ARCS-C/BT - 13.56 MHz DESFire® EV2 & EV3 + Bluetooth® touch screen/keypad reader

ARCS-C/BT - 13.56 MHz DESFire® EV2 & EV3 + Bluetooth® touch screen/keypad reader

The ARCS-C/BT is a secure reader combining RFID / Bluetooth® (Low Energy) technologies with a color touch screen to display a keypad and/or additional information. Compliant with existing access control systems, the Architect® Blue reader identifies mobile phones thanks to many Prox or handsfree identification modes. It can work alongside or replace traditional RFID access cards. It integrates an EAL5+ crypto processor to improve data protection and privacy.

Both reader and keypad, the ARCS-C/BT allows a dual-identification by combining card and/or PIN code.

Thanks to its various operating modes (card OR key or card THEN key), you can use the keypad to identify people or to activate additional functions (activation of the intrusion alarm…).

You can combined information (logo, instructions, images…) and keypad display with a simple touch on the screen.

Welcome to high security

Logos representing the high security of the ARCS-C/BT by STid Industry

STid is the first RFID manufacturer to have received First Level Security Certification (CSPN). It’s a recognition of our unique know-how, the technological and security expertise that are implemented in your access architecture, whether new or existing.

The Architect® Blue reader uses the latest MIFARE® contactless chip technologies with new data security mechanisms.

All public encryption algorithms can be used (3DES, AES, RSA, SHA, etc.), which are recommended by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI).

The Architect® Blue series uses an EAL5+ cryptoprocessor to improve protection and privacy.

"Scramble Pad" function for more security

Icon for the scramble pad of the ARCS-C/BT

The scramble pad mode enhances the security of your access control system and prevents stolen access codes because numbers are randomly scrambled on the display.

End-to-end security control

With top-level security certification (CSPN) from the French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (ANSSI), STid secures and protects your data.

In addition to an integrated cross-level quality process within the company, we have implemented a constant auditing procedure with a number of external security audits (PHONESEC).

logo sia osdp

Readers are compatible with the SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol - OSDP™ V1 & V2.

logo sscp

Readers are compatible with the latest generation of open protocol SSCP (STid Secure Common Protocol). This protocol recommended by ANSSI uses data encryption (AES) and two-way “reader-controller” authentication to ensure security before any communication is allowed between the reader and the management system.

Best market self-protection

The innovative tamper protection system protects sensitive data and gives the possibility to delete the authentication keys (patented solution). Unlike the current solutions on the market, the reliability of the accelerometer based technology avoids it being outsmarted.
