      • Application areas

          • Multi-technology RFID reader/writers

          • TWN4 is the next generation of the well-established and proven TWN3 offering. This highly flexible RFID interrogator is capable of dynamically reading a broad spectrum of radio frequencies and tags. It is also able to incorporate corporate various transponder types and frequency ranges, with minimal effort and cost. The device is an indispensable asset when developing applications and systems.
              • TWN4 MultiTech – housed reader/writer

              • The TWN4 MultiTech is a multi-technology reader which supports nearly all types of transponders in one reader. This feature is very useful to reduce stock or to help in environments, where companies migrate from one RFID technology to another or have different RFID systems at different locations. Its most common applications are in Single Sign-On and Secure Printing scenarios.
              • TWN4 MultiTech – OEM reader/writer

              • The OEM board version of the TWN4 MultiTech is also a multi-technology reader which supports nearly all types of transponders in one reader. This feature is very useful to reduce stock or to help in environments, where companies migrate from one RFID technology to another or have different RFID systems at different locations. It can be integrated directly in machines without further hardware customization.
              • TWN4 MultiTech Nano – reader/writer

              • The TWN4 MultiTech Nano is Elatec’s smallest module. With the components mounted to one side, it facilitates easy placement on the main circuit board. A version with pins already soldered is also offered for quicker implementation. For testing purposes Elatec offers a development board too. This reader is used for integration in devices with limited space (e.g. tablets, mobile phones). An EMVCo certification can be optionally aquired.
              • TWN4 MultiTech SmartCard – housed reader/writer

              • The TWN4 MultiTech SmartCard housed reader/writer includes both a contactless RFID interface as well as a slot to read contact cards. This exciting combination allows its users to add an additional higher level of security for certain applications dealing with the exchange of especially sensitive information.

              • TWN4 MultiTech Core – reader/writer module

              • Depending on the product design and size demand, the TWN4 MultiTech reader can be delivered optionally without an integrated antenna. In this case, it is possible to install an external antenna which can be custom positioned based on the application. The suitable product for this type scenario goes by the name TWN4 MultiTech Core.
              • TWN4 MultiTech HF Mini – housed reader/writer

              • This device is particularly well-suited for mobile and industrial applications, it is ideal for integration on printed circuit boards. The USB development platform for the Mini Reader MIFARE NFC (13.56MHz) allows OEMs and system integrators to quickly and simply integrate the compact RFID reader/writer unit into their own application.

              • Handheld reader/writer

              • Elatec's handheld reader is compatible with 125kHz RFID transponders and designed typically for tool ID or data acquisition applications.
              • TWN3 – OEM or housed reader/writer

              • The TWN3 reader family offers a cost effective alternative for simpler ID solutions. They all have same form factor and electrical behavior.

            • TCP CONVERTER

            • The Elatec TCPConv2 enables card based features (such as authentication and pull printing) on devices that do not have support for the direct connection of a USB proximity card reader (i.e. single function printers). The card reader connects directly to the TCPConv2, which is connected to the printer. When a card is swiped, the TCPConv 2 sends the card data directly to the authentication server. In this way, the card data completely bypasses the single function printer. As a result, the TCPConv2 can work with network printers from any printer manufacturer.

                • TCPCONV

                • TCPConv adds a device, which is equipped with a USB- or RS232-interface into your local area network (RJ45). A typical application is the extension of a network device (i.e. a network printer) by a local peripheral device. Several TCPConv can be cascaded for the simplified installation.
                • TCPCONV 2

                • The TCP Converter 2 is based on an embedded Linux platform which operates as a network router. TCPConv 2 hides IP address of connected printer and presents its own IP address as the only IP address seen in the network.
              • Antennas

              • Elatec provides antennas designed for LF (125kHz), HF (13.56MHz), or dual frequency (125kHz + 13.56MHz) applications and available directly built into the core module or separately in an external kit.
                  • 125KHZ

                  • Antenna for Nano and Core Module
                  • 125KHZ+13.56MHZ
