Requirements to use the VingCard room key with a POS include:
VingCard Vision Version 4.1 or higher
RFID card/encoder requires VingCard Vision version 6.1 or higher
Point of sale (POS) systems with card readers capable of reading Track 2 data on magnetic cards.
In this case all room numbers in RDP must contain numeric characters only, such as 101. A room number such as A101 or 101A will not work because Track-2 cannot contain non-numeric data. Alternatively with the RDP – VingCard interface, it is possible to encode the room number on to Track 1 which accepts alpha-numeric data. If Track 1 is used, the Point-of-Sale system may need to be modified to enable it to read Track 1.
Kaba Ilco Key Lock Systems
RDP has developed an interface with Kaba Ilco key lock system.
RDP’s interface works with the following Kaba Ilco models: 700, 710, 740 760, 770, 790
The model 660 (or Oracode system) is not supported
RDP’s Kaba interface utilizes the FDU or Front Desk Unit interface system. This system requires a Gateway II interface box and works with most older Kaba systems. RDP uses this interface so that customers using FDU do not have to spend the money to upgrade to the newer interface system, ATLAS.
RDP also interfaces with the Kaba ATLAS (Advanced Technology Lodging Access System) interface based on web services. All new Kaba systems should use this interface. The Gateway II interface box is not used with this configuration.
