Proximity Readers / RFID
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.
Nearly all employees are using a laptop or tablet across all industries. This poses a challenge for IT organizations to secure the information from unauthorized access. The pcProx® Nano reader mounted in a laptop or tablet can help IT organizations protect valuable information while giving employees the ability to freely go to where the work is with the assurance of security, easy identification and simple access. Even with requirements for multiple passwords and access to various secured applications, the login process shouldnt get in the way of doing work. In time-sensitive situations, every second counts.
This badge reader incorporates all the features of the desktop and surface mount readers into an ultra-compact USB format. Its small size makes it easy for the mobile worker to do their job while complying with organizational guidelines for authentication, identification and access.
Smallest Reader Available
The latest addition to the popular pcProx® family of badge readers, the pcProx Nano reader is the smallest mobile badge reader available for identification and enrollment of proximity cards. The revolutionary small size brings significant opportunity and flexibility in terms of solution variety and integration. The small form factor does not cause interference since it tightly hugs the laptop side when inserted into the USB port.
RF IDeas products are backward compatible. The pcProx Nano reader easily integrates into existing 125 kHz proximity badge systems. The reader utilizes the existing configuration utility eliminating the need to create new applications. For partner applications that support pcProx readers, the pcProx Nano readers are easily integrated which means no additional modification or training is required.
Plug and Play Operations
Connecting directly into a laptop or tablets USB port, the reader emulates a keyboard and keystrokes the badge ID and/or site code to the cursors location on the screen. The reader can be easily configured to add keystrokes before or after the badge data. Its plug-and-play functionality requires no software for easy integration with nearly all operating systems and applications.
Many organizations have regulatory compliance requirements which must be documented. Without accurate records, an organization can be faced with large fines or worse, a costly shut-down of facilities. Supported by an extensive partner ecosystem and the backend applications, the pcProx Nano reader enables easy collection of employee information for required compliance reports. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) compliance requirements are met by providing authentication and access to laptops and tablets with a quick wave of the employee badge.
When an employee is away from the laptop, it is critical to secure the information. A pcProx Nano reader allows a user to easily access the device with a simple wave of an authorized badge. No longer does the user need cumbersome passwords. You can even program multiple access cards to authenticate a single device, for environments where a laptop is shared by several individuals.
pcProx Plus is a dual frequency programmable card reader that provides the advantages of reading both proximity and contactless smart cards in one reader. This reader allows users to leverage their employee ID badges, or any 125 kHz or 13.56 MHz tags or labels, for other forms of secure authentication and identification throughout the workplace.
This plug-n-play reader supports over 45 different card types and includes flash memory, allowing users to quickly configure the readers output to meet their needs. Its highly configurable technology allows the reader the capability of simultaneously handling any two of the available technologies proximity or contactless.
The pcProx Plus multi-technology reader delivers flexibility to any customer, integrator or end user struggling with different card technologies. Its the ideal reader for enrollment into third party software or for single sign-on integrators. As an integrated reader, it has the ability to work with a multitude of applications.
Also available, is an 82 Series reader model, which integrates into your software or hardware product through the use of the RF IDeas Universal Software Developers 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.
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.
