The DUALi Dragon reader supports NFC and contactless smart card functionalities and can be used as a standalone device or integrated into payment devices such as ATMs, POS terminals or NFC-enabled kiosks. The device is intended to serve applications such as Automatic Fare Collection, payment and loyalty.

In awarding the certification, test laboratory KTC applied Clear2Pay’s NFC Forum-validated test solution to validate the device. The certification makes the DUALi Dragon one of the first NFC devices to meet the standards of the NFC Forum, the non-profit organisation for the deployment of NFC technology. The Forum’s certification programme ensures that NFC devices conform to standards and are interoperable between NFC devices, which is key for consumer confidence.
