For smart card personalized equipments, data reading and writing is one of the core processes.
Read Smart Card Information: the reader can read the information on the smart card, know the status, type and validity of the card and so on.
Write Smart Card Information: the reader can write information on the smart card to achieve personalized custom smart card surface, text, patterns and other functions.
Communication interface: the reader can exchange data with other equipments through the communication interface, including transmitting card information and the status of the reader.
Security Authentication: the reader can pass the security authentication mechanism to ensure the security and reliability of the read and write operation.
Data Processing: the reader can read and write data processing and analysis, including data encryption, data decryption.
Read Speed: the more efficient the reader, you can complete the read Operation Faster.
Write Speed: the reader can write information faster, improve efficiency.
The Data transfer rate: readers and writers can transmit data faster and more efficiently.
Stability: can better ensure the accuracy and reliability of read and write operations.
Compatibility: the reader should be compatible with multiple smart cards to meet the needs of different customers.
There are many types of reader-writer, can be divided into contact-type readers and contactless contact-type reader-writer.
The main differences between the two include:
the contact type requires contact with the user's metal mark to complete the transaction, while the non-contact type of reader or writer can be sensed by electromagnetic waves or infrared light, etc. .
Contact readers can be used in cash payment scenarios because they need to touch metal marks, while non-contact readers can be used in various electronic payment scenarios, such as bank card payment, mobile phone payment, etc. . Because the contact reader needs to contact the metal mark, the transaction speed is slower, while the non-contact reader can realize the non-contact quick payment and improve the transaction speed.
There are some security risks in contact reader, such as IC Card can be copied easily, while non-contact reader can protect transaction security by password, fingerprint and other security measures.
In addition, the contact reader can be compatible with the electrical performance detection function. Including open short-circuit detection, leakage current detection, current pin test, pressure current and add current voltage and other functions.
A smart card company that develops readers and writers is sure to have a line of readers and writers. For example PIOTEC, At present, there are more than 10 kinds of contactless/contactless readers and writers, which can meet the needs of all kinds of smart card equipments in the market.
