HID Global's OMNIKEY 5427CK Reader functions in virtually any PC environment. Independent of the operating system and use case, the reader's CCID or Keyboard Wedge interface provide the ideal solution without the need to install or maintain drivers. This removes complex software lifecycle management issues in the field and accelerates time to market.
