switchplate Reader offers the benefits of contactless smart card technology and proximity technology. Smart card technology provides enhanced security and a 13.56 MHz platform for speed. Use contactless credentials (cards, tokens, or tags) with larger memory and the capacity for special applications such as biotechnology. Proximity technology, provides a longer read range.

Distinct Audio and Visual Indicators Different tone sequences indicate status conditions such as access granted, access denied, power up, and diagnostics. The light bar at the top of the reader provides visual status indication in red, green, or yellow light. The light is high-intensity so the color remains visible in bright sunlight. The audio and visual indicators help visually impaired users to distinguish between access granted and access denied.

Enhanced Security:
The R40 iCLASS Switchplate Reader uses enhanced security techniques to reduce the risk of compromised data or duplicated cards. Access control data transmits over a radio frequency (RF) between a credential and a reader. The R40 iCLASS Switchplate Reader and its compatible iCLASS credentials have standard 64-bit authentication keys (codes) that must match in order to begin the RF data transmission. A secure algorithm encrypts the data during the RF transmission, making the data difficult for an unauthorized person to decipher and misuse.

Flexible Installation Options:
The R40 iCLASS Switchplate Reader has a mounting plate that attaches to a single-gang wall switch electrical enclosure (back box), a 2 in. to 2.4 in. (5.2 cm to 6.0 cm screw hole spacing (vertical or horizontal), or a flat surface. Attaching the R40 iCLASS Switchplate Reader to metal surfaces affects the read range only slightly.
