USB-PEN : multi-ISO USB pen reader


USB stickThe new multi-functional USB pen reader from ProxTech International is a useful alternative for standard desktop readers. Easy to pack and carry around – it’s all in a single USB stick – this new USB pen reader provides all the intelligence and control functions to support the most common ISO14443A/B, ISO15693 and NFC transponders, including MIFARE (Classic, Ultralight, DESFire, Plus), Legic prime & advant, NFC, HID iClass, Sony Felica and many more.


PREMIUM-V : designed for vehicle mounting


premium5ProxTech has expanded its PREMIUM reader series with a modified version especially designed for vehicle mounting. This new PREMIUM-V version, available for 125 kHz EM (PREMIUM-V-EM) or 13.56 MHz MIFARE (PREMIUM-V-MF), offers some extra data control features to make sure the outputted data has no interference at all of any motor or electrical sourced signals.

Furthermore the new version has some additional options for user feedback, such as the possibility to connect an external buzzer for use in loud environments (vans, trolleys, fork lift, …).


COMPACT-DES : the new MIFARE module


COMPACT-DES moduleCOMPACT-DES is the latest module of the wide range of RFID modules of ProxTech International.

This new module for 13.56 MHz MIFARE applications supports not only the standard MIFARE Classic tags, but also MIFARE DESFire EV1, Ultralight, PLUS S/X and NFC. This enlarges greatly the application domains for the COMPACT modules as DESFire is mainly used in the public transportation ticketing systems. The higher security standard makes this technology fit for contactless payment.

During development, special attention was given to its compact dimensions and technical flexibility so that the COMPACT-DES module can easily be fitted in various application. It offers amongst others a 3.3 to 5Vdc voltage, a wide range of supported transponder technologies and for custom-specific solutions even 4 I/O ports are available.


FLEX and FLEX_App now with added features


FLEX pcbProxTech’s FLEX and FLEX_App module series, standard based on the LEGIC advant 4200 chipset, are completed with extra versions around the SM-4200M or SM-4500 & SM-4500M reader chipsets, offering many additional features. ProxTech’s FLEX and FLEX_App modules can now be exactly tailored to your needs.

The new module with the SM-4200M from LEGIC allows full access on the Mifare Classic transponder. This is signaled by the additional “M” in the product reference.

The SM-4500 & SM-4500M versions have even more added features to the SM-4200M. These versions offer a personalization function (“master token”). This function hands the user the full management of his identification tag by offering control over the segments on the tag, allowing the easy integration of his available applications.

Of course, these new versions of the FLEX and FLEX_App modules are fully pin-compatible to the original version so that easy upgrade from existing SM-4200 applications to SM-4500 or SM-4500M reader chipsets are possible.
