HID Global OMNIKEY® 5125

The HID Global OMNIKEY® 5125 supports 125 kHz HID PROX technology while providing ISO 7816 and EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) support for contact cards. It is the ideal device for HID PROX-based contactless physical access technology solutions as well as all contact-related applications.

Based on a 125kHz contactless interface that reads the unique number from existing HID proximity cards the HID Global OMNIKEY® 5125 allows organizations to implement new PC-linked applications without the need to re-badge cardholders. Many organizations use an HID proximity card for instance for building access and as a corporate or student ID. The dual interface feature economically supports end-user environments where both HID proximity and contact smart card technology may be needed.

As the reader complies with PC/SC and Microsoft® WHQL and has proximity capability it is easy to integrate.
