RFID reader/writer knows all RFID standards

December 05, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Elatec's TWN4 MultiTech 3 BLE universal reader module supports all current RFID standards for the frequency ranges 125 and 134.2kHz as well as the 13.56MHz band, including NFC.

The latter, when combined with BLE, can allow iPhones and Android smartphones to be used for identification and wallet solutions. The 50x35x7mm PCB module can be delivered with customized protective housing. Upon request, additional interfaces can be implemented, such as CAN bus and OSDP/RS485 for industrial applications. The integrated TWN4 MultiTech 3 BLE reader modules can not only be reconfigured in the application through the network, but also in a contactless manner using special configuration cards. Alongside three GPIOs, the I²C, SPI, RS232 serial interfaces and USB, the device 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.
