Card Analyzer

Wave ID® Analyze - NEW!!

The Wave ID® Analyze is an intelligent portable tool used for identifying the proximity and contactless smart card technology in use at an organization. The Wave ID Analyze simplifies the process of matching the reader to the card type, eliminating the frustrating process of identifying the card type in use. It helps determine the compatible rf IDEAS dual frequency or single frequency reader. 

This card/credential analyzer helps users, solution providers and hardware/software integrators quickly and accurately determine the card technology which is then easily cross-referenced to the compatible reader using the Card/Reader Guide provided in the kit. The kit also includes one HID Prox® key fob and one iCLASS® ISO card for demonstration purposes.

The results displayed include the card type, data size and raw data (card CSN or UID) in hexadecimal format. Using the Card/Reader Guide, the compatible readers are shown along with the rf IDEAS® Configuration Utility Card Type Setting for WAVE ID Plus readers.

The Wave ID Analyze supports the most number of card types in use worldwide. It checks instantaneously for the card and sends the results as keystrokes to a text editors such as Microsoft® Notepad or the text field of any other application. No additional software is required. The Wave ID Analyze is compatible with nearly all computer operations systems that support USB keyboard devices.


Presence Detectors

WAVE ID® Sonar

The plug-and-play WAVE ID® Sonar solves security risks and privacy concerns with unattended computers without requiring additional software or user action. This solution is a presence detector, not a badge reader. When a user steps away from the computer, the product automatically locks the computer. It detects a user's presence so the computer will not lock until the user physically steps away, avoiding awkward time-out settings.

Ethernet 241

rf IDEAS card readers are ideal for customers seeking to leverage their existing card systems with Multi-Function Printer capabilities. With some network applications, the addition of a network drop to accommodate a card reader for secure printing is impractical. Users may also be left desiring additional features, such as data encryption and standardized communication across different reader types. In these cases, the preferred solution is to utilize a device that provides two Ethernet ports, acting as a two port switch that also provides the additional features for accessing card readers, eliminating the need for additional network drop installations and associated costs.
