Which card readers are best suited to use HID iCLASS cards with Kofax MFDP systems such as Equitrac, Copitrak, etc.?
- For Equitrac Embedded systems that use Equitrac ID card readers (USB type), the recommended card reader is the CRU0MC02 (Multi-card reader with full iCLASS decoding). The part number on the bottom of the card reader is Y591-EMSI-202. To return the iCLASS card number, the card reader must be loaded with the appropriate configuration, such as the "13MHz Card / iCLASS / Printed Number [via HID_SAM] (Type 96)". The Kofax Reader Maintainer is required for this purpose.
- For single function printers, the recommended solution is the - CRN0MC02 (Ethernet Card Reader with SAM and Full iCLASS decoding)
NOTE: These parts are once again available for ordering as of July 2020.
For Konica-Minolta MFPs using Equitrac Embedded, the recommended reader is AU-202H. Note that this reader is sold and supported by Konica-Minolta.
