The RFIdeas pcSwipe card reader is a cost-effective and efficient solution for customers wanting to leverage their existing base of magnetic stripe card-carrying personnel. This reader is compatible with the billions of magnetic stripe cards in circulation worldwide.
As with all RF IDeas products, pcSwipe has been designed to meet the identification and security needs of customers in many different applications and environments. In addition to solid construction and numerous flush mounting options, key features include bi-directional swiping capability and fast swipe speeds for maximum usability.
The standard USB model (Enroll) connects directly to a USB port and can send data as keystrokes or work with the optional Software Developer Kit (SDK). The RS-232 model connects to a standard serial PC COM port and sends data as ASCII. The CDC model emulates a virtual serial device.
Free software allows customers to configure their pcSwipe as needed. Options include the ability to read data from any data track locations on the card and custom programmability, allowing for keystrokes to be added before and after the card’s data. The plug-n-play functionality of the pcSwipe makes it an easy addition to your network, seamlessly integrating with existing infrastructure.
