ACR88 PIN-Pad Reader

acr 88The ACR88 PIN-pad reader is a versatile handheld portable smart card reader, featuring a built-in keypad, an LCD, a bi-color LED and a buzzer.  Its capability for hosting non-volatile memory brings about better system support, whereas its onboard memory enables future firmware and application enhancements that guarantee against obsolescence.  
ACR88 is a line of secure pocket-sized electronic devices designed primarily for multi-applications. It is capable of performing secure authentication, displaying rich information from the card, and conducting online or offline transaction.
