rf IDEAS® Configuration Utility

The rf IDEAS Configuration Utility provides the ability to configure WAVE ID readers to meet your specific needs, establishing the desired credential data output and access privileges for cardholders who will be using the reader.

In contrast to the using the pcSwipe™ reader for enrollment, which allows only configuration to be programmed into the reader, the rf IDEAS Configuration Utility allows creation of two separate configurations for users.


Card Analyzer for WAVE ID® Plus

The software-based card analyzer is now available as part of the rf IDEAS Configuration Utility, version 5.2.4. and later. Using WAVE ID Plus readers (RDR-80081AKU or RDR-80581AKU), the card analyzer feature is a quick, easy way to identify card type, analyze card data and configure the reader to align to card type.

With a single tool and a few easy steps, you can:

  • LEARN: Determine the badge (card) technology used and instantly display all compatible rf IDEAS® readers for that badge (card) type.
  • CONFIGURE: Easily configure the reader with a click of a button.
  • ANALYZE: Analyze the badge data (ID, FAC, bits, etc.) when more information is needed.

Settings are written to the reader, and the configuration can be saved for cloning of additional readers.

The WAVE ID Plus Card Analyzer supports more than 45 different badge (card) types.
