This is a simple Windows desktop .NET framework application that listens on all ACR122U readers for new tags. Once a tag is detected, the ID number of the detected tag is output into the currently active window as keyboard output. The output is in unspaced hexadecimal, with the option of appending a carriage return (or not). This should technically work with any PC/SC reader attached to Windows but I’ve only tested with the ACR122U.
- The application makes no sounds, but some OS configurations play specific sounds when a card or tag is presented and removed from the reader
- Do not remove the card or tag from the reader until the ID is output, or you may experience empty lines or no data being output at all
