Implementing future-proof RFID solutions faster!
ELATEC one of the world’s leading manufacturers of innovative multi-frequency RFID readers, will exhibit at the Embedded World 2020 trade show being held in Nuremberg on February 25–27.
Elatec will be presenting its universal RFID readers as well as identification solutions that are based on BLE and NFC. Special focus at the trade show presentation: services and tools for developing software and applications for Elatec products.
“RFID is a necessary component of our customers’ projects, but not part of their core business. We aim to make the integration of radio-based identification as simple as possible,” explains Klaus Nagel, Executive VP Global Sales at Elatec.
“No matter which technology and RFID standard the customer selects – with our RFID readers the manufacturer remains flexible and is prepared for future changes. With our toolset, we also make software implementation extremely convenient and offer consistently competent development support and comprehensive service.”
Extensive software package
Visitors to Elatec’s booth (Hall 3, Booth 239) are invited to benefit from the company's pre-sales consulting service with a needs analysis and individual advice regarding configuration decisions. The modular Elatec software package supports developers beyond the configuration and extends to the maintenance of installed readers.
At its core is the AppBlaster tool as the configuration center with functions for reading cards, modifying formats, defining output formats (decimal/hexadecimal), generating output logs, selecting supported transponders, memory management, and user feedback. The reader firmware can be processed as an image or adapted via configuration cards.
More smartphone usage
Since more and more smartphones are being used as identification tokens to replace or supplement classic transponders, Elatec also offers broad support in the implementation of NFC and BLE solutions. In addition, some first projects for electric vehicle charging stations have been implemented and certified by Apple as a value-added-service. This new add-on functionality enriches the broad spectrum of Elatec reader capabilities and simplifies everyday authentication for the user.
