The VTAP100 PRO from Dot Origin is a contactless reader for mobile phone passes, as well as popular RFID cards and tags. The VTAP100 PRO retrieves NFC wallet passes from iPhone and Android devices with a simple tap, then decrypts and transfers pass data to other local or remote systems, via USB, Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi. You can use the VTAP Cloud online service to configure the VTAP100 PRO reader and route tap data to another system in real time, such as a membership, loyalty or ticketing platform. Stand-alone or hybrid connectivity options also possible.

The VTAP100 reader can be used in many environments, including retail loyalty, cashless payment, gym check-in, and sports ticketing. The VTAP100 remains logically separate from any payment mechanism. This simplifies data and security considerations, and the human interaction. It does not support EMV payments, but can be used for stored value and points redemption applications.

VTAP100 has been designed to support a smooth transition from plastic to mobile NFC passes so, alongside mobile passes, the VTAP100 will also read popular contactless RFID or NFC smartcards and tags, to support mixed-use applications. It is fully certified by both Apple and Google to work with their respective VAS and Smart Tap protocols, supporting automatic pass selection on iOS, as well as on-board decryption.

A USB connection from any PC is used to configure the VTAP100, by editing simple text files. Keys can be easily updated but cannot be extracted from the device. The configuration can be locked, so that the device is password protected or read-only in general use.

Any VTAP100 can output pass data over USB in the same way as a mag-stripe, barcode or QR code scanner. This can be via a keyboard emulation or over a serial interface, which makes it possible to add the VTAP100 to existing systems without software changes, to update an established card or ticket experience, to one where passes are wholly electronic. What makes the VTAP100 PRO particularly powerful is that this reader additionally connects to local power and a Wi-Fi network. The VTAP100 PRO is able to send tap data to the VTAP Cloud platform, which routes the data to the chosen third-party system in real time. Responses can also be routed back to the reader, to control LEDs, buzzer and the optional expansion I/O box, for access control applications.

The VTAP100-PRO is supplied in a compact desktop case with a captive USB cable. We can supply customised front labels for a small additional fee, typically for orders of 100 or more units.

Let us know with your order (in the Special Instructions box) whether you need this reader for use in Local mode or Cloud mode.

This is all you need to get started with mobile NFC pass reading, as it includes access to create demonstration mobile passes, so that you can test your application. For production purposes you will need to use a third-party pass provider, or integrate directly with Apple and Google.

Includes a free license for Dot Origin's popular Read-a-Card software - ideal for customers wanting to integrate with web or desktop applications without using keyboard emulation.

Other versions of VTAP100 are available, for example the VTAP100-PAC-W has a Wiegand interface for access control and turnstiles, and the VTAP100-OEM is a pre-certified PCB module available to integrators, providing both USB and RS-232 serial connectivity. Please contact us to discuss availability of these options.
