A smart keyboard emulation tool

The keyboard interface functionality enables users to retrieve credential data (from cards, key holders, wristbands, etc.) and to transfer it to any application by emulating the key sequence. It avoids manual entry of the data on the card in an application.

The data structures and output formats can be entirely configured: keyboard layout (AZERTY by default), keys, timing, etc.

   Icon for the ease of integration of the ARCS-H/BT by STid Industry

Easy integration

The WEDGE reader is independent from the application and the operating system and does not require any drivers or third-party software to be installed, guaranteeing optimal operation in any computing environment.

Welcome to high security

Logos representing the high security of the ARCS-G/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.

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).
