The CardMan 3010 is a smart card reader designed by Omnikey. It is integrated with a CT API software interface that enables it to simplify communication with all types of smart cards. With the CT API software, the CardMan 3010 card reader can read smart cards with both synchronous and asynchronous technologies. Through the software, the necessary commands required to manage the card terminal can be easily transmitted. The CT API software interface also enables any card's terminal to be addressed independently of the port being used. The CardMan 3010 smart card reader thus has three main functions as supported by the CT _data, the CT_init and the CT_close. When under operation, the function value of the device is usually zero. A negative value indicates that the card is not in good operating condition has developed a technical error.

The CardMan 3010 smart card reader has an application programmer that can control the characteristics of the REQUEST ICC function by addition of the figure 512 to the default port numbers. When the default number 512 is added the REQUEST ICC function of the CardMan 3010 smart card reader, the card will not power on a subsequent time if it is already powered on. Instead, it returns the number 6201 as a warning, indicating that the card's ICC is already present ad working. The CardMan 3010 smart card reader uses a CT_data function to send ICC commands to any card or the card terminal and returns the resultant command response with the respective calling programs. The card's CT_init function selects and initiates a CT/host interface. With this function, the CardMan 3010 card sets default communication and sets communication defaults automatically. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CardMan 3010 errors before installing any driver updates.
