Product description

Following the successful market launch of the SIMATIC RF1060R Access Control Reader , the SIMATIC RF1070R reader is now being introduced to the market.
This reader operates on the basis of proven standards ISO 14443 A/B and ISO 15693 , as well as on Legic Prime and Legic Advant.


With the SIMATIC RF1060R and RF1070R readers, Siemens provides an RFID-based solution which enables simple and versatile implementation of electronic authorization management.

The market is also increasingly demanding solutions with which access to equipment and machinery can be regulated with these ID cards – replacing the currently widespread island solutions.

Existing employee ID cards provide the basis for identification,
which increases user friendliness and minimizes costs.
