HID® OMNIKEY® 5127CK CCID & Keyboard Wedge Reader Board

CCID and Keyboard Wedge reader board that supports both 13.56 MHz and 125kHz credentials
HID OMNIKEY 5127CK CCID & Keyboard Wedge Reader

Chip Card Interface Device (CCID) support enables integrators to design finished readers without the need to install or maintain drivers, eliminating complex software lifecycle management issues in the field and accelerating the time to market of finished devices. These devices are commonly used in printers, copiers, vending machines and access control systems.

With the keyboard wedge functionality, end-users of OMNIKEY 5127CK readers can retrieve data from a card that is presented to the reader and directly input the card data into an application using keystroke emulation. This eliminates the need for customers to manually enter the card data into an application.

Supporting low and high frequency within a single product, the OMNIKEY 5127CK enables seamless migration in mixed technology scenarios.
