HID® 601X SIO™ Enabled UHF/iCLASS® Card

Smart card for parking and gate applications
SIO Enabled UHF iClass card

Extend your iCLASS or iCLASS SE access control solution to include long range parking and gate control. This dual technology solution conveniently supports door, parking and gate control on a single card credential.

HID Global’s SIO Enabled UHF/iCLASS Smart Card is the most secure UHF credential available. Data is password protected for safe storage of confidential or sensitive data in the tag’s user memory. In addition, HID Global’s Secure Identity Object (SIO) data model adds an additional layer of encryption and authentication for advanced security and performance.

When branding and visual security are important, the SIO Enabled UHF/iCLASS Smart Card can be graphically enhanced with custom artwork, photo identification or anti-counterfeiting features such as holograms or micro-printing using a high definition print process.
