HID Access Cards
HID's Access Card (Credentials)

A card (or transponder) is a passive electronic device that relies on a reader to provide the necessary power for start-up and communication. The card consists of an application-specific integrated circuit connected to a multi-turn antenna, that when combined, creates the 13.56 MHz resonant frequency. The card can also be manufactured with unique data for the purpose of anti-collision, as well as the personalized cardholder data for physical access control.
