Simplify authentication and access with the versatile WAVE ID Nano reader.

The WAVE ID Nano reader incorporates all the features of the desktop and surface mount readers into an ultra-compact USB format. Its small size makes it easy for embedding into monitor housings, connecting to printers or for the mobile worker to do their job while complying with organizational guidelines for authentication, identification and access. The WAVE ID Nano reader mounted in a laptop or tablet can help IT organizations protect valuable information while giving employees the ability to freely go to where the work is with the assurance of security, easy identification and simple access. Even with requirements for multiple passwords and access to various secured applications, the login process shouldn’t get in the way of doing work. In time-sensitive situations, every second counts.

The ultra compact, USB format Nano badge reader is available in either 125 kHz proximity or 13.56 MHz contactless formats and includes all of the features found on the WAVE ID® Solo desktop and surface mount readers. Its small size makes it easy for the mobile worker to do their job while complying with organizational guidelines for authentication, identification and access.

Feature-Rich, Small Reader Profile

The revolutionary small size brings significant opportunity and flexibility in terms of solution variety and integration opportunities. The small form factor is not intrusive to the laptop user and avoids breakage costs common with larger dongle style readers. This compact reader lessens the number of pieces of hardware required for various solutions when embedded within housings or keyboards, for example, in solutions where access control is required. The WAVE ID Nano 13.56 MHz reader is available with up to four badge (card) configurations. It also includes auto tuning for 13.56 MHz readers to ensure optimal read performance which can counter the effects of card variability or environmental factors.

Backwards Compatibility

rf IDEAS® products are backward compatible. The WAVE ID Nano reader easily integrates into existing 125 kHz proximity or 13.56 MHz contactless smart card systems. The reader utilizes the existing configuration utility eliminating the need to create new applications. For partner applications that support WAVE ID readers, the WAVE ID Nano can be easily integrated which means no additional modification or training is required.

Secure Access

When an employee is away from the laptop or desktop computer, it is critical to secure access to the information. A WAVE ID Nano reader allows a user to easily access the device with a simple wave of an authorized badge. No longer does the user need cumbersome passwords. Multiple access cards can be configured to authenticate a single device, for environments where a computer is shared by several individuals. For secure printing, the compact size complements the efficiency of single and multi-function printers where print management software ensures print jobs are not released until an employee waves his badge at the reader.
