pcProx® Plus SP


The pcProx® Plus SP is an ultra-slim, multi-purpose card reader for identification, authentication and logical access.  The small, thin form factor enables various embedded and integrated applications or OEM installations in recessed compartments, as well as external mounting configurations.  Additionally, the pcProx Plus SP is compatible with a variety of purpose-built devices such as time clocks, kiosks or protective enclosures. 

The pcProx Plus SP is dual-frequency providing the advantages of reading both proximity and contactless smart cards in one reader.  The reader allows users to leverage their employee ID badges, or any 125 kHz or 13.56 MHz tags or fobs, for secure authentication and identification throughout the workplace. Versatile and scalable, the pcProx Plus SP is a future proof investment with its SIM card slot for optional expansion with additional secure card types.

As one of the most flexible, robust readers available today, the pcProx Plus SP is provided standard with four card configurations (two are pre-set; two are user definable) enabling an IT or security department to seamlessly integrate additional card types. With flash memory and supporting nearly all card types, the programmable pcProx Plus SP allows users to quickly configure the readers output to meet their needs.  This multi-technology reader delivers flexibility to any customer, integrator or end user managing their different card technologies. It’s ideal for enrollment into third party software, for single sign-on integrators and others. 

Application Integration

For application integration, the pcProx Plus SP is also available as a non-keystroking reader which integrates with partner or end-user software through the use of the RF IDeas Universal Software Developer’s Kit (SDK). Raw card ID data is seamlessly passed to the application enabling nearly limitless possibilities for user identification, authentication and reporting purposes.

Secure Print

Due to its ultra-slim, multi-purpose form factor, the pcProx Plus SP is the reader of choice to secure access to multi-function printers (MFP) and network connected copiers. MFPs are vulnerable to external security attacks but when used with secure print management software, enterprises can easily manage sensitive data and track employee usage. As the front end of a secure print solution, the pcProx Plus SP dual frequency reader is easy to deploy and opens the door to better, more secure print management.

Installation Alternatives

Its unique physical design makes it suitable for other applications where access control and authentication are required.  The reader is suitable to embed or integrate in kiosks, displays, enclosures, monitors, or workstations.  Its compact size is suitable for external mount or easily installs in recessed pockets on printers, other business or industrial devices where authentication and access control may be required.
