New to the pcProx line of badge readers is the pcProx Nano, a convenient 125 kHz proximity mobile reader, designed for the worker on-the-go! Now employees can freely go to where the work is with the assurance of security, ease of identification, and simple access to their laptops. Backward compatibility ensures simple integration into organizations with existing badge systems. (Shipments for the pcProx Nano begin in mid-May. For more information, please contact your Reqional Sales Manager. Find out who the sales manager is in your region here.)
RF IDeas’ pcProx Enroll card readers are designed for customers seeking to leverage their existing card system for applications beyond building access. These readers are engineered and designed to work with nearly all proximity and contactless smart card technologies. The 13.56 MHz model is compatible with most contactless smart cards and the 125 kHz proximity model provides error-free identification for over 300 million physical access cards in use worldwide.
Featuring plug-n-play functionality, no required software, and embedded configurable flash memory, these readers are ready to integrate with nearly all operating systems, applications, and embedded controllers.
The pcProx 82 Series reader integrates into your software or hardware product through the use of the RF IDeas Universal Software Developer’s Kit (SDK). In contrast to the Enroll readers, the 82 Series use a callable DLL or other direct integration methods rather than keystroking (emulating a keyboard device). These low cost readers deliver the card ID in a format that applications recognize, offering nearly limitless possibilities for user identification and authentication.
