ARC-F - 13.56 MHz DESFire® EV2 touchscreen/keypad biometric readers


Welcome To High Security

The reader uses the latest MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 contactless chip technologies with new data security mechanisms:

• Secure Messaging EV2: secure transaction method based on AES-128 with protection against interleaving and replay attacks.

• Proximity Check: improved protection against relay attacks.

All public encryption algorithms can be used (3DES, AES, RSA, SHA, etc.), which are recommended by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI).


Easily Manage a Multi-Factor Identification

The ARC-F Architect® reader combines the latest MIFARE® technologies with touch screen/keypad and fingerprint recognition to enhance the security of your access control system.

Thanks to its various operating modes (card AND key or card OR key), you can use the keypad to identify people or to activate additional functions (activation of the intrusion alarm…).

You can combined information (logo, instructions, images…) and keypad display with a simple touch on the screen


Fingerprint Management

The reader offers several fingerprint management possibilities depending on your security needs.

  • Fingerprint templates directly stored in the RFID card (CNILFrench legislation compliance)

  • Fingerprint templates stored in the reader or in the system

  • Biometric derogation to manage one-time visitor or difficult finger etc.


Advanced Anti-Fraud Functions

The Architect® biometric reader is designed to resist fraud attempts:

  • False finger detection: the reader detects a wide range of counterfeit fingerprints made of latex, Kapton, transparent film, rubber, graphite, etc.

  • Detection of live fingers

  • Duress finger: the admin can assign a finger number dedicated to authentication when the user is threatened.

"Scramble Pad" Function


The scramble pad mode enhances the security of your access control system and prevents stolen access codes because numbers are randomly scrambled on the display.

Create Your Own Scalable Configuration

The Architect® series is intuitive and dynamic, and consists of 5 interchangeable modules that can easily be connected to a common smart RFID core.

This easy and cost saving modular approach allows autonomy on the security access management.

Best Market Self-Protection

The innovative tamper protection system protects sensitive data and gives the possibility to delete the authentication keys (patented solution). Unlike the current solutions on the market, the reliability of the accelerometer based technology avoids it being outsmarted.
