Card Readers

Inner Range Sifer

The SIFER card reader is a Smart Card reader designed and manufactured by Inner Range. It's a multi-drop RS-485 based reader that employs 128 bit AES encryption from the card through to the door module.

SIFER readers are IP67 rated & available with site-specific encryption keys. Three card ordering options are available:

  • SIFER-P: - Pre-programmed ‘stock’ cards with card number printed. The most cost-effective option but card customisation is not supported. With more than four billion card numbers available each SIFER-P card is guaranteed to be unique.
  • SIFER-U: - User Programmable cards that allow an installer to customise the card number, site code & use their own encryption key. Printed with factory card number.
  • SIFER-C: - Custom batch orders configured by the factory according to the specified card number range, site code, encryption key & printing options. Cards cannot be re-programmed at a later stage by the installer or the factory.
