Bosch has extended its LECTUS secure Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) series with a new card reader and added functions. The makers say that these enable continuous encryption from controller to card.
The new LECTUS secure 1000 reader introduces a smaller form factor – mini-mullion – which has already been deployed in the LECTUS secure Wiegand series, as a more compact version. For integrators and end users, the new LECTUS secure 1000 enables a wider choice of form factors. It is also possible to mix various form factors in one system which provides a new option. For installers, handling is identical to the other readers from established series (OSDP and Wiegand).
Bosch has also added to the functions of its LECTUS secure OSDP series. The reader series now supports Bosch-coded MIFARE classic and MIFARE DESFire EV1 credentials.
The encrypted OSDPv2 protocol of this reader series delivers security for communication between controller and reader. Now, Bosch-coded MIFARE and DESFire EV1 credentials offer also security between reader and credential.
The new products also provide variety in compatible readers – previously only the LECTUS Duo series supported these credential types. Now with the inclusion of the LECTUS secure OSDP series, customers can choose between reader models, or mix them according to their specific needs.
