Discover Siemens Next Generation Mifare Card Reader range

As well as being attractive, Siemens Next Generation Card Readers introduce dynamic new features and an OLED display to simplify installation and in-service functionality.

Designed for today's bright, clean interiors, yet robust in service, our next generation of Mifare card readers are easy to install, use and maintain. The AR4xS - reader with keypad and graphical display maximises the user interaction with arming, access and recognition messaging etc., resulting in improved and enhanced user interaction "at the door".

Light frame and tactile, intuitive user interface.

Both models have three indicator LEDs and a multi tone buzzer for audio verification. A multicolour light frame enforces access status information. This can be configured to follow the indicator LEDs. Display brilliance is set automatically by an inbuilt light sensor.

Near Field Communications (NFC) ready

The card readers are also made NFC ready.

Vandal resistant

When surface mounted the card readers comply to IK08 vandalism protection for longevity in the harshest environments.

Ready integration with SiPass integrated

The new range of card readers have been designed to work with SiPass integrated MP2.5 or later. *

  • Easy installation and maintenance
    Only four wires are needed to connect the reader to the system. Configuration of the card readers can easily be achieved by using a configuration card.
  • 3CT Configuration Card Creation Tool
    With 3CT it is easy to configure the light frame, LED, buzzer, back-light of the keypad, set the reader address and define card reading profiles for the reader
