CEPAS CAN number reader (EZ-Link, NETS FlashPay)

This is a CAN Number Reader [PIC-126] device for the reading of the CEPAS Card (Ez-Link, NetsFlashPay) used in Singapore transportation payment system.

This reader is connected via a USB cable to your computer, laptop, or tablet device. To read the CAN number of a CEPAS card (EZ-Link or NETS FlashPay), simply tap on top of the reader. A beep will sound, and the light indicator will flash to indicate CAN number read.

The CAN number read from the CEPAS card will be read and instantly typed out onto your application like a keyboard.

For example:
A spreadsheet (Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc) can be opened up. The CAN number reader simply capture each card’s CAN number and make an entry onto your spreadsheet application (behaves like your keyboard). Allow the spreadsheet to capture and record the CAN numbers. Entry to a simple notepad application works in a similar way.
