Product Information

The xPad is an NFC Reader and Writer with its own integral display and keypad. By enabling PIN entry, this device is an ideal solution for contactless payments, access control and other applications where security and identification are critical. The reader is widely compliant with the most popular contactless communication protocols, including DESFire, Mifare and FeliCa, and benefits from HID plug-and-play functionality via USB across multiple operating systems, including Windows.

The 15 button keypad of the xPad is robust and ergonomic, creating a reassuring and comfortable user experience whilst the clear, two-line display offers the possibility of customisable and personalised messages. Combined, these features provide for slick user interaction, such as two-factor authentication and option selection. The xPad supports the G2K API, giving developers complete control over the device, and making it easy to develop novel, customised and complex contactless solutions.

Order Guidelines

By using our excellent encoding service we can encode your NFC Products so they are ready to use as soon as they arrive at your door. If you do require your products encoded, please select the encoding option from the drop-down above and upload your encoding data by clicking on the 'Add File' button underneath. Your data can be in a spreadsheet or text document, or you can use our handy Encoding Template, which includes six example pages to get you started.

For more information on our Encoding service please click here

Artwork File:
To upload your artwork file simply click on the 'Add File' button underneath the drop-down above. Or alternatively you can upload your file in your account area after checkout.

Artwork Requirements:
To get optimum printing results for your products we require your artwork file to be in a vector based file format such as .pdf, .ai or .eps. with a bleed line of 3mm. Please see an artwork checklist below for our preferred artwork layout:
  1. Set up document to correct size
  2. Colour – CMYK
  3. Bleed – 3mm
  4. Add crop marks
  5. Safe area – 3mm
  6. Resolution – 300dpi
  7. Fonts – embedded
Extra Print Options

Please Note: These options are only available if they are listed within the selections above.

Variable Number Print:
Many of our NFC Products - from NFC Tags to NFC Cards and Industry NFC Tags - can benefit from Variable Number Print, which allows NFC Tags to be individually identified. We can print directly onto the surface of a Tag (in black), clearly displaying an ID which matches a Tag's encoding and allows it to be referenced quickly.
Depending on requirements, some of our customers require the printed number to be the 14 digit alphanumeric UID number that we would retrieve directly from the NFC chip (IC) itself, and then print this UID number on the surface of the NFC Product so you would be able to visibly see the number you would be scanning when using the NFC functionality.
To select the Variable Number Print option simply select 'Variable Number Print' in the drop down above and upload a file with the Variable Number Print sequence that you require printed. If you require the NFC chips UID to be printed rather than a specific sequence, please make this clear on the file you upload.

Variable QR Code Print:

Variable QR Code Print along with the NFC functionality on products gives users two options to retrieve information via either using a camera on the QR Code or tapping onto the NFC chip (IC). The information received from the user could be a simple URL or some text. Variable QR Code print also offers the easy individual identification of NFC Products, with the printing of an alphanumeric or numeric sequence. In this way, NFC QR Code Print allows for easy cross-referencing.
We require that customers send a spreadsheet with two simple columns - one for the QR Code information, and one for the data to be encoded (if required).
To select the Variable QR Code print option please select 'Variable QR Code Print' in the drop down above.

Barcode Print:
Barcode Print allows many of our NFC Products to be individually identified, displaying a sequence on your NFC Products. This offers an easy reference for a number of purposes. These alphanumeric or numeric sequences can vary according to each unique NFC Product.
We offer the choice of an NFC Barcode Print in a simple shortened format which allows for quick identification, or a longer version. To take advantage of our NFC Barcode Print service, all you need to do is send us a spreadsheet containing the barcode information.
Please Note: Barcode Print is not a selectable option. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
