The Sentry Card Reader is designed for use in hazardous or harsh environments, with versions able to read a range of different card technologies. ATEX Certified to EEx ia IIC T4, the Sentry is Intrinsically Safe (IS) and suitable for use in the most hazardous of areas, including those classified as Zone 0 (Div.1) with a constant risk of an explosive atmosphere.
A non-contact technology where a card is read by passing it within a few centimetres of a radio frequency window on the front of the Sentry. With proximity technology the identification media can take a number of different formats, including a key fob device as an alternative to the standard Proximity card. Currently HID, EM4001 (or compatible) and MIFARE devices can be read with a Sentry.
A high security swipe card where data is encoded using wires embedded within the card during manufacture. Card data cannot be changed or reprogrammed. Wiegand cards are robust and reliable but relatively expensive
