Cryptag® 'hands free' readers are compatible with the Cryptag® 'proximity' units described elsewhere. Cryptags® can be identified simultaneously over different ranges at a typical static reading rate of 5 tags per second. Cryptags® can be reported entering or leaving the reader field.
Alternatively, and uniquely to Cryptag® product, the tags can be reported continuously whist in the field, or on entering and leaving the field. These, and other software options which include the creation of sophisticated 'look-up' tables, pairing of tags and tag counter displays, are available.

The readers are available with either a Wiegand, RS232 or Mag-stripe output. The protocol and exact output format can be tailored to specific client requirements.
