Wiegand still a relevant card technology, says Databac

Wiegand Wire is a secure technology that remains relevant for today’s market, according to ID specialist Databac Group (www.databac.com). The card manufacturer announces that it will continue to produce cards incorporating Wiegand technology for as long as there is market demand. Despite HID discontinuing its Wiegand card and reader range as of last month, Databac will support those wishing to retain their investment in the technology.

Databac manufactures standard 26-bit Wiegand cards and all other formats up to 40-bits (Wiegand/RFID and Wiegand/magstripe). In addition, it can provide dual technology readers which can work with the majority of Wiegand systems. Cards can be pre-printed in the factory or personalised through Databac’s bureau service. Cross-reference lists can be supplied depending on requirements, to compare the Wiegand code against the printed card number. 

Databac Group managing director Charles Balcomb said: “Databac was one of the first manufacturers of Wiegand cards in Europe, under licence from Sensor Engineering. Today, it continues to be a truly great technology, particularly for railways, power stations and areas with strong magnetic forces, being made of a special alloy that is not affected by magnetic fields. The cards are very durable, with the codes buried deep within the plastic, while the readers are waterproof. Many of our clients use Wiegand and we are happy to continue to support it.”

Wiegand is a highly-secure technology that uses code strips containing a series of wires. The location of the wire in the strip determines whether the output signal is read as a 'one' or a 'zero' in the binary code. Code strips are factory encoded and buried within the card, making duplication or counterfeit virtually impossible. Attempts to reach the wires will destroy the card and impair the unique pulse-generating properties of the wire.
