  • Wi-Fi Card Data Logger (WCDL)
    RFID (proximity) reader + remote card logging
    Wireless card data logging!
      Also accepts optional external card-reader


    The Wi-Fi Card Data Logger (WCDL) is a plug-and-play solution that consists of WC-6150 reader/controller (shown above) and Windows software (sold separately).  The WC-6150 device combines RFID (proximity) reader and non-volatile storage for up to 4000+ card transactions. (Capacity is doubled with optional memory expansion.) The WCDL is sleek and compact, measuring only 5.5" x 4.75" x 1".  This Wi-Fi solution is simple to install and requires no communications wiring.  It is ideal for use inapplications that require offline capture of card transactions:

    • Public transit
    • Shopping centers
    • Equipment usage
    • Inventory tracking
    • Student identification
    • Employee attendance
    • Tradeshows & conventions
    • OEM applications

    The WCDL automatically uploads stored records when connected to a host computer via Wi-Fi. The host uses a simple polling command to retrieve card data transactions. Each record consists of three comma-separated fields:

    • Date (yymmdd)
    • Time (hhmmss)
    • Card ID
    You may create your own custom host application or we can provide our WCDL Client application (for Windows). The WCDL Client automatically polls remote devices on a periodic basis and stores retrieved card data transaction records to files on disk.

    The WCDL is comprised of two primary elements:

    • WC-6150 controller (with card reader)
    • WCDL host software

    Compatible with standard Wi-Fi networks, the WC-6150 controller is a self-contained device with wireless TCP/IP interface, integrated RFID reader, and AC adapter. It is available in a number of variations as shown below:

    Indoor controller, with
    HID prox. reader

    Outdoor controller, with
    HID prox. reader
    Portable handheld, battery-operated, with HID prox. reader


    Windows Software

    WCDL Client software is compatible with WC-6150 controllers. This software provides functions for controller configuration, initialization, data upload, and more!  There are 3 available editions: lite, standard, & premium.  The table below summarizes the features for each edition:
