New CHERRY JT Family of Smart Card Readers

These smart card readers will offer you a cost effective solution for every card reading need.

These new JT Class 1 terminal smart card readers use bidirectional communication for both contact and contactless smart cards. All models are PC/SC smart card readers, and are compatible with CCID and CardMan 3021. The JT-0100WB and the JT-0300WB also have EMV 2000 Level 1 certification that will enable them to work with most smart cards currently on the market.

The JT-0100WB and the JT-0300WB models each feature a card guide in the housing to allow for easy one- handed operation, while the JT-0300WB and JT-0200WB models provide easy access to the contactless sensor. A 5.7’ USB cord provides convenience and ease of placement when in service, and a rubber surface on the bottom of the unit prevents slipping.

These smart card readers will offer you a cost effective solution for every card reading need, most notably those found in public administration, border control, transportation, educational, financial district and Point-of-Sale applications. Specific desktop applications include: access control and network log-on, single application sign-on, convenience replacement for passwords, multi-factor authentication, loyalty and multi-application cards, PKI (Private Key Infrastructure), digital signature and document encryption.

The JT-0200WB and the JT-0300WB contact smart card readers come with a 100,000 mating cycle life expectancy. All CHERRY JT Smart Card Readers have a 2-year warranty, and are available from authorized CHERRY distributors and resellers.
