Grabba HID iClass SE® Reader is available for both high and low frequency credentials including iCLASS Seos™, iCLASS SE®, standard iCLASS®, HID Prox, Indala Prox, Feli-Ca™ MIFARE® Classic and MIFARE DESFire® EV1. HID iClass SE® is commonly used on Membership Applications, Asset Tracking, Logistics, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, Transport and Event Ticketing.

Grabba is a member of the genuine Silver HID Physical Access Program.

The Grabba innovative and configurable design allows the user to select not only the correct RFID reader, but also up to five other technologies to include in the one Grabba unit, so as to precisely and cost-effectively meet the needs of the use case. Those other technologies include Barcode scanners, MRZ (passport) readers, Fingerprint readers, Contact Smartcard readers and Magnetic Stripe readers.

Another advantage of the unique Grabba design is that it allows Grabba units to be simply upgraded to work with later model smartphones and to add other technologies without the need to purchase new Grabba units. This substantially reduces the Total Cost of Ownership of Grabba units.


Dual Technology– LF and HF
It can read and write to 125 KHz for Low Frequency and to 13,56 MHz for High Frequency tokens, cards and tags.

Secure – Inbuilt Data Encryption
RF data encryption and mutual authentication using 64-bit keys for each application area. Provides multi-layer security that extends beyond the card technology for additional protection to identity data. Our hardware is EAL5+ Certified Secure Element Hardware, which provides tamper-proof protection of keys/cryptographic operations.

Powerful – Versatile commands
Reads and writes securely to any application area on iCLASS-SE® credentials using the Grabba SDK. Allows straightforward migration by supporting low and high frequency credentials, including iCLASS Seos™, iCLASS SE®, standard iCLASS®, HID Prox, Indala Prox, MIFARE® Classic and MIFARE DESFire® EV1.
