KEY FEATURES : Contactless smartcards are increasingly present in today’s end user daily activities, and not limited to corporate offices. Along with its attractive look & feel and its USB interface for fast data transfer, Prox’N’Roll is robust and adapts to a variety of situations. A high performance technology: Prox’N’Roll supports USB 2.0 full speed (12Mbps), and fastest smartcard baud rate (848kbps). More over, this high range contactless reader is made in FRANCE.
PC/SC MODE : Prox’N’Roll PC/SC is supported by major operating systems. This standardized smartcard reader API allows developers to work with contactless cards (including Mifare and other wired-logic chips) as easily as if they were classical T=0 or T=1 contact cards.
LEGACY MODE : Once configured for legacy mode, Prox’N’Roll is 100% compliant with earlier SpringCard products, such as popular the popular CSB4 Mifare reader/writer. A smooth migration is possible without changing anything in existing software.
SUPPORTED CONTACTLESS SMARTCARDS : Prox’N’Roll is compliant with ISO/IEC 15693 and 14443 (A and B) standards. List of supported chips includes: NXP (Philips) : ICODE1, ICODE-SLI, Mifare Classic and UltraLight, Desfire, ProX, SmartMX, Texas Instrument : TagIT, ST MicroElectronics : SR176, SRiX, etc ASK CTS256B and CTS512B, HID iClass and Inside PicoTag, MultOS or JavaCard T=CL cards, Calypso transportation cards, NFC mobile phones or other NFC-capable objects (tag emulation mode).
