Description

This plug-n-play desktop reader is capable of reading both 125 kHz proximity cards and 13.56 MHz contactless cards.

This pcProx Plus is a cutting-edge card reader that combines proximity and contactless technologies into one reader. It supports over 45 different card types and includes flash memory, allowing users to quickly configure the readers output to meet their needs. Its highly configurable technology allows the reader to simultaneously handle any two of the available technologies — proximity or contactless.

This plug-n-play desktop reader is capable of reading both 125 kHz proximity cards and 13.56 MHz contactless cards. This reader eliminates the need for manual entry and provides error-free identification and security throughout the workplace. The pcProx Plus allows users to use their building access card or any 125 kHz or 13.56 MHz tags/labels for other forms of identification.

As a card and badge enroller or reader, it emulates a keyboard to keystroke the card’s data to the cursor’s location in an application. The reader can be configured to add keystrokes and commands before or after the card’s data. The pcProx Plus reader can be used as a stand-alone unit, or can be seamlessly integrated with other software applications using the optional Software Developer’s Kit (SDK). As an integrated reader, it has the ability to work with a multitude of applications.

Key Features
