Pcounter Swipe and Card Readers for Touch-free printing

Release documents touch-free in any multi-vendor environment using your Pcounter supported card reader

Feature intro

If you already have an embedded solution, it can be configured to release your print jobs with only a simple card swipe (contactless). This allows you to release documents without having to touch shared hardware yet safely and securely collect documents.

For colleagues working from home, set up an isolated printer at the office (e.g. in the foyer or a meeting room), release the documents to the printer without meeting other colleagues, or touching shared hardware. Print jobs can be released by connecting a Pcounter Swipe card reader (network) OR by using Pcounter embedded with card reader (USB).

To see how this is being done in the Pcounter Europe office, view the video below.


Use Card Readers together with Pcounter embedded or Pcounter Swipe to release all jobs to a specific printer.​


Card Reader

Pcounter UK & Ireland can supply the card-readers with broad range of reader technologies such as MIFARE, HID, iClass, Hitag, Legic and more.

Easy setup and configuration

The set up and configuration is simple and user friendly, in settings go to secure access and select 'Automatically release print jobs' to enable the release of documents using only the swipe card and card reader


Pcounter Swipe

Pcounter Swipe software provides a point of authentication to specified printers through network-based card readers associated with the Pcounter print queues.

All printer activity is tracked, logged, and controlled through Pcounter. After print jobs are submitted, users visit the isolated printer and authenticate by presenting their card on a network card reader located near the printer.

It works with any printer, and can work for simple printers in a mixed environment of MFP's with embedded software terminals and printers.

No complex integration with printer/copier hardware.
