• ioSmart Card Reader models
• Technical features
Overview
The Kantech ioSmart Card Reader family provides a high level of security by enabling end-toend encryption between the I.D. badge credentials and the Kantech access control
management software. The ioSmart Card Reader uses a well-recognized encryption algorithm
(AES-128, a U.S. NIST encryption specification) to accomplish this.
To ensure this high level of security, this encryption is used between the I.D. badge and the
card reader, between the card reader and the controller and between the controller and the
Kantech access control management software 1 .

The reader also supports the transmission of card numbers using the Wiegand protocol.
Supported formats include the standard 34-bit format, the standard 26-bit format, most
common HID formats and other Kantech proprietary formats like eXtended Secure Format
(XSF) and Smartcard Secure Format (SSF).
The design of these readers supports indoor as well as outdoor installations. For PIN entry and
other functions, some models of these readers integrate a backlit, capacitive touch keypad.
The absence of moving parts and exposure to the environment ensures years of reliability2 .
To provide an easy upgrade path to customers, some models support both the ioSmart Card
technology and the Kantech proximity technology (ioProx)2.
To future-proof the product, these readers are field upgradable with future releases of their
firmware 3.

Technical features
This section describes the controllers that both the wiegand and RS-485 modes support. It also
outlines how the reader automatically detects which mode after installation. It explains that
existing access cards that use either the Kantech ioProx or Mifare Plus technology are
compatible with the ioSmart Card Reader. The functionality of the keypad and how the no
interaction setting is configured using the EntraPass software is discussed. Finally an
explanation of the various LED statuses and the security optical tamper is provided.
Wiegand mode
The ioSmart Card Reader is compatible with all access controllers through the Wiegand
interface port.
RS-485 mode
The RS-485 mode supports two access controllers, the Kantech KT-400 and KT-1.
RFID technologies
Wire loop antennas are used to generate the radio frequency identification (RFID) signals and are
compatible with ioSmart, ioProx and HID proximity cards.
Capacitive touch keypad
The 12 capacitive touch keys are backlit with light-emitting diodes (LEDs). By default the
backlighting will illuminate in the following situations:
• The user taps the keypad. The first tap is not considered an entry.
• The user swipes a card.
Once the backlighting initiates, the keypad has focus and the user can enter digits. The reader
will dim and turn off to save energy with no interaction for 10 seconds.
Note: Use the EntraPass software to configure the no interaction time to suit your own preference.
The default is 10 seconds.
Auto-detection
After installation, no configuration is necessary. The reader will default to Wiegand
automatically. With RS-485 detection, a format switch will be automatic.
LED status bar
The LED status bar indicates various access conditions to the user. These are the default
colors:
• Red:
Locked
• Green:
Unlocked
• Blue:
Keypad press
• Yellow:
Tamper detection
Note: In RS-485 mode up to eight status colors are supported and can be customized through the
EntraPass software.

12
Optical tamper
For tamper security a light reflective sensor on the reader detects a reflective part on the
mounting plate. Tamper detection initiates if the reader separates from the mounting plate
more than 5 mm. A detachable bracket enables direct wall mounting, in this position, tamper
detection initiates if the whole assembly separates from the wall.
The security enhancing optical tamper is available in both RS-485 mode and Wiegand mode. In
Wiegand mode, the KT-400 and KT-1 controllers support the feature.

Mounting
This chapter describes how to mount the ioSmart Card Reader in the most appropriate
location and how to set-up the tamper detection. There are two levels of tamper detection;
the first is if an intruder pulls the front cover from the back panel, the second is if an
intruder pulls the entire panel from the wall. To guarantee correct setup a trained installation
technician should install the reader and follow the instructions provided in this manual.
Overview
A wall is the best place to mount the single gang reader while a doorframe is the best
location for the mullion reader.
To mount the reader, complete the following steps:
Do not over tighten the screws especially if mounting on an uneven wall.
1 - Pull the controller’s wires from the wall and put them through the hole in the mounting
plate.
2 - Attach the mounting plate to a flat wall using two screws, #6-32.

Configuring the reader
This chapter describes how to configure the reader by short circuiting the wires on the
terminal, and by using your Kantech smart card. It also describes how to assign an
identification number and color to a reader for easy identification when using an EntraPass
application.

2 - Short circuit together the D1 and LED terminals.
3 - Apply power to the reader.
4 - A simultaneous sequence of four beeps and flashes, four times is a signal of a successful return to
the SSF transmission format. A sequence of rapid beeps and flashes for four seconds is the signal of
an unsuccessful return to the SSF transmission format.

Configuring the reader using a Kantech smartcard
This section describes how to use a Kantech smartcard to configure a reader. This method is
an alternative to using the terminal block to short together two or more outputs.
Up to seven different modes are available for configuration. The following steps describe the
first two modes. For other modes follow the same steps, but substitute the appropriate values
from Table 1. To configure a reader using a card, complete the following steps:
1 - Reset the reader to factory default mode and present the card within the first 10 seconds,
maintain contact for at least four seconds. The reader will beep once and the LED will
flash once.
2 - To enable Wiegand 34-bit format transmission, present the card to the reader once. Five
seconds later, the reader will beep once and the LED will flash once to confirm mode 1.
To enable Wiegand 26-bit format transmission, present the card to the reader twice. Five
seconds after the last card presentation, the reader will beep twice and the LED will flash
twice to confirm mode 2.
3 - Present the card one final time to confirm configuration. The reader will acknowledge the
new configuration with a one second continuous beep and LED activation.
The following table outlines the amount of card presentations required for each mode.

Table 1 Card configuration modes
Note: If you select a nonexistent mode, the error mode is triggered, this is a burst of beeps and a flashing LED for four seconds.
Once the configuration is confirmed, the reader will accept another configuration within 10
seconds. If you want to use the card to reconfigure the reader, you have to return to factory
default mode.
