Nowadays, the demand for the application of contactless technology in everyday transactions is proliferating. Public transportation, customer loyalty systems, network and physical access controls are only some of the many aspects of common life where the practical use of contactless technology has increasingly been applied. In this growing trend, ACS has become one of the trusted companies that develop and produce readers capable of recognizing and supporting all the four types of NFC tags. ACS first achieved this by introducing the ACR122U NFC Contactless Smart Card Reader, which is the world’s first CCID-compliant NFC card reader. Now, with the introduction of the ACR122S Serial NFC Reader, ACS provides more options to customers who wish to implement contactless cards for efficient and secure transactions.

Utilizing the 13.56 MHz RFID technology and compliant with the ISO/IEC 18092 NFC standard, the ACR122S is the serial interface (RS-232) extension of the ACR122 family of contactless readers/writers. It supports MiFare® and ISO 14443 Type A and B cards, as well as FeliCa and NFC tags. Further, each unit of the ACR122S features a buzzer and two LEDs to facilitate user interaction better. Its anti-collision and selective card polling capabilities ensures smooth operation despite the multiplicity of cards presented. It also secures contactless payments through its built-in SAM slot. Other standard features include a USB interface for power supply, CCID-like frame format (Binary format) and a built-in antenna that has a card reading distance of up to 50mm.

Equipped with all these features and other customizable options, the ACR122S is an ideal tool for various contactless operations.
