HID® multiCLASS® RP40 Reader

Multi-Technology Prox and iCLASS Reader
RP40 multiCLASS® Reader

The RP40 is a multi-technology card reader designed for customers upgrading their current card system from HID Prox to iCLASS credentials. With the RP40 reader, the customer has the ability to transition to smart cards over time while incorporating the use of multiple card technologies within a single building or across multiple facilities.

Unlike contactless smart card serial number readers, with the RP40 multiCLASS reader, you get enhanced security through mutual authentication and data encryption. Only the RP40 provides true iCLASS security, the ease of Prox, the power of smart cards and the confidence of choosing HID, the worldwide leader in access control.

Key Features:

  • Higher card to reader security than CSN only multi-technology readers.
  • Eliminates card format transition problems.
  • Easy to customize to ensure security.
  • No reader "confusion" when using combination cards.
  • Widest variety of readers available for mixing and matching
  • Custom site keys for maximum security
  • Lifetime warranty
