Smart Cards

Move Up To Cutting Edge Card Technology
The Most Effective 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 have a visible chip on the card and require insertion into a card reader for reading.

Contactless Smart cards have an embedded chip and antenna to transmit information though a radio frequency.


Common applications include:

  • Access control
  • Student identification
  • Vending
  • Parking or tolls
  • Fast food service

A Photo ID System supports either contact or contactless smart cards. This can provide an all-in-one access and identification card system.
