    The SocketScan S550, a contactless membership card reader/writer, is designed to facilitate tap-and-go smart card and NFC applications. It combines the latest 13.56 MHz contactless technology with Bluetooth LE connectivity.

    The S550 was created to work with loyalty cards, memberships, and other customer-related services with applications. Together with an application, the S550 can automatically request the appropriate mobile pass from an iOS or Android host device for a franchise, store or event you are attending to ensure a fast and convenient end-user experience. The S550 with an application creates a simple user interaction and a high level of security by capturing a cryptographically generated payload from the mobile pass. The mobile pass then transmits the payload over secure Bluetooth to an iPad or other host device running a connected application.

    Ideal for applications with a broad range of solutions, such as hands-free verification for physical and logical access control and inventory tracking. The S550 supports three Bluetooth profiles: 1). HID Keyboard Emulation (for native app support), 2). Reader (default mode) and 3). Coupler Reader/Writer (the latter two for customer app development using our CaptureSDK).

    The S550 is compact and portable and can be plugged into power or run on battery power. Convenient for use anytime, anywhere with applications running on Android, Apple iOS devices (iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch®) and Windows. The S550 can be used with applications that support ISO 14443 Type A and B smart cards, ISO 15693 tags, MIFARE®, FeliCa®, NPX, STMicro tag and most NFC tags and devices compliant with ISO 18092 standard. It is Google Wallet certified and Apple Pay "VAS" (Value Added Service) certified. Complies with both Apple and Google NFC protocol on iPhone and Android devices.
