The ultra-compact pcProx 13.56 MHz Nano contactless smart card reader, along with the 125 kHz proximity mobile reader, provides the mobile worker with the assurance of security, ease of identification, and simple access to their USB laptops or tablets. The compact form factor of the pcProx Nano makes it a popular choice for embedded applications (housings, keyboards, control panels) to minimize pieces of hardware.
The pcProx 13.56 MHz Nano is available in the popular vertical form factor. The pcProx 125 kHz Nano is available in either vertical or horizontal form factors. The revolutionary small size brings significant opportunity and flexibility in terms of solution variety and integration. Backward compatibility ensures simple integration into organizations with existing badge systems. (For more information, please contact your Regional Sales Manager.

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.

When readers are used as part of an access control application, compliance requirements for privacy and secured access are easily met. Readers enable easy collection of employee information for required compliance reports. Often used as part of a HIPAA compliant solution, the pcProx is used as a log-on reader. In law enforcement and criminal justice organizations, solutions incorporating pcProx readers help control access to various databases that only authorized personnel are permitted to view. In the food processing industry, risk assessment and risk management are two of the key elements of an overall risk management process as discussed by the FDA's Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) management system. Nearly any industry where access control and compliance are critical elements of daily operations are applicable for badge reader solutions.
