A Universal Reader That’s Smaller than a Credit Card Elatec is proud to present a new addition to its TWN4 multi-standard RFID reader product family. The TWN4 Slim is a very flat reader, smaller than a credit card. It supports all common RFID technologies as well as smartphone ident solutions with NFC and BLE. The main application for the TWN4 Slim is integration into devices, particularly ones in the field of secure printing. It is also suitable for many other ID solutions if a highly compact reader is required for integration. It also impresses as a stand-alone device.

RFID reader integration via Ethernet port

Introducing the TCP3 Authentication / Release Station From secure printing to kiosks to industrial robotics, TCP3 enables user authentication and access control for devices lacking a USB port. ELATEC introduces the TCP3 authentication/release station, a small network appliance that enables devices without a USB port to incorporate an RFID or biometric reader, PIN pad or other form of user authentication and access control, and which supports USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet networks. “The TCP3 station was designed to minimize information technology support costs associated with additional IP or MAC addresses while consuming only one network drop from its Host port,” said Kenneth Buck, Solutions Architect for ELATEC.
