HID® iCLASS® 206x Tag with Adhesive Back

Smart card upgrade tag for mag stripe & barium ferrite cards
206x iCLASS Tag with Adhesive Back Smart Card

The HID iCLASS Tag can turn a plastic ID badge into an iCLASS contactless smart card credential. Effortlessly upgrade from Prox, mag stripe or barium ferrite technology to a smart card technology with more secure access control by simply attaching the small, circular iCLASS Tag to your existing card. The iCLASS Tag will also adhere to any non-metallic device to instantly create a contactless smart card.

iCLASS was specifically designed to make access control more powerful, more versatile, and more secure. iCLASS 13.56 MHz read/write contactless smart card technology provides versatile interoperability in applications such as access control, network log-on security, cashless vending, time and attendance, event management and biometric identification.

iCLASS technology ensures high security with mutual authentication between card and reader, encrypted data transfer, and 64-bit diversified keys for read/write capabilities. Securely separated files enable multiple applications and support future growth.
