ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo Smart Card Reader

ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo is a sleek and stylish device that features an innovative dual smart card slot solution for cost-effective, time-efficient and secure implementation of smart card applications in fields such as e-Banking and e-Payment, e-Government, e-Healthcare, Physical and Logical Access Control, and Network Security. It supports ISO 7816 Class A smart cards, microprocessor cards with the T=0 and T=1 protocol, and most common memory cards in the market. It has USB full speed as its host interface, and a smart card R/W speed of 344 Kbps. With dimensions of 103.5 mm x 85.0 mm x 59.9 mm and capacity for at least 200,000 card insertion cycles, ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo is a highly portable and durable smart card reader.

ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo’s dual slot feature allows users to operate two full-sized smart cards at the same time, enabling efficiency and enhanced security in smart card applications. As an example, one slot can hold the smart card of an authorized personnel managing a particular smart card-based service, while the other slot can be used by various individuals availing of such service. Through ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo’s dual slot solution, the need to pull out and reinsert the personnel’s card to accommodate a user’s card, whenever one is presented, is eliminated, resulting to smoother and uninterrupted flow of transactions.

Aside from its dual slot feature, ACR33U-A1 SmartDuo also has 3 SAM (Security Access Module) card slots. This feature allows one to enhance the security provided by the device for applications requiring more stringent security mechanisms.
