More and more companies today are using proximity cards for their access control systems and employee identification. In light of this fact, there has been a shift in accessory preferences. Though traditional badge holders and clips continue to work well for proximity cards, there are some accessories that can optimize the function of the proximity technology.
The Gripper Attachment
Why is he gripper attachment a good fit for proximity technology?
As you may know, proximity cards have an internal antenna and an electronic chip. This technology allows the cards to communicate with an eternal antenna which is in the card reader. When these components become damaged, they become less consistent or completely unusable.
One of the ways the technology can become damaged is by improper hole punching of the card. The gripper attachment eliminates the need for a hole punch by providing a gentle, yet secure way of clipping the badge to your person.
Here are the key benefits of the gripper attachment:
- Secure – The gripper attachment can support up to five pounds of vertical force and an even greater amount of horizontal force.
- Durability – Because of the materials that are used, the gripper attachment is very durable and long lasting.
- Economy – The gripper attachment is quite affordable and can be used in a variety of applications. You get a lot of bang for your buck.
- Damage Prevention – You can forget about the hole punch! The silicone material of the gripper prevents damage to the card unlike the traditional badge clip and helps to protect the technology within the card.
