pcProx®-USB: No Programming Required!
The pcProx USB RFID reader is compatible with all
EM4102 (125 kHz)RFID tags.
This reader acts as a hassle-free keyboard wedge. The powerful yet intuitive
configuration software can be used to configure the reader’s output with various
formatting options. Once configured, pcProx takes the proximity card’s identification
information and sends it as keystrokes as if it were typed by the user.
When pcProx is deployed, no software is needed. It uses standard USB drivers
supplied by the operating system such as Windows or Macintosh. PcProx-USB
can be programmed format the data length, add keystrokes (such as Enter or Tab)
to the beginning, middle, or after the card data prior to sending the resultant
output as keystrokes. This is all accomplished using the configuration utility.
Once configured, pcProx holds this information in its non-volatile memory.

Using this approach, the unique number in the proximity card becomes either part
of all of the password required by the operating system. This low cost, low
maintenance solution is perfect for all environments supporting USB!
At the logon prompt, the user simply waves their proximity card and the
pcProx USB fills in the password field for you. You can then have the reader add
a 'ENTER' or TAB key to complete the process.
Usage 1: Single-factor authentication
Similar to building access, the number in the proximity card is the entire
Usage 2: Two-Factor Authentication
For increased security, couple the proximity card number with a 4 character
PIN (supplied by the user) for a secure two-factor authentication system.
