Lisle Design has two different card reader systems: Standard and Hyper.
The standard card readers are ideal for those who only need to host a small number of smart cards and are not concerned about the USB limitations of their system.
The standard card readers are plug-and-play - they do not require any additional software. You will immediately be able to communicate with the smart cards.
The Hyper Card Rack™ is designed to allow the connection of hundreds of card readers to one host computer. Using serial data multiplexing, 240 card readers
can be connected to just one USB connection. There is a very small amount of additional software required to communicate with the Hyper Card Rack™. A development kit
is available to assist with this.
All of our card reader units are available with an optional integrated Raspberry Pi mini server. We do not supply an operating system with these units.
Please see our card reader comparison chart or contact us for more details.
