ACS is a Leading Provider of Quality Proximity, Contactless, and Contact SmartCards.

Traditional Proximity (Contactless) Cards

Proximity cards support access control applications. A common application is door access, where fast, hands-free operation is preferred. Proximity cards have in internal antenna that broadcasts its identification credential to allow access. They are similar to contactless smart cards except that they are read-only devices and generally have a greater physical distance range of operation than smart cards.

MIFARE® Technology Proximity Cards

MIFARE® technology cards are proximity and much more! Unlike a proximity card that can only identify itself, a MIFARE® card can think. MIFARE® cards can be used in electronic purse applications and encrypted applications.

Common applications:

      • Access control
      • Photo Identification
      • Single sign-on, secure log-on

Way to Streamline Your Processes

A Smart Card is a plastic card with an embedded microchip that has processing capabilities and data storage capacity. Smart chips are available in different memory and format configurations: Contact smart cards and contactless smart cards.

Contactless Smart Cards have an embedded chip and antenna to transmit information through a radio frequency.

Common Applications Include:

      • Access control
      • Student identification
      • Vending
      • Parking
