The ACS ACR1252U-A1 is the NFC reader and writer that we recommend for manual NFC encoding with the GoToTags NFC Encoder software. The ACR1252U is the NFC Forum-certified, upgraded model of the popular ACR122U. It has faster manual encoding speeds, a better reading range and it is firmware upgradeable which makes it future-proof. The ACR1252U plugs into a USB port and has a SAM (Secure Access Module) slot. It can be used for card emulation and Peer-to-Peer Communication (communication with most-NFC enabled mobile phones). This NFC reader is well suited for high level security applications. Key diversification and mutual authentication through the SAM can restrict the exposure of keys and limit the possibility of keys being stolen. The ACR1252U comes with the GoToTags NFC logo on the top surface.

NFC Chip Types
An NFC tag has an NFC chip inside of it which performs the NFC interactions. There are several NFC chip types available and the choice of which NFC chip type to use is important. Each NFC chip has its own characteristics, features and cost. If you are not sure which NFC chip to use, our recommendation is to get a couple of each type to test with. The NXP NTAG series is typically what customers use. The NXP NTAG series comes in a variety of data capacity sizes and they offer the best device compatibility, speed, availability and cost.
