HID® iCLASS® RKLB57 bioCLASS™ Reader/Enroller

Read-only with Biometric Verification and Enrollment - 6180
lector biometrico

Using 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology, the bioCLASS RKLB57 readers provides users with new options for supporting multi-factor authentication of identity. Combining contactless card presentation with a fingerprint biometric, the bioCLASS reader can also be used with personal identification numbers (PIN). Featuring multi-factor authentication, HID's bioCLASS readers offer the highest level of security. Storing the fingerprint template only on the smart card, users benefit from the increased security, faster throughput, easier system management, lower costs for the biometric reader and reduced concerns over individual privacy. Choose from three levels of security, including card/biometric fingerprint, card/PIN and card/fingerprint/PIN.

The bioCLASS RKLB57 is a read-only, contactless smart card reader with a keypad and biometric sensor that provides access control verification and fingerprint enrollment all in one reader.
