ACR83 PINeasy Smart Card Reader

Introduction

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 PIN Pad reader 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.

Additionally, the ACR83 PINeasy is compliant with major computing, banking and safety standards such as Microsoft WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs), PC/SC, EMVCo Terminal Level 1, CE and FCC, making it a device that you can truly trust.

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