ARC1S/BT - Bluetooth® + 13.56 MHz DESFire® EV2 mullion 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). It uses an EAL5+ crypto processor to improve data protection and privacy



The Architect® Blue series uses an EAL5+ 

cryptoprocessor to improve protection and privacy.


Ensure Secure Migration

The multi-technology Architect® One Blue range makes it easy to manage extensions, upgrades and technology migrations.

Readers can read:

• NXP  MIFARE®  credentials  (Classic  &  Classic  EV1, Ultralight®  &  Ultralight®  C,  Plus®  &

   Plus® EV1, DESFire® 256, EV1 & EV2),

• French Ministry cards (“Carte AGENT”, CIMS), civil aviation (STITCH),

• CPS3 (IAS protocol) health cards,

• Smartphones compatible with Bluetooth® and NFC (HCE) technologies.


Create Your Own Scalable Configuration

STid allows you to upgrade the functionalities and security levels of all your readers. The modularity concept allows you to implement new functions: keyboard, touch screen or biometric fingerprint sensor and/or add a 125 kHz module for your technological migrations.

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.

Standing The Test Of Time

The reader’s IK10 certified vandal-proof structure has been optimized to resist knocks and malicious acts. It is designed to withstand harsh environments (IP65 level excluding connectivity): dust, heavy rain, frost, etc.

Easy to Install

The Architect® One Blue is a mullion RFID reader specially designed for installation in small spaces, for example on door frames or narrow flushbox mounting.

Its small size and intelligent design make it easy to incorporate into any installation environment with no spacer required (included on metal).

The plug-in/plug-out connector cable and the round mounting holes make the installation easier.
