The ACR83 'PINeasy' SDK from ACS is a detailed development kit allowing users to program applications compatible to the ACR83. The ACR83 is a USB 2.0 device with secure PIN entry facilities. This reader allows PIN entries to be made to the device itself rather than via a PC or workstation, removing the possibility of the interception of highly valuable information by a virus, trojan or USB sniffer.

Approved to EMV level 1, the ACR83 can be used for a wide variety of high security applications and is one of the smallest PIN-pad readers in the market.
