To enable the use of a USB card reader, the Kyocera Card Authentication Kit (B) has to be activated on the printing device. The Kyocera Card Authentication Kit (B) is an optional plugin for all Kyocera printing devices based on HyPAS technology. If it is enabled and a supported card reader is connected to the USB slot, MyQ can read data acquired by the reader and use them for user identification. For the full unlimited version of CAK(B), contact your Kyocera supplier.

You can run the kit in demo mode for 30 days; the demo can be executed 3 times on each device.

If the CAK(B) is enabled but no compatible reader is connected to the USB slot, the ID card reader not connected permanent error message is displayed on the panel.

Activating the Card Authentication Kit (B)

  1. On the terminal's login screen, tap the MyQ icon, and then log in as the MyQ administrator.

  2. On the Admin Menu screen, tap the Unlock Panel button. The printing device's default screen opens.
