In stock

SKU: aptiQ-MTMS15 Categories: ,


The aptiQ MTMS15 Multi-Technology Magnetic Stripe Reader offers the ultimate in flexibility.  From magnetic stripe, to proximity technology, to aptiQ™ smart credentials (MIFARE® and MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 technology), aptiQ™ readers are capable of interfacing with nearly any credential type.  Our readers use an open architecture platform designed to work with industry standards and common access control system interfaces.

It is a common misconception that migrating from mag stripe to proximity technology or onward to smart cards is a laborious task requiring a high initial investment.  aptiQ Multi-Technology readers make these transitions easy and affordable.  The ability of aptiQ readers to read both proximity and smart credentials means that you can spread out your investment over time, liberating your budget for your other business needs.

The attractive, modern design and technological capabilities of the MTMS15 are only enhanced by the fact that the reader is so easy to install.  The single gang styling and easy-to-connect wiring harness makes the wall-mounting process simple.  No more juggling between the reader and wiring during installation–simply connect the wiring harness and plug the reader in, it’s that easy.

Similar to all aptiQ™ Readers, the MTMS15 operates on a Wiegand interface, and is completely ISO compliant (14443A, 14443B, 15693).
