The ACR1252U-M2 reader is an ideal replacement for the popular ACR122U reader – it does everything that the ACR122U did, with the addition of upgradable firmware capabilities, in an identical form-factor. (Only a very few software solutions that used the original ACR122 reader’s direct command tunneling feature may need to be updated. For more information refer to https://buzz.smartcardfocus.com/acr122u-no-longer-available-best-alternative/.)
 
The ACR1252U from ACS is a 13.56 MHz USB contactless smartcard reader that supports ISO 14443 type A and B cards, MIFARE, FeliCa, and ISO 18092–compliant NFC cards and tags. Replacing the popular ACR122U, this reader provides compatibility with a wide range of cards, tags, credentials and up-to-date hardware.
 
NFC Forum certified, the ACR1252 supports all three modes of NFC with improved performance, including card reader/writer, card emulation and peer-to-peer communication.
 
The ACR1252U is CCID and PC/SC compliant, allowing interoperability with various different devices and software applications.
 
The ACR1252U is compatible with Read-a-Card, the contactless card ID reading application, useful for the integration/enrolment of RFID technology into new or existing systems.
 
An SDK is also available, as well as other model variations and OEM modules. Equivalent to ACS part ACR1252U-M1 but without the SAM slot.
