Has anyone successfully used the dell smart card reader built into the E and D series lattitude dell laptops with EEM? If so is there anything I should know before attempting this? I know you need to use HID iClass cards but would like to know if this works before buying one and testing it out.
Well the reader supports a few other types of cards but I would like to use the HID iClass card. http://www.hidglobal.com/partners/tabbedWithShowcase.php?pid=1 Just want to know if anyone uses the built in contactless reader on the dells or if its possible. I cant find out the manufacturer of the reader itself so not sure what driver to use for EEM.
if it's a HID card, then no, neither the reader or the cards are supported. They probably could be if Dell can provide the right drivers etc, but it would be a custom project - best bet if this is really interesting for you is to contact your account manager and get a professional services project rolling.
How about any of these:?
NXP DESFire® (13.56 MHz)
NXP MIFARE® (13.56 MHz)
Sony Felica® (13.56 MHz)
ISO14443 Type A/B (13.56 MHz)
ISO15693 (13.56 MHz)
They also work with the dell reader.
