IDTronic Intros Compact Desktop RFID Reader for Access Control, Time Attendance, Membership Registration

IDTronic has announced its new Desktop Reader NEO. The reader comes with a USB 2.0 interface, the company reports. It can be easily connected to any network and may be used with the most common chip types available on the fitness market.

The Desktop Reader NEO is a plug-and-play device that is compatible with Microsoft Windows, Linux and Android operating systems. Both its power supply and data transmission are provided via the USB interface.

IDTronic's Desktop Reader NEO
The reader comes with a black and silver housing, the firm reports, making it suitable for workplaces and counters. It can be instantly connected to a computer, laptop or other USB port-equipped device, and may be used for such applications as time attendance, access control, cashless payments and membership registration. For the reading of transponders (for example, smart cards, key fobs and RFID wristbands), it only needs the transponder to be placed on the device. An integrated two-color LED displays both the reading process and the successful transaction.

Due to its integrated keyboard emulation, the information from the transponder is transmitted to the computer as though it were entered via the keyboard. Thus, data may be easily presented and evaluated. The Desktop Reader NEO with an USB interface, an integrated antenna and keyboard emulation is now available to order from IDTronic.
