Secure Badgeholder

- J.A.M. Plastics of Burlington, Massachusetts, offers a new employee ID badge holder designed to prevent unauthorized data skimming of embedded information. The Secure Badgeholder provides a shield against unauthorized access to contactless information stored on personal identity verification (PIV) cards, common access cards (CAC), and other contactless smart cards.

ID Printing

- Datacard Group of Minnetonka, Minnesota, has introduced the Datacard Artista retransfer color-printing module for the Datacard MX6000 card issuance system. The module delivers edge-to-edge, full-color card printing with 600 dpi image quality and an array of advanced card personalization capabilities.

Nuclear Identifier

- Canberra Industries, Inc., of Meriden, Connecticut, has introduced the Falcon 5000 HPGe Isotope Identifier, which combines a high-purity Germanium detector, ultra-low noise pulse tube cooling, and spectroscopy algorithms to deliver isotope identification.

Card Readers

- HID Global Corporation of Irvine, California, has added two new readers to its line of multiCLASS readers. The GSA-approved product line now includes the RPK40, a keypad reader for dual-factor authentication that combines contactless card presentation with a PIN for additional security. The second new reader is the RP15, for easily upgrading the widely used MiniProx to a reader that offers high-performance smart card capabilities.

Monochrome Printer

- The Zebra P330m can print an ID card in 5.2 seconds. The high-volume monochrome card printer was created by Zebra Technologies of Camarillo, California, especially for users who print large quantities of cards and for those who personalize preprinted cards. It also provides magnetic stripe and smart card encoding.

Virtual IDs

- HID Global of Irvine, California, is offering a vehicle for delivery of virtual secure identity credentials. The idBank System enables the delivery of HID Proximity, HID Indala Proximity, CASI Proximity, and HID iCLASS security credential formats to radio-frequency technology-enabled tokens.

Hand Readers

- Schlage HandKey readers and Ingersoll Rand HandPunch terminals now employ BioCote silver antimicrobial technology to reduce the spread of microorganisms from user to user.

ID Software

- Minneapolis-based Fargo Electronics, Inc., has launched OnQueue Card Production Software, an application that connects multiple standalone ID card printers into a centralized system for large-volume card production.

Fingerprint Module

- ODI Security, LLC, of Mountain View, California, has designed new standalone fingerprint modules. The modules use high-security algorithms and FingerChip fingerprint sensor technology from Atmel Corporation of San Jose, California. Modules operate on batteries and are suitable for outdoor use in temperatures ranging from –40 degrees to 85 degrees Celsius.

Contactless ID Cards

- An enhanced line of contactless credentials using NXP MIFARE MINI has been introduced by ASSA ABLOY Identification Technologies of Walluf, Germany. Sokymat credentials that can be created using this IC technology include ISO cards, ID bands, key fobs, and more. These credentials are designed for applications that require a small amount of memory but require the same security features and file structure as MIFARE Standard 1k. The cards and other credentials are especially cost-effective for building access and personal identification solutions.

Visitor Software

- Datacard Group of Minnetonka, Minnesota, has introduced the Datacard ID Works Visitor Manager software v6.0, easy-to-use software that enrolls visitors using their government-issued credentials and produces secure IDs in seconds. The new version includes a barred-visitor list and history database, which enables the operator to allow or deny access to persons on the list.

Fingerprint Device

- Datastrip Inc. of Exton, Pennsylvania, has integrated the TouchChip TCS1 silicon fingerprint sensor from UPEK, Inc., of Emeryville, California, into its DSVII-SC (smart card) and DSVII-PA (passport) hand-held ID verification devices. The fingerprint sensor performs well for a wide range of conditions and finger types, making it effective for capturing fingerprint images in real-world conditions.

ID Printer

- The HDP5000 single-sided ID card printer/encoder from Fargo Electronics, Inc., offers reverse-image printing. It works by printing a reverse image on the underside of special film and then fusing the film to the card surface. Reverse-image printing produces high-security, high-volume ID badges via the company’s patented high-definition printing technology.
