The IB928 is a factory-encoded active card that includes a lithium battery which enables it to provide hands-free functionality when it is used together with Cotag hands-free readers. For example, the combination of the IB928 card and the HF500-Cotag reader results in a reading range of approximately 102 cm. The reading range when the IB928 is used in combination with Cotag proximity readers varies from approximately 12 to 32 cm. IB928 cards are particularly useful in environments where some cardholders are disabled or often have their hands full (i.e. a hospital or warehouse).
