Proximity Readers

Prox Series card readers are designed for customers seeking to leverage their existing card system for applications beyond physical security. Engineered to work with nearly all proximity technologies, Prox Series readers provide error-free identification for over 300 million physical access proximity cards worldwide. Featuring plug-n-play functionality, no required software, and embedded configurable flash memory, the reader is ready to integrate with nearly all operating systems, applications, and embedded controllers.

The USB model emulates a keyboard and keystrokes the card’s ID and/or site code to the cursor’s location on the screen. The reader can be configured to add keystrokes before and after the card’s data. The serial version, available in RS-232, Ethernet, or USB Virtual Com, delivers the card’s data in ASCII.

ACDI offers an incredibly wide array of proximity readers to fit every need. Please contact our sales team at to let one of our specialists configure or recommend the solution that is right for you.

Easy Interface:
Since there is no software deployed, the plug-n-play reader designs are truly easy to integrate into your existing application. The USB models connect directly to USB ports and send data as keystrokes. The RS-232 model connects to a serial port and sends data as ASCII. The Ethernet model comes with free software to redirect the IP address to virtual COM port on Windows® PCs. The USB Virtual COM model emulates a virtual serial device.

Compatible with Windows CE®, Windows 2000®, Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, Windows 7®, Macintosh®, the Solaris™ 
operating system, Sun Ray™ thin clients, and Linux. (Free configuration software requires Windows® operating system.)

  • ACDI Hardware CPAD Terminal

cPad Terminal

CPad is a high resolution 7” touch screen that interfaces with your copier, and brings all of PaperCut’s core functionality to almost any copier.

CPad works by locking the copier until the user has authenticated by one of the various configurable authentication methods. Users interact with the Cpad via a rich touch screen, offering an intuitive interface. Copying is tracked and reported to the PaperCut central server in real time.

For secure print release and PaperCut “find me” printing, users are presented with an on-screen list of print jobs and may release their jobs with one touch. CPad supports all advanced features such as card readers, self-association/ registration of cards and account selection via keyword/ID search. The CPad delivers a high level of functionality for any environment.

Now you can take control of copy costs and print management on almost any multi function device using the Cartadis CPad
terminal with PaperCut MF. With CPad you can enforce copy & print quotas that encourage users to think before they print. The CPad can turn almost any device into a papercut machine while environmental impact reporting gives you facts on usage.
