The ACR123U is the USB version of the cost-effective, flexible, and intelligent contactless reader ACR123S. It can be integrated to existing POS (Point-of-Sale) terminals or cash registers to offer the convenience of a cashless payment system. Developed based on the 13.56 MHz contactless RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, it supports any contactless card following the ISO 14443-4 standard.
Similar with its serial predecessor, the ACR123U is equipped with a large graphical LCD screen that lets merchants display messages, as well as a large tapping area with backlight which
guides customers in carrying out their payment transactions. ACR123U has a built-in ISO 7816– compliant SAM (Secure Access Module) slot which can be used together with a SAM card.
The ACR123U is compliant with major payment and safety standards such as MasterCard®, Visa®, American Express®, and EMVTM Levels 1 and 2 (Contactless), making it compatible with EMV-based contactless payment applications such as MasterCard® PayPassTM, Visa payWave®, and American Express® ExpressPay. The ACR123U is also Apple PayTM ready.
Using either the serial or USB version of the ACR123, movement in checkout counters is faster as customers complete their payment by simply tapping their cards. This presents an opportunity to revolutionize shopping experience in a faster and convenient payment world.
