RF IDeas’ pcProx card readers are designed for customers seeking to leverage their existing card system for applications beyond physical security. The pcProx USB Dongle readers are engineered to work with nearly all proximity and contactless smart card technologies. The 13.56 MHz contactless model is compatible with most 13.56 MHz cards and the 125 kHz proximity model provides error-free identification for over 300 million physical access cards 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. In most common uses, the reader emulates a keyboard and keystrokes the card’s ID and/or site code to the cursor’s location on the screen. The reader can be configured to add keystrokes before or after the card’s data.

The innovative USB Dongle card readers incorporate all the features of the larger readers into an ultra compact, cable-free format. Available in the same configurations as the full size models, the dongle adds a unique level of portability to a variety of card reading needs.
