RF IDeas launches three new card readers

ANAHEIM, CA, Sept. 21, 2009 – RF IDeas, has introduced three new card readers with more compact form factors to its portfolio of larger secure card readers. RF IDeas launched its pcSwipe magnetic stripe, pcProx PCMCIA and USB thumb-drive card readers this week during the annual ASIS International security conference in Anaheim, CA.

“We have incorporated the same quality features of our existing card readers into these smaller formats,” said RF IDeas CEO Richard Landuyt. “The advantage to the end-user for the PCMCIA and USB card readers is portability for a variety of card reading needs. We are providing more power to the cards and badges that employees use every day,” said Landuyt.

The reader is compatible with the billions of magnetic stripe cards circulated worldwide and has been designed to meet the identification and security needs of customers in many different environments and industries.
