Transponder technology

The TWN MultiTech: An all-in-one RFID reader family for all transponder protocols

What is TWN MultiTech?

There are many manufacturers and providers of RFID transponder technologies. The protocols through which they communicate are just as varied and different. Technically, a different RFID reader is required for each of these protocols. But with TWN MultiTech, we have developed a technology that can be used to read all of the world’s most common transponder protocols at the same time. TWN MultiTech is the basis for our versatile and powerful RFID readers/writers.

RFID readers with TWN MultiTech are only available from ELATEC!
