13.56 MHz RFID Reader

The RFID reader is compatible with our WS4 Web server controller.

It can read 13.56 MHz credentials and communicate with our custom RS-485 protocol.

Identifiers, communication protocol and firmware updates can be configured using our XPR Product Manager software via the micro-USB input on the back of the reader or with a programming card.

Xsecure Solution

The Xsecure solution is based on the concept of writing the identifier as data on pre-coded MIFARE® DESFire® EV3 13.56 MHz cards.
Xsecure enables each card access key to be distinct and unique, produced through an irreversible diversification process. As a result, the data on the card is encrypted and sealed again, with an error checking against spoofing.
Only the reader and the production card encoding system are aware of this operation.
XPR encodes the cards and validates the identifiers issued to avoid duplication.


XS-MF-RS and XS-MF-RS-X read Mifare Classic, Ultralight and DESFire credentials with a read range of up to 6 cm.

Large LED surrounding the sensor for quick status readout

The state of the reader is displayed by the rectangular LED in tricolour.
When the card or key fob is presented, the reader changes the colour of the LED: it goes from orange to green if the access is authorised, or from orange to red if it is denied.
The reader is connected when the orange LED turns on (idle mode).
