S3020 Portable Reader

The S3020 Portable Reader is a lightweight, waterproof, and rugged hand-held card reading device. It can be used for ID card validation at remote sites or temporary entrances which have no power, and can also be used as a mobile device for random checks within pre-defined zones.

Up to 200,000 card IDís can be held in the readerís database for differentiation between authorised and unauthorised personnel. Up to 8,000 offline card swipe transactions can also be stored for on-line transmission to the AC2000 system via built-in 802.11g WiFi connection, (supports WPA2-AES Encryption).

Card technologies supported include 125kHz HID Proximity, 13.56MHz MiFare (also supports DESFire CSN 32bit), Picopass and iClass.

A large full colour TFT touchscreen provides quick and easy navigation with the onboard menu options, and also provides information about card validity (e.g. Card Valid, Not In System, and Wrong Timezone).
