Card Readers

On the Card Readers page, you can find two sections with card reader settings: the Card Reader Settings, and the HP Card Reader Settings.

Card Reader Settings

Here you can connect new types of card readers by adding the card reader's IDs and serial number. To connect a new type of card reader to your printing device, enter the VID, the PID, and optionally the serial number. Click Submit Query to add the setting. Added settings can be deleted by clicking the trash icon in the Actions column. After adding new types of card readers, you have to run the Remote setup of the HP Embedded terminals to apply the changes.

Card Readers settings

MyQ does not guarantee that the newly added card reader types will be compatible with the HP printing devices or that they will properly read your currently used ID cards.

HP Card Reader Settings

These settings are activated by enabling the Configure HP readers by MyQ option in MyQ, Settings, Configuration Profile panel, in the Terminal tab.

Configure HP readers by MyQ option

You can configure up to four technologies (Card Settings 1 – 4) for the HP Universal card reader. Each technology can be set on its individual Card Setting tab. After setting the card reader, click Submit Query. Changes are applied immediately; the Remote setup of the HP Embedded terminals is not required. This setting is applied to all HP printing devices equipped with the HP Universal card reader.
