The CR1 Census® reader comprises a single loop aerial and reader electronics that are compatible with all Census® tags. The radio-frequency communications are scrambled.

The unit is supplied with an internal aerial that provides a maximum detection zone of 1.2 metres radius when used with standard TC1 Census® tags. The detection zone may be increased by the use of an external aerial. A reading range of up to 3.0 metres is possible using a 2 metre square external antenna (See Census® Product Matrix for further information).
All CR1 readers provide Wiegand or Clock & Data, as well as RS232 output. Advanced features include local alarm outputs, a print option and an optional counter display (See IDN1, EDN1 for further information). MatchMaker reader firmware enables tag pairing.
