Ultra ID Releases New Proximity Access Cards

Ultra ID Releases New Proximity Access Cards

Ultra ID Releases New Proximity Access CardsProximity cards are one of the most ubiquitous technologies for physical security. They are used throughout office buildings, hospitals, schools and other organizations to unlock doors, open gates and monitor access to secure facilities.

UltraSecure proximity cards were designed from the ground-up by Ultra ID to simplify the process of installing additional or replacement proximity cards at any secure facility. They seamlessly integrate with all existing proximity systems. An advanced read/write data chip allows the UltraSecure card to hold one of 137 billion unique security codes. The chip is compatible with 26-40 bit proximity systems including all standard and most custom formats.

Many legacy proximity cards have a bulky “clamshell” design in order to increase durability. UltraSecure cards have a thin, credit-card ISO CR-80 form factor that matches the durability of “clamshell” cards by incorporating high-strength PET composite plastics into the card design. PET composite is stronger than the PVC plastic that is used in many traditional proximity cards, so UltraSecure credentials resist warping and yellowing. Unlike PVC, PET is also recyclable so that facilities using UltraSecure cards can meet Zero Waste goals.

UltraSecure proximity credentials are produced in the United States and internationally by a network of ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facilities and proprietary personalization centers. Ultra ID has leveraged its experience in card personalization to shorten the supply chain for proximity cards so that users can receive custom-programmed shipments of up to 10,000 proximity credentials in under a week from an Ultra ID dealer. Moreover, Ultra ID guarantees every credential for as long as it is in use and supports customers with locally staffed technical support teams.
