The iButton® Serial Typer™ is part of the brand new iButton® Typer™ family, specially programmed to input the serial numbers of Maxim iButtons® into an open word processing program. Compact and water resistant, this durable device is great for front desk registration and fleet driver ID, or any application that requires the entry of iButton® serial numbers.
Simply plug the iButton® Serial Typer™ into a USB port on your computer, open a word processing program, and hold the iButton® on the read head. There are no drivers that need to be installed, no set-up, and no product registration. The iButton® Serial Typer™ will input the serial number of the iButton® held on the read head where the cursor is placed in an open word processing program in the font style and size specified in the document. You can use your choice of word processing program: Word®, Excel®, Notepad, and more.
Our iButtonLink engineers can program the iButton® Serial Typer™ to print a custom 32-character string in front of or behind the iButton® serial number, making the Serial Typer™ customizable to any application.
Don’t use a QWERTY keyboard layout? Don’t worry, because iButtonLink engineers can also program the iButton® Typer™ to input the serial number in AZERTY as well.
Three LEDs line the side of the Technomelt-molded body and let you know the status of both the iButton® Typer™ and the iButton® on the read head. Red indicates that the device is powered. Yellow indicates that the device is recognized by the computer. Green indicates that the device has recognized the iButton®.
The iButton® Typer™ uses a micro-USB cable to connect to any computer running Windows (cable sold separately).
The iButton® Serial Number Typer™ is available in HID or Serial mode. Please indicate which you would like in the "special instructions" box before checking out.
