The highest security levels

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.

The SPECTRE reader provides proven security levels and allows users to sign UHF credentials using encryption methods recognized by official data security agencies (such as the French national agency ANSSI). The signed EPC mode allows for faster identification and anti-cloning protection of UHF IDs while providing excellent reading performance.

Reader are compatible with the communication protocol SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol - OSDP™ V1 and V2.

logo of sscp for SPECTRE by STid Security

Readers are compatible with the latest generation of open protocol SSCP® (Secure Smart Communication 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.

Easy integration

SPECTRE is compatible with standard communication interfaces ensuring a transparent integration in any type of access control system, new or existing. 
It supports many communication interfaces such as Wiegand, Data/Clock, as well as serial RS232 and RS485 connections.
For more fluidity, the reader can be controlled by ground loop or presence detector.

Scheme of the integration of SPECTRE


Simplified scalable installation

Up to 4 antennas can be connected to the SPECTRE reader to cover all security issues and all configurations. Designed to be fully scalable and modular, it allows to manage up to 4 access lanes for a mixed fleet of vehicles (light, heavy, motorcycles...), whether identification on wide lanes or even distinct access control for 4 lanes of vehicles.

*Caution: information about the distance of communication: measured from the centre of the antenna, depending on the type of identifier, size of the identifier, operating environment of the reader, power supply voltage. RFID tag performance is influenced by its position on the windscreen, and depends on the windscreen type. The heat-reflective (or climate comfort) windscreens have a metallic film that blocks radio waves. Performances can be impaired. Use the non-treated area of the windscreen.
