The pcProx Read/Write Contactless Software Developer Kit (SDK) allows independent developers to give their application the ability to read and write information directly to contactless smart cards. It offers the following:
Complete command support for all contactless smart cards. All reader functions are controlled by the SDK via a USB or serial port
USB, RS-232, and Ethernet support. Supporting both ports through an easy-to-use DLL interface or .NET. The USB reader requires an operating system complete with drivers that support USB devices
The SDK is full-featured and easy to integrate. The Kit fully supports the USB or RS-232 desktop read/write reader with software examples in C++, and Visual Basic. All platforms and card formats are supported.
Security: Create an application logon option or a full-featured desktop security application based on a platform of readers
Identification: Identify users for productivity or QA in manufacturing environments
Human resource kiosks: Speed up the human resource process through use of facility access cards
Vending applications: Use existing proximity cards for cafeteria applications such as cashless vending or point-of-sale cafeteria systems
Asset tracking: Identify where key assets are located, lower deployments, and increase utilization
The pcProx Writer comes in models for either the USB or RS-232 port. The reader/writer allows developers complete access to HID's iCLASS or NXP's MIFARE contactless read/write cards. High-level routines allow developers to immediately begin support the iCLASS/MIFARE product lines.
Using the comprehensive SDK, software developers give their application the ability to read or write to any iCLASS/MIFARE contactless card. Independent applications include IT security, cashless vending, medical record storage, access control, biometrics, enrollment readers, card verification, single sign-on, employee identification and tracking, time and attendance, and more. The SDK comes complete with source code examples in C++ , VB and API support for .NET.
