Arcontia has announced that its embedded contactless smart card reader, designed for the Nautiz Eticket Pro PDA, is to be used by Dutch Railways.

The Swedish company, Handheld Group, was awarded the PDA contract to supply Dutch Railways (NS) with more than 10,000 rugged Nautiz handhelds, of which 6,000 units are the Nautiz Eticket Pro, including the embedded Arcontia contactless smart card reader.

The combination of the smart card reader and the PDA provides train conductors with a lean and rugged mobile device for ticket control and travel information, and to support workflow processes.

The ISO 14443 A/B smart card reader from Arcontia is based on Arcontia’s latest contactless smart card reader platform, the 1300 series.

The reader is fully integrated into the PDA, without any hardware changes to the PDA ergonomics, due to the design of the smart card reader and antenna.

In addition to the Mifare range, the Arcontia smart card reader product range supports Smart MX and several other smart cards used in cashless ticketing and payment applications.

To this, the smart card reader platform incorporates up to four high-speed SAM slots (Secure Access Module) and the reader software supports the latest Mifare AV1 and Mifare AV2 SAMs from NXP.
