Primacy EXPERT is based on the characteristics of the Primacy printer
integrates a Smart Card Contact Station
which enables you to personalise the chip cards. The Primacy
EXPERT is compatible with ISO 7816-2 Chip Cards.
The push & contact system of the Smart Card Contact
Station provides the contact with the card only when a personalisation
of the chip is required. This advantage ensures a better Contact
Station durability and a higher card printing quality as it prevents
scratches on the card surface.Smart Cards have a microchip with a memory embedded, this memory can be programmed. A cash card could be regularly recharged with new monies and then used as an electronic wallet. The more advanced cards contain a micro processor opening up the possibilities for future applications.
Most of the systems of personalising the Smart Cards are invisible to the average
card holder. The processes used varied in implementation and complexity depending
on the type of Smart Card that is being used.
The Primacy EXPERT Card Printer offers card personalisation as it codes the chip and
prints on the card in one go. This single card personalisation system provides
flexibility and ability to obtain in a few minutes a finished card-in-hand.
To personalize the chip, the Primacy EXPERT Card Printer integrates a Smart Card
Contact Station to program the Smart Cards which complies with ISO 7816-2.
The Primacy card printer can also be supplied with both MAG encoding and contactless
encoding features installed. Contact us
for further information.
