1 min. readlast update: 04.20.2020

Typical read range is 1–4 inches; however, this can vary based on how the card was manufactured and how the reader is mounted. Typically a low frequency, 125 kHz card, will have a shorter read range then a high frequency, 13.56 MHz card. Additionally, the range between different form factors like fobs, stick on tags, and cards can vary.
