WHICH SETTING TO CHOOSE ? PC/SC
PC/SC is the short form for Personal Computer / Smart Card. It is a set of specifications created by the smartcard and computing industry to ensure a complete interoperability at the applicative level. In PC/SC setting, the PUCK is a transparent coupler, which means that he sends orders of the application (read, write, security) to the card and feedbacks the answers without trying to process them. Thanks to its integrated SIM/SAM slot, the PUCK One is the ideal medium for secured transactions.
In RFID Scanner setting, the PUCK is a smart reader. Once set to look for this or this data in several contactless card types or badges, it is performing the transaction with the card by itself and transmits only the useful data to the computer or tablet. Seen as a USB keyboard (HID keyboard profile), PUCK is as simple to use as a barcode scanner. Every existing application can operate the PUCK as an entry peripheral as easily as if data were entered by the operator.
I AM A BIT LOST...
You can also choose not to choose - for now. The PUCK One goes from one set to another easily. You can either use SpringCard Companion or put on the product a MasterCard formatted with the same software. Security is a constant concern for SpringCard, only the lawful owner can intervene on the settings of its products.
