The ultra-slim WAVE ID SP Plus and WAVE ID SP merge form with function.

These multi-purpose, slim card readers for identification, authentication and logical access are available in either dual frequency (WAVE ID SP Plus) or single frequency (WAVE ID SP). The small, thin form factor enables various integrated or OEM installations in recessed compartments, as well as external mounting configurations. Additionally, the reader can fit into a variety of purpose-built devices such as time clocks, kiosks, or protective enclosures.

Designed for Flexibility and Adaptability

Versatile and scalable, the WAVE ID SP Plus combines proximity and contactless technologies into one reader, while the WAVE ID SP offers convenience for users who only utilize contactless credentials. The WAVE ID SP Plus incorporatets a SIM card slot for expansion to read additional secure card types. These card readers are designed for customers seeking to leverage their existing card system for applications. The reader, combined with existing or new employee badges and application software, is the perfect trifecta for deploying solutions.

Features includes:

  • Four ID badge (card) configurations to accommodate multi-card systems
  • Auto-tuning 13.56 MHz antenna to optimize performance in various environments
  • User-selectable volume control including a beeper off setting for high noise or quiet zones
  • The dual frequency pcProx Plus SP enables secure card types with a SIM card supporting iCLASS SE® and Seos® (enables additional secure card types)

Keyboard Emulation

Connecting directly into a USB port, the WAVE ID SP Plus reader emulates a keyboard and outputs the badge ID and/or site code to the cursor’s location on the screen. When an employee badge is presented to the reader, employee credentials will pass instantly to an organization’s back-end network for authentication and access validation with an employee database, application, or active directory. The reader is highly configurable using the rf IDEAS Configuration Utility.
