About ACR83

ACR83 PINeasy is a USB reader featuring a keypad and a display screen. Supporting Secure PIN Entry (SPE), ACR83 limits both PIN entry and authentication within itself, thus eliminating the exposure of sensitive information to PCs or workstations, which are vulnerable to security attacks such as Trojans and USB sniffers.

Small enough to fit in the palm of a person's hand, the ACR83 PINeasy PIN Pad reader is one of the smallest in the market. Along with its size comes a simple but highly secure authentication process. One only has to connect the reader to the PC via USB port, insert a smart card into the reader, follow the command on the LCD, and enter the PIN code.

Additionally, the ACR83 PINeasy is compliant with major computing, banking and safety standards, making it a device that you can truly trust.

So waste no more time and gear up with ACS today for tomorrow’s security!

ACR83 PINeasy Smart Card Reader Software Development Kit

ACR83 PINeasy is a USB reader featuring a keypad and a display screen. Supporting Secure PIN Entry (SPE), it requires both PIN entry and authentication to be done within the device, thus eliminating the exposure of sensitive information to PC’s or workstations that are vulnerable to security attacks such as Trojans and USB sniffers.

With a size enough to fit in the palm of a person's hand, the ACR83 PINeasy is one of the smallest PIN-pad readers in the market. Along with its size comes a simple but highly secure authentication process that only requires one to connect the reader to the PC via its USB port, insert the smart card into the reader, follow the command on the LCD, and enter the PIN code.

On the other hand, the ACR83 PINeasy Software Development Kit (ACR83 SDK) enables effective development of customized applications and systems by using smart cards, card readers, and PCs. It serves as an ideal training and development tool for those who are interested in exploring smart card technologies. The SDK comes with sample codes written in different programming languages, namely Java, Visual Basic 6, Visual Basic .NET2008,Visual Basic .NET2008 (x64),Visual Basic C# .NET2008, Visual Basic C#.NET2008 (x64), Visual C++ 6, Visual C++ 2005 (x64) and Turbo Delphi. These sample codes showcase the different capabilities of the ACR83, as well as provide instructions on how to control ACR83 peripherals and communicate with ISO 7816 cards.

The development kit is now priced at only US$79.
