HID Global has released its OMNIKEY 5427CK Chip Card Interface Device and keyboard wedge reader. This contactless dual frequency reader can integrate into printers and single sign-on products, enabling secure print authentication.
The keyboard wedge functionality enables the device to retrieve data from a credential that’s being read and input the card data into an application with keystrokes emulation.
A variation, the OMNIKEY 5127CK, is a reader board that enables this same functionality for embedded applications.
The OMNIKEY 5427CK supports both low-frequency and high-frequency standards. It is currently available from HID Global.
