SiPass Readers

SiPass readers - Robust, reliable and easy to use

PP500-EM_HD500-EM_group_144x202Siemens provides a wide range of readers to satisfy the access control requirements of most environments. Our readers can work with virtually any access control system on the market, but they are specifically tested and qualified for use with SiPass systems.

Designed for easy installation and use, the SiPass reader portfolio includes technologies ranging from magnetic stripe to 125 kHz proximity, multi-purpose smart card technology, and Cotag technology. Each technology type includes at least one model with an integrated keypad to enable card-plus-PIN functionality, which is ideal for higher security applications.

Siemens’ Cotag technology is unique on the market in that it provides both proximity and hands-free card reading in the same system. All Cotag readers can read both active (long-range) and passive (proximity) Cotag cards and tags, and both types of cards can be mixed in the same system to provide ultimate convenience and cost-efficiency.

The majority of SiPass readers support Siemens’ advanced reader protocols – BC-Link or CerPass (RS485). The advantages of using these protocols include the ability to connect two readers to a single door controller, which simplifies the installation and reduces costs, and active monitoring of reader status, which enhances security.

Whichever type of SiPass readers you choose, you can be confident that they will significantly enhance security at your site(s).

Introduction

Cotag “active” technology makes use of an onboard battery in the cards or tags that boosts the reading range between the card or tag and the reader. The use of active technology cards and tags in conjunction with long range readers and loops enables true hands-free operation.
