Maximum flexibility with RFID, NFC and Bluetooth
Elatec RFID Systems, a specialist in developing RFID reader and writer systems, will be exhibiting at electronica (8 to 11 November 2016). At Stand W22 in Hall A4 of the Munich event, the manufacturer will be showcasing its wide range of multi-frequency and multi-standard components for over 60 radio-identification technologies. Demonstration of the TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE read/write module, which enables integration of Bluetooth functionalities, is set to be a particular highlight
Elatec has always sought to make life easier for solution providers, given the large number of RFID technologies that exist. This starts with the analysis of infrastructures in place using the TWN4 MultiTech TechTracer Kit, and extends via convenient Software Development Kits through to the actual RFID reader/writer devices. The devices are available as plug-and-play desktop card readers and in a variety of module formats that are ready for integration. The range of applications therefore spans everything from access control and secure printing to NFC payment solutions at vending machines. With the TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE, Elatec has once again perfected the approach of being able to develop extremely versatile products by using multi-standard modules. Because this chipset is optimised not only for over 60 RFID technologies in the 125 kHz, 134.2 kHz and 13.56 MHz frequency ranges, but also for NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), completely new application scenarios can be explored. Particularly in smartphone terminals, for example, the NFC capability of phones, which is still not universal, can be circumvented by switching to BLE as the communication channel.
Elatec RFID Systems was founded in 1988 and specialises in developing and selling short-range contact-free (RFID, NFC, Bluetooth) and contact-based (Smartcard) writing and reading modules. Elatec is based in Munich, where it also operates a production facility, and has a number of international sales offices and partners all over the world. Elatec’s core product is the TWN4 MultiTech multi-frequency/multi-standard reader, which supports both high (13.56 MHz) and low (125/134.2 kHz) frequencies, allowing it to simultaneously read out more than 50 RFID technologies that are commonly used internationally.
Elatec’s products are available as OEM PCB and desktop solutions. They are used in many different kinds of applications and OEM solutions for secure printing, time-tracking, tablets, access control, production, distribution, kiosk systems, till systems, single sign-on and more.
