RFID/NFC reader software

product image

Super-flexible software utility for desktops and kiosks – captures card/tag data from all common RFID/NFC card/tag types (including securely encoded data on DESFire & iCLASS cards).

Data can be reformatted and output as emulated key-strokes (know as 'software keyboard wedge'), logged to a file, used to launch apps, or transmitted to cloud or web services.
Compatible with virtually all PC/SC 2.01 standard readers and many more besides. Supports multiple readers simultaneously.
Includes developer features to make it easy to include Read-a-Card within new or custom apps, including: Windows messaging API and built-in web server.

Read-a-Card provides the missing link between standard PC/SC contactless smartcard readers and existing software applications.
(Smartcard readers are not ‘plug-n-play’ in the same way that many common USB peripherals are – generally Windows / Linux / MacOS systems do not make smartcard information visible natively from PC/SC smartcard readers and their drivers).
