8 CL 2.0 now encrypts Wiegand
Historically, a glaring flaw of the Wiegand interface was that data transfers were always unprotected. Skimmers eavesdropping on cable amplitude modulations could identify credential data. Idesco’s new 8 CL 2.0 LEGIC® reader now offers you an option for encrypting data over Wiegand with a 128 bit AES cipher, applied at the reader, for decryption by your system. If you are interested in learning more about this option, please contact Idesco.
Don’t forget 8 CL 2.0 is available in a variety of durable reader housing options with the highest combined durability and protection classes!
Long range readers are designed explicitly for applications where identification is required at distances beyond what standard RFID can offer. Read more about the capabilities Idesco EPC readers and tags already have to ensure the success of your long-range applications.
