Extra-large PC/SC Smart Card Reader – OEM

DL533R XL is an RFID Smart Card PC/SC Reader Writer with fully integrated NXP PR533 – NFC Solution Chip Transceiver Module for contactless communication on 13.56 MHz.

The DL533R XL belongs to the group of Digital Logic advanced RFID card readers. It is a PC / SC smart card reader with a fully integrated NXP PR533 – NFC transceiver chip module for contactless communication at 13.56 MHz.

DL533R XL OEM device is a large-sized OEM version of the DL533R Reader Series.

Due to the large built-in RF antenna, the range of its reading range has been expanded. Accordingly, the device can read RFID cards at a distance of up to 180 mm (7.99 “).

The DL533R XL Reader runs on dedicated ROM firmware in an integrated microcontroller. Firmware handled many RF protocols through high-speed USB 2.0 host interface, including the CCID (chip card interface device) protocol.

The device, as a common part of the integration of computers and peripherals, completes its purpose in Electronic Identity (eID) applications, network payment / Internet security, authentication systems, vending machines, e-kiosk, and many others.
