GE Security Inc. announced the expansion of its Transition card reader series with three new Personal Identity Verification readers: the T-500-PIV, T-520-PIV and T-525-PIV. The readers are designed to help customers meet the PIV requirements mandated by HSPD-12 and enable customers to transition from their current access credential to the new PIV credential.
The new GE Security PIV readers have the ability to read multiple access credential formats. Approved by the U.S. government as FIPS 201-compliant PIV transparent readers. Like other readers in the Transition Series, these readers feature technology that adjusts to a wide range of installation mounting surfaces. They are available with or without keypads and offer mullion mount, mid-range and mid-range with keypad options. Their appearance also matches other Transition Series readers for a uniform presentation throughout the installation.
