Central Services for Identification offers a high security proximity card - smart cards - containing biometric data with complete protection against counterfeit through the use of either a hologram laminate or through the use of a unique, low cost, hologram coating technology.

For the highest level of security biometric or body measurement - such as a fingerprint or retinal scan - can be used to reliably identify authorized personnel. The most practical way to implement a system like this is to store the encoded biometric on a smart card containing a micro chip which has a built-in memory and encryption processor. When the card is used, the smart card reader ensures that the code on the card is valid and then waits for a live fingerprint scan which matches the fingerprint stored on the card before granting access. The cards used in a biometric access control system can either be contact or perimeter type. A Contact type system requires direct insertion of the card into a card reader. A perimeter type operates in a similar way to a prox card but using a higher frequency (13.5 MHz). CSI has the ability to print smart cards and encode them in one operation. Our clients are assured the highest level of security protection.

CSI - Products & Services - proximitycards

When the prox card is within a foot or so of the Prox reader, the 125 KHz signal from the reader is picked up by the card antenna and used to power-up the micro chip which then replies with its own unique code. Proximity Cards, or "Prox" as they are often called, are standard size plastic ID cards which contain a coil antenna and a pre-programmed micro chip containing a unique code.
