ACS Launches ACM1252U-Z6 Small NFC Reader Module

March 9, 2020

HONG KONG, 9 Mar, 2020 - Advanced Card Systems Ltd. (ACS), Asia Pacific's top supplier and one of the world's top 3 suppliers of PC-linked smart card readers (Source: Frost & Sullivan), launches the ACM1252U-Z6 Small NFC Reader Module.

The ACM1252U-Z6 shares the same core and functionality with ACM1252U-Z2 differing only on its connector type. An NFC reader module with FFC connector, consuming lesser space through its cable’s small footprint, makes it suitable for integration into smaller systems, e.g. handheld devices, tablets, and laptops. Like the ACM1252U-Z2, it is developed based on the 13.56 MHz contactless technology, supporting the three NFC modes including card reader or writer, card emulation and peer-to-peer communication, accepting not only ISO 14443 Type A and B cards, MIFARE®, FeliCa®, and ISO 18092–compliant NFC tags, but also other NFC devices, with an access speed of up to 424 Kbps and proximity operating distance of up to 30 mm (depending on tag type used).

The ACM1252U-Z6 offers post-deployment firmware upgrade eliminating the need for additional hardware modification. This PC/SC-compliant device also allows interoperability across different applications and platforms, and provides high-speed communication ability for contactless cards and NFC tags or devices.
