For proximity cards, factory default reader configurations will read the card serial number (CSN/UID).

1. Reader configurations that read a custom sector or stamp are available through Equitrac professional services.

2. iCLASS: card serial number/ unique identification number only. HITAG S: unencrypted modes only.

For proximity cards, factory default reader configurations will read the card serial number (CSN/UID).

1. Reader configurations that read a custom sector or stamp are available through Equitrac professional services.

2. By default readers return a unique ID (UID) for each card or tag within a given transponder family. It is not possible for the reader to access any other data stored in transponders designated 'UID only'.

3. Transponder is supported by reader hardware but special firmware may be required to recover a unique ID or other data. Programmed samples of customer cards must be submitted for evaluation, contact eq_rdrqual@nuance.com.

4. Range varies with transponder type and is based on the use of standard identification and financial (ISO 7811) sized cards with readers mounted to a non-metallic surface. Use of alternate transponder formats (fobs, stickers, mechanical keys with smart heads, etc.) or mounting to a metallic surface results in a reduction of the published read range.

5. Access to encrypted transponder data requires customization of the reader via creation and download of secure configuration files. For more information contact eq_rdrqual@nuance.com

6. Response time is dependent on the reader configuration and number of card systems in use. Response to first presentation of a given transponder occurs within 600 ms, response time for subsequent presentations of similar transponder types is reduced.
