Telaeris Intros RFID-enabled Android Handheld Security Badge Reader

Telaeris has announced that its XPID Series handheld badge reader can read security badges from a ruggedized Android device. With an XPID handheld, the firm reports, users can perform physical access-control functions whenever reading an RFID-enabled proximity badge is required.

The XPID devices feature Android 7.0 and a 5-inch Gorilla Glass screen, as well as GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE functionalities. The units can be provided in a PDA form factor (the XPID100) and in a pistol form factor (the XPID101). The XPID family provides options for high-resolution 1D and 2D bar-code reading, an integrated Crossmatch biometric fingerprint sensor and Near Field Communication (NFC) sensing technologies.

The XPID Series comes with Telaeris's dual-frequency XPressProx reader, which is capable of reading all LF and HF badges, including HID Prox, Indala, Casi-Rusco, iClass Legacy, SEOS and others. RFID options include Farpointe, Legic, UHF and active RFID badge technologies, for a variety of use cases. The devices, combined with Telaeris's XPressEntry software, allow users to verify access and enroll visitors. The system can be integrated with all major access-control systems, the company indicates, providing the ability to account for employees during emergency events.

The XPID/XPressEntry combination has been used for a variety of verification applications, the firm reports. This includes oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, large-scale office environments, employee busing, remote parking, off-site events, visitor management and training compliance tracking.
