Product family

13.56 MHz Mifare reader units About the 13.56 MHz Mifare family

The 13.56 MHz Mifare readers are part of the HMD generation, 100% made in Germany! They read all Mifare as well as ISO 14443-A transponders: Mifare Classic, Mifare Mini, Mifare Ultralight, Mifare Desfire and Legic Advant. What they have in common is that they work with optional 128-bit AES encryption in conjunction with Mifare DESFire EV2 transponders. This means that they meet the highest security requirements. In addition, the majority of these readers—depending on the design—are VdS Class C approved.

The 128-bit AES encryption of the reader can be activated using the enclosed security card, the  "ReaderSecurityCard." Please note that only Mifare DESFire transponders encoded by sesamsec can be read in the encrypting VdS operating mode.

Encrypting VdS operating mode in conjunction with Telenot

Important for you to know: If a Mifare HMD reader is operated on a Telenot complex or hiplex control panel, the reader automatically detects this after being switched on. In this case, the encryption of the reader is not switched on or off via the security card, but the system key is administered via the Telenot system and sent to the reader via the comlock interface. Thus, only Mifare DESFire transponders that have been encoded to the respective system via the Telenot system are read in the encrypting operating mode.

Please keep this in mind when selecting your product.

We want your reader to fit perfectly into your existing system landscape. Do you have any questions on this topic? Our sales team is always ready to provide you with competent support.

The firmware installed during production determines which interface and which required protocol the individual reader uses and thus which system it can be operated on. Therefore, please pay attention to the correct article number when ordering. It is also possible to update the firmware of the reader and thus, among other things, the interface used in the field. This is possible via the RS485 interface of the reader with an associated PC tool after the reader has been set to configuration mode using the RSC security card.
