Flexible RFID and proximity solutions


The NOVA is an ideal solution for flush mount readers. It combines a base plate with integrated antenna and a COMPACT module ( refer also under ‘Modules’ for further details on COMPACT ) and is designed to fit perfectly into a standard 55 mm switchbox.
The NOVA reader is available in following versions :

  • NOVA-EM : a 125 kHz reader, supporting transponder types EM4x02 and equivalent
  • NOVA-HT : a 125 kHz reader for Hitag transponders
  • NOVA-MF : a 13,56 MHZ MIFARE UID reader
  • NOVA-LG : a 13,56 MHz Legic reader

The NOVA series of readers is available with a choice of Wiegand, Clock&Data, TTL, RS232, RS485 or customer specific interfaces.
A 3-colour LED and buzzer enhance user feedback.
Since NOVA is supplied as ‘pcb only’, this reader can be completed with a blind plate that matches the rest of the site interior. Optionally, you can order NOVA also complete with blind plate.
