I would like to know how to buy a compatible USB HF RFID reader for our purpose and what to look for. I have bought a cheap one to test, and it did not do anything with my card, despite using the same ISO 14443A standard as it does (it did read a Mifare Classic EV1 card). Our application uses a MasterCard contactless debit/credit card as the ID card, which we will use for our internal systems. This card works well on our printer, which uses a Ysoft USB reader. My phone tells me the following information about the card. I’ve tried to pick what seems relevant, but there is more: -IC manufacturer: Infineon technologies; AG -IC type: unknown; ISO/IEC 14443-4; Card OS type: Gemalto TOP; Application information: Global Platform card present, Proximity Payment System Environment (PPSE) present, MasterCard card; ATS historical bytes details: ISO/IEC 7816-4 coding.

I would suggest you contact FEIG Electronics, SecuraKey or any other reputable HF reader company. Give them the specifications you provided above and ask if they have a USB HF reader that would communicate with your specific transponder. They will be familiar with most of the different transponders on the market and the protocols they use, so they will be able to tell you for certain if they have something that can read the model you want to use.
