Linkstream's DB-0 Wiegand to USB Converter Dongle with Keyboard Emulation is made specifically for connecting RFID proximity and magnetic stripe card readers to a PC or other computing device, it allows you to read card data with no programming required. Connect the cable, plug it into the USB port on your computer and you’re up and running.
Integrate any card reader using the Wiegand interface standard with any computing platform that supports USB Human Interface Device keyboard input. Since no software is required to be deployed on the host device, no integration or programming is required. The device can be configured to send only the raw card data or to add carriage return and linefeed characters to the data for compatibility with spreadsheets, word processors and many other software packages right out of the box.
Perfect for connection to computers, terminals, printers and MFP's, PLC's or even embedded applications. Works with HID Prox, HID iCLASS, Mifare, AWID, Indala and many other card reader types. Even works with the long data lengths found with US Government issued FIPS 201 ID cards for CHUID applications. Use your existing proximity ID badge for more than physical access!
