Cotag Readers

 

All Cotag readers can read both active (long-range) and passive (proximity) Cotag cards and tags.

Cotag readers may be used with Siemens access control systems or with third party systems. Models for third party systems are delivered without any configuration. The onboard interface library supports popular Clock&Data and Wiegand interfaces. The interface is set using a configuration card. The distributor code/secondary code is set by presenting a Cotag card containing the valid distributor code/secondary code.
