Smart Card

For customers who require a contact smart chip module, HID has developed partnerships with the leading providers of application software and contact smart chip modules. Depending on your specifications, HID can embed contact smart chip modules from a number of industry leaders. When application software is needed, turn to HID’s partners.

HID's experience in developing card technologies, combined with a massive global installed base of users, positions us to play a critical role in the evolution and adoption of smart card technology. In addition to manufacturing a series of contact and contactless smart cards and proximity readers, HID has partnered with major suppliers and application developers to become the first point-of-contact for companies considering deploying a smart card program.

Smarts Program

The Secure Multi-Access Ready-To-Ship or SMARTS program offers low quantities (10-999) and quick delivery of 125 kHz proximity technology cards with an embedded contact smart chip module from leading smart chip vendors Axalto, Gemplus or Giesecke and Devrient (G & D). This creates the opportunity for small to mid-size companies to affordably purchase low quantities of multi-technology cards for demos or deployment. It also offers large enterprises the ability to obtain low-cost cards for pilot programs or to test applications. In addition to the ability to order low quantities, SMARTS program card order shipments have been reduced from 12 weeks to five working days from order confirmation.

The SMARTS program card is targeted for applications that combine contactless physical access with smart card applications. These SMARTS cards are also ideal for expanding card capabilities or for addressing new corporate, government or university market demands and they provide the ability to combine various technologies onto one card for end-user convenience and lower overall card costs.

Embeddable Smart Cards

The ability to create multi-technology cards is easy when you combine contact smart chips with either or both iCLASS 13.56 MHz contactless read/write smart card and 125 kHz proximity technology along with adding a magnetic stripe, barcode and anti-counterfeiting features including custom artwork or a photo identification directly on the credential.

Embeddable smart card options are also offered with 125 kHz proximity, magnetic stripe, MIFARE technologies along with a full complement of smart chip software applications for such diverse applications including access control, network log-on security, automotive vehicle identification, cashless vending, time and attendance, and biometric verification. HID works with numerous smart card providers and application developers to assist you in choosing the correct smart chip and application set. All embeddable card options meet strict ISO thickness standards for use with direct image and thermal transfer printers.
