ACR39U-N1 is no larger than a USB stick, but is able to support full-sized contact smart cards with a simple swivel motion. Its USB Type A connector is a widely held standard that ensures compatibility with most devices. The reader is PC/SC and CCID-compliant.
ACR39U-N1 Pocketmate II is a plug and play reader which is easily integrated into different operating systems such as Windows®, Linux® and Mac OS®. In addition, it may be used on mobile devices running on Android™ versions 3.1 and later.
“ACR39U-N1 accommodates many devices nowadays which stick to the standard USB Type A connector,” says Gilbert Leung, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing Communications. “This wide-ranging support is combined with the powerful ACR39 core, which provides high performance for demanding solutions such as the PIV (Personal Identity Verification) card of the United States Federal government, access control, online banking, and so forth.”
