Elatec RFID Systems has developed a new reader module which supports all common radio-frequency identification (RFID) standards as well as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and near-field communication (NFC). Called TWN4 MultiTech 3 BLE, it aims to provide flexibility to manufacturers of devices for access control, charging stations, point-of-sale (POS), parking space management, fitness and time-tracking.
The (re)configuration of integrated TWN4 MultiTech 3 BLE reader modules can also be carried out in a contactless manner using special configuration cards (TWN4 CONFIG card).
Additionally, the reader module also supports clock/data (Omron) and Wiegand for applications such as time-tracking and access control. Various BLE credential systems can be integrated for mobile phone applications such as Orange PackID, UTC Supra, LEGIC connect and the proprietary Elatec Mobile Badge BLE solution. Elatec readers also come equipped with all the essential country approvals and can be sold and used worldwide – a special advantage for manufacturers with international operations.
