Touch Card™ technology combines a legacy card technology with a high-tech solid state reader. The cards contain a Barium Ferrite insert, which is encoded by magnetizing spots in a specific pattern with specific polarities. While the original mechanical technology used an insert reader with small magnets and a micro switch, the patented slotless TOUCHCARD™ reader uses sophisticated Hall-effect sensors to read the cards through a stainless steel plate, and it is protected from weather and vandalism.
OEM/Wiegand Output Readers – The SK-029W acts as a secondary reader with the 28SA-Plus. It is also available in a 26-bit Wiegand Output version, which allows SKC-06 TouchCards to be used with any access control system.
