Offering the broadest range of smart card compatibility, including Class A, B, C (5v, 3v and 1.8v), the Belkin Smart Card Reader features a compact, tamper-resistant design for easy one-handed card insertion that is ideal for government data security use.
Designed to support smart cards meeting ISO7816 standards, which include CAC and PIV, the new Belkin Smart Card Reader has been built from the ground up to assure high security for government applications.

The reader operates seamlessly with Windows® 7 standard CCID drivers, no additional software or drivers are required.
