ACCESS interoperability.
Using 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology, the bioCLASS™ RKLB57 and
RWKLB575 family of readers provides users with new options for supporting multi-factor
authentication of identity. Combining contactless card presentation with a fingerprint
biometric, the bioCLASS can also be used with personal identification numbers (PIN).
wThe bioCLASS RKLB57 is a read-only contactless smart card reader with keypad and
biometric sensor
wThe bioCLASS RWKLB575 is a read/write contactless smart card reader with keypad
and biometric sensor
wThe bioCLASS BIO500 fingerprint biometric verification module is an additional
component for upgrading the RKL55/RWKL550 LCD/Keypad reader to a biometric
Complete with enrollment software to guide users through the verification process, HID’s
bioCLASS readers offer the highest level of security. Storing the fingerprint template only
on the smart card and never transmitting the information to an external host, users
benefit from the increased security, faster throughput, easier system management, lower
costs for the biometric reader and reduced concerns over individual privacy.
wThree levels of security to choose from: card and PIN; card and fingerprint; card, PIN
and fingerprint
wLCD display provides feedback on user finger placement and defines custom menu keys
wIncludes enrollment software with CP575 unit for writing the biometric template
directly to the card
wFeatures unique modular design providing a high level of flexibility for a range of
wIncludes raised tactile mark on the five (“5”) key for visually impaired users
wIncludes cost-effective field upgrade from keypad with LCD display (RKL55/RWKL550)
to a biometric solution without downtime
Graphical Display
Indoor Design
Rugged, weatherized polycarbonate enclosure provides reliable
performance and resistance to vandalism. (Please note that these
products are not suitable for outdoor use.)
64-bit authentication keys are extremely secure. Readers
and cards require matching keys to function. All RF data
transmission between the card and keypad reader is
encrypted, using a secure algorithm. The key management
system reduces the risk of compromised or duplicated cards.
Enrollment software included with the CP575 unit is required to
write the biometric template to the cards. The template never
enters the PC – it is collected by the reader and written to the
iCLASS® card all in one simple process. To alleviate privacy
and database management concerns, the biometric template is
stored on the iCLASS card rather than in the unit.
The backlit graphical LCD display offers a 60 x 18 mm
viewing area, 120 x 32 resolution. It is factory preset to
provide written instructions to the user. Fully customizable,
the display also describes the function of the user function
Offers 12 discrete switches with metal keycaps. Raised tactile
mark on the fifth key for visually impaired users. Configurable
audio feedback. Backlit numbers in bezel overlay, above each
key. Lighting is configurable: Always On, Triggered by Card
Read, or Triggered by Key Press.
