The new Schlage readers, when used with new Schlage smart credentials, provide a baud rate transfer of up to 848 kbps between the credential and reader. These readers also come standard as FIPS 201/ PIV II compliant readers, ready to be used in government applications:

  • The SXF2200 Mid-Range Contactless Smart Credential Reader is ideal, with its provided read range, for mounting on single gang U.S. electrical boxes.

  • The SXF2210 Mid-Range Contactless Smart Credential Reader is for higher security applications where two factor (card and/or pin number) authentications are desirable.
