NFC/HF RFID is a short-range wireless connectivity technology standard that enables a secure transaction between a reader and a contactless smart card.
The technology is based on ISO/IEC 14443 type A and B (proximity) ISO/IEC 15693 (vicinity) standards, using the HF 13.56 MHz unlicensed band.
The device supports the following operating modes:
  • Reader mode
  • Card Emulation mode.
Using NFC, the device can:
  • Read contactless cards, such as contactless tickets, ID cards, and ePassport.
  • Read and write information to contactless cards, such as SmartPosters and tickets, as well as devices with an NFC interface, such as vending machines.
  • Read information from supported medical sensors.
  • Pair with supported Bluetooth devices such as printers, ring scanners (for example, RS6000), and headsets (for example, HS3100).
  • Exchange data with another NFC device.
  • Emulate contactless cards such as a payment, ticket, or SmartPoster.
The device's NFC antenna is positioned to read NFC cards from the top of the device while the device is being held.
The device's NFC antenna is located on the back of the device, near the Interface Connector.
