The Sirius F80 and F80P are card readers that are specifically designed to be used with Fore! security management software. The Sirius F80 and F80P card readers can read MIFARE Classic and DESFire EV1 access cards that use a Fore! encoding and the UID (or CSN) of Mifare and DESFire cards without a Fore! encoding. The Sirius F80P is equipped with a pinpad.


Choose a location for the card reader that meets the following constraints:

  • The distance between the card reader and the Polyx NF+ door controller is less then 120 meter.
  • There is at least 20cm space between two card readers.
