Event Attendance - Set up for iCard Scanner

Information about supported iCard scanners for use with ATLAS Event Attendance.

iCard Scanners

ATLAS Event Attendance has the option to use an card scanner to pull the UIN from a student's iCard. We currently support the following scanner model:

IDTech MiniMag Reader Series: IDMB-334133BM

The scanner we recommend is guaranteed for 1,000,000 swipes.

Your unit will be responsible for purchasing scanners directly from a vendor. Once your scanners arrive, they are not immediately ready for use. They will need to be dropped off with ATLAS Application Development to be programmed for use with ATLAS Exam Attendance. We require three business days to program your scanners, so it's important not to leave this element until the last minute.

If you aren't sure who's in charge of purchasing for your unit, contact your department head - and send them our way if they have any questions about making your purchase!

If your unit does not have the financial ability to purchase scanners, ATLAS Teaching and Learning have a small amount available to rent. Contact them at for further information on scanner rental.
