Elatec’s TWN4 series of RFID reader modules enable solution providers and developers to enjoy maximum flexibility during integration. The modules support a wide range of RFID standards and technologies, which allows for a limited number of product variants.
The TWN4 MultiTech Nano range is also extremely compact, with dimensions of 31 x 17.8 x 2.7 mm. With the components mounted to one side, it facilitates easy placement on the main circuit board. Elatec also offers users who only require an RFID frequency range of 13.56 or 125/134.2 kHz the less-expensive TWN4 MultiTech Nano HF and TWN4 MultiTech Nano LF variants.
Moreover, the readers TWN4 MultiTech Nano and TWN4 MultiTech HF support NFC and are particularly well suited for integration into mobile devices. Customer specific product variants enable integration into products, which are to be certified for payments according to the EMVCo standard.
