Card Reader



Technology Overview

The basis of computerized Time Attendance and Access Control solutions started when card based machines were launched several years back. The first cards based technologies were Barcode & Magnetic where printed barcode on card OR encoded magnetic stripes were swiped in machines to transfer user data for transactions. Later, RFID was introduced & took over as the touchless card based technology. Several types of RFID, barcode & magnetic machines exist in industry serving numerous organizations for their Time Attendance & Access Control requirements.

Individual cards are issued to users who are then uniquely identified by the machines, marking their transaction and also validating/authorizing any barrier to open against valid transaction. When used with flap barriers, turnstiles, etc. these machines can provide a total security solution for the organization.
