ACR122U SDK

ACR122U /ACR122T NFC Contactless Smart Card Reader SDK

The ACR122U NFC reader is the world’s first NFC reader compliant with the CCID specification. The ACR122U and its token version, ACR122T, are designed to support not only Mifare® and ISO 14443 Type A and B cards, but also FeliCa and NFC tags.

Comprehensive SDK – ACS provides a comprehensive collection of sample codes for device and contactless card programming using the latest versions of powerful object-oriented programming languages namely, Java, Delphi 7, Visual Basic 6, Visual C++ 6, Visual C++ 2005 (x64), Visual C# 2005 and Visual Basic .Net 2005. The extensive set of development tools and reference materials in the SDK allows one to use the ACR122U/ T for RFID-based solutions, such as e-payment, access control, personal identity verification, mass transit and toll road fare collection. With this complete ACR122 NFC Card Reader Software Development Kit, users can optimize the use of ACR122U/T for their contactless and NFC applications.

Peer-to-Peer Capability – As an additional SDK feature, ACS provides users with the option to experience a simulation of a real-world NFC peer-to-peer application – Smart Poster application. Two ACR122U/T NFC readers are needed for the peer-to-peer demo since one ACR122U/T acts as the smart card poster and the other one as the NFC device. The demo shows the capability of these two devices to exchange data via the peer-to-peer operating mode.

AET62 NFC Reader with Fingerprint Sensor

ACS Smard card reader with fingerprint sensor brings to the market effortless user convenience.

Combining the core of ACS' ACR122U Near Field Communication (NFC) Reader and Authentec's swipe fingerprint sensor, the AET62 NFC Reader with Fingerprint Sensor makes integration of secure biometric authentication simple and exchange of information intuitive. With its ergonomic design, it makes fingerprint and contactless card authentication hassle-free.

AET62 elevates security and flexibility for contactless applications by:

Three-Factor-Authentication: Requiring of a user something he has (smart card), something he knows (PIN/password) and something he is (fingerprint), before enabling any transactionMatch-On-Device: Limiting fingerprint template extraction and matching to itself, preventing security attacks associated with PCsSimple Fingerprint System : Doing away with databases, servers or network connectivity. Instead, fingerprint templates are stored and encrypted in the smart card.Complete local-site authentication; Limiting required components for operation into three only (local PC/remote server applications, contactless smart cards, and the AET62). Thus, even developers without an in-depth knowledge of biometrics can integrate fingerprint authentication into smart card-based applications.Security Enhancement : Provision of an optional secure access module (SAM) and support for third-party algorithms.

ACR89U-A2 Handheld Contacless Card Reader

ACR89U-A2 is a handheld smart card reader with NFC tag support primarily designed for multi-application that can access any contact and contactless smart card following the ISO7816 and ISO14443 standards. It is a portable pinpad reader with dual contact smart card slots, contactless card reader module,  runs with 32-bit MCU,  bi-color LED, 128 x 64 hi-resolution graphical LCD,  buzzer, rechargeable battery and large programmable memory. Through these features, it enables users to perform secure smart card transactions in both in-house and field environments.

ACR89U-A2 comes from the ACR89 series which provides the unique advantage of having two modes—PC-linked and Standalone—to cater to unique user requirements. For its PC-linked mode, it connects to the PC via its USB cable; while for its Standalone mode, it uses its Lithium Ion Battery to run wirelessly. It also comes with a Serial Interface port that allows it to be connected to other peripherals. It can provide optimal solution with additional thermal printer support.

Being CCID-compliant, ACR89U-A2 has a plug-and-play solution that facilitates in its ease of use and installation. Users can also build their own standalone applications through its multi-tasking environment using Free RTOS Kernel and C-language. Firmware upgradeable, ACR89 is suitable for existing and future smart card applications.

PTR89 Portable Thermal Printer (for ACR89)

PTR89 is a portable handheld thermal printer intended for use with the ACR89 (ACR89U-A1 and ACR89U-A2). It communicates with the ACR89 to print out receipts. The PTR89 is an example of a thermal printer, which is currently in demand for different types of applications.

PTR89 peripherals include an external power adapter, a lithium-ion battery and one thermal paper roll.

To produce receipts, a roll of thermal paper is inserted into the slot between the thermal head and rubber roll. The printer sends an electric current to the heating elements of the thermal head that generates the heat. When heat is applied to the paper, the printer generates different colors for printing out text, symbols or pictures. No ink is necessary.

The printer is durable, makes less noise and is easy to use. The PTR89's high-speed printing enables quick and convenient transactions. With special features and advanced performance in one package, it is ideal for on-the go and retail applications that provide receipts for customer reference.
