HID iCLASS SE® Platform



HID Global’s iCLASS SE® access control platform enables customers to future-proof their access control infrastructures while simplifying how identities are created, used and managed, across a broad continuum of application requirements using any combination of smart cards, microprocessor cards and NFC-enabled smartphones. With the iCLASS SE® access control platform, enterprises and organizations have the assurance that their investments in today’s technologies can be leveraged in the future.

iCLASS SE® readers are part of HID Global’s next generation access control platform and open ecosystem based on HID Global’s Secure Identity Object™ (SIO), a portable credential methodology and its Trusted Identity Platform™ (TIP) for advanced applications, mobility and heightened security. iCLASS SE® 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology enables a new class of portable identity credentials that can be securely provisioned and safely embedded into both fixed and mobile devices.

The readers support the ever-expanding universe of multiple credential technologies for seamless migration and are field programmable for secure upgrades and extended lifecycle.


Key Benefits:

  • Streamlined Migration – Support for 125 kHz HID Prox®, Indala®, AWID and EM4102 for seamless migration; field programmable for secure upgrades through multiCLASS SE® readers.
  • Powerfully Secure – Ensures data authenticity and privacy through the multi-layered security beyond the card technology, providing added protection to identity data using SIOs.
  • Technology-independent – Supports multiple technologies including iCLASS Seos, iCLASS SE®, standard iCLASS®, MIFARE®, and MIFARE DESFire® EV1 with custom data models.
  • Adaptable – Interoperable with a growing range of technology environments and form factors including mobile devices via Seos™.
  • Standardized Communications – Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) capable for secure, bidirectional communication.

With a focus on sustainability, iCLASS SE® readers include intelligent power management that reduces power consumption by as much as 75%. The readers are also built using recycled content, which contributes toward LEED building credits.
