738-52 MIFARE® Reader with Keyboard Wedge USB

The 738-52 Proximity Card Reader is specially designed for the operation in a PC environment. It is suitable for reading the UID-Code from MIFARE® passive transponders. Their internal code can be used directly in whatever software application without any need for software modification, since it is entered at the Curser Position. Like this typing errors can be avoided and the card number does not need to be printed on the outside anymore.

The 738-52 has got a keyboard emulation and can be plugged in directly into a USB Port without installation of any hardware drivers. It acts as a Human Interface Device (HID). No external power supply required.
