Smart CardsView Product Information
Smart cards offer a high level of security and provide the advantage of being multi-purpose. They function as proximity access cards, but since they can store much more information they can also be used as cash cards at company restaurants or vending machines, for example. It is also possible to store biometric data such as fingerprint templates.
