ShadowProx Proximity Readers deliver outstanding and consistent performance with intelligent programming technology
and stylish bezel designs. ShadowProx readers are available in an arch style and offer different mounting options.
These readers are mountable on door mullions, on walls, on a single or double gang electrical box, as well as any flat surface.
All ShadowProx 125 kHz Proximity Readers feature an added level of access control system security through
a verification process at the reader that screens out unauthorized cards prior to sending card data to the host system.
These readers use Kantech’s KSF cards (Kantech Secure Format) which provide increased security and absolute guarantee of
no duplication of cards. In addition to the 125 kHz HID proximity readers, Kantech offers the ultimate migration tool-the
multiCLASS reader. MultiCLASS multi-technology card readers combine 125 kHz proximity technology and iCLASS 13.56 MHz
contactless smart card and reader technologies into a single reader. They are designed for customers who are upgrading
their current card system from ShadowProx Proximity to ShadowProx iCLASS credentials or cards. Both “old” and “new” card
formats can be accommodated which allows for a smoother transition.
Kantech has partnered with industry leaders to provide a high-security personnel identification system using biometrics
to establish an imposter-free identity database and to verify the identity of authorized persons. Access control biometrics
includes everything that requires identity authentication by scanning a person's unique physical characteristics such
as fingerprints and hand geometry. Biometrics offers a superior combination of strength, affordability, convenience and
ease of use. It is used where high security is a necessity such as hospitals, police, the military as well as the financial
In addition to biometric identification, these solutions also offer a verification process using a card
credential. These biometric solutions are available with an integrated card reader or can be connected to an external reader.
Both the fingerprint reader and the hand scanner can be integrated into Kantech’s access control system.

• UV protectant prevents discoloring
The Polaris-2 series provides the right combination of quality and reliability.
A card can be swiped through the reader in both directions and the reader’s microprocessor automatically detects
and rejects read errors. The reader has four different configurable output modes (26-bit Wiegand, 34-bit Wiegand,
ABA-Clock & Data and ABA-Wiegand), so that readers can be installed on existing systems. The different output modes
are obtained by connecting the proper wires during installation, to program the reader. The mode can be changed by
simply powering the reader down and rewiring it for the new mode. The “*” push-button on the keypad of the POL-2KP
is a dry contact with a 50 mA power rating. It can be connected to an alarm panel or to an intercom’s door call input,
