ACR1281S-C1 DualBoost II is a dual interface reader that can access any contact and contactless smart cards following the ISO 7816 and ISO 14443 standards. ACR1281S-C1 DualBoost II integrates conventionally separate and independent applications for contact and contactless technologies into one device and one card. It can be used for banking or e-commerce to settle payments or other transactions securely using credit cards. It can also be used to verify contactless cards to provide access to specific areas or workstations. It is the perfect complement to the all-in-one card concept that combines many kinds of smart card applications into just a single card. Its RS232 serial interface can accommodate more devices, such as POS terminals and vending machines, which have different serial ports.
The ACR1281S-C1 is a plug-and-play device that does not require any driver installation. It comes with a built-in SAM slot for added security in both contact and contactless applications. Lastly, the ACR1281S-C1 makes use of high-speed communication for contactless cards at a maximum of 848 kbps, which makes it suitable for highly demanding applications.
With additional features such as USB firmware upgradability, contact memory card support and extended APDU support, ACR1281S-C1 Serial DualBoost II is a highly cost-effective, powerful, all-in-one device that offers convenience and flexibility to many smart card applications.
