ACS Launches ACM1252U-Z2 Small NFC Reader Module

HONG KONG, 23 December 2016 - Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Card Systems Holdings Ltd., SEHK: 2086), Asia Pacific's top supplier and one of the world's top 3 suppliers of PC-linked smart card readers (Source: Frost & Sullivan), has launched ACM1252U-Z2 Small NFC Reader Module, a very compact contactless module designed for integration into embedded systems.

By design, ACM1252U-Z2 is suitable for integration into notably smaller systems, e.g. laptop and tablet. Thus, it lends itself well to customization and as part of ultra-portable solutions.

ACM1252U-Z2 is based on 13.56 MHz contactless technology. It supports ISO 14443 Type A and B cards, MIFARE®, FeliCa, ISO 18092-compliant NFC tags, and other NFC devices. It supports the following OS: Windows®, Linux®, MAC OS® and Android™. It is PC/SC and CCID-compliant. A micro USB cable and bi-color LED make the device more user-friendly. It is also firmware-upgradeable.

ACM1252U-Z2 is compliant and certified with major international standards, including: Microsoft® WHQL, FCC, CE and RoHS2.

“ACM1252U-Z2 is a timely addition to ACS’s portfolio of contactless reader modules,” says Gilbert Leung, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing. “It is a well-designed, fast solution for providers of embedded systems.”
