TWN4 MultiTech 2 family
The ELATEC TWN4 MultiTech 2 family of contactless RFID readers and modules allows users to read and write to almost any LF and HF tags and labels. The devices are available with an NXP or LEGIC frontend and support NFC and, optionally, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). In addition, they are also compatible with the two most commonly used smartphone operating systems, Android and iOS, which gives the option to integrate them in mobile identification applications. The desktop readers are available as Plug & Play devices that can be easily customized (i.e. inlay design), whereas the PCB modules offer a large amount of interfaces and a perfect form factor for easy and quick integration in any host device. This broad range of product features makes the MultiTech 2 family an excellent solution for almost every project.
TWN4 MultiTech 3 family
The powerful reader modules of the ELATEC TWN4 MultiTech 3 family combine a compact form factor with optimized read/write performance. All devices integrate RFID (125 kHz / 13.56 MHz), NFC and, optionally, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) capabilities. Thanks to their reduced size, the modules can be easily used for almost all applications where small size and full performance matter. Furthermore, they are compatible with the most common host interfaces, such as USB, and they can also be configured with different connector options.
TWN4 Slim family
Even smaller than an ID-1 card – The RFID readers of the Slim family are ELATEC's most compact and flat readers. All devices are available with an NXP or LEGIC frontend and support NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies, which makes the readers an ideal solution for mobile data communication and authentication applications. In addition, they are equipped with a flexible micro USB cable and, optionally, with mounting holes that enable a quick and easy installation into any industrial application, especially MFP printers. The readers are available as part of a kit with several accessories (e.g. cables, mounting frame or snap-in covers for printers) or as a standalone unit working with a PC or any other device equipped with a USB interface.
TWN4 Palon Compact family
The RFID readers and modules of the Palon Compact family support two RFID frequencies (125 kHz / 13.56 MHz), NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies. All devices are available with an NXP or LEGIC frontend and support a wide range of interfaces, for instance USB, RS-485 and, optionally, the OSDP protocol. A cost-optimized “light” variant with fewer interfaces and without BLE is also available. Although the readers are general-purpose devices, they are particularly appropriate for time attendance and access control. Depending on the intended application, the readers are available as modules integration into a host device, as panel mount readers with IP65 protection or as in-wall readers with an IP54 protected housing.
TWN4 Palon Square family
The RFID modules of the Palon Square family are versatile reader/writer modules with a wide range of interfaces, like RS-485 or Wiegand. All modules support NFC and, optionally, further interfaces like the OSDP protocol or I2C. Although the modules are general-purpose devices, they are particularly appropriate for time attendance and access control applications. Thanks to their compact dimensions, they are the ideal solution for integration into third-party products.
TWN4 USB Front Reader family
The devices of the USB Front Reader family are an excellent solution for any RFID-based applications that require a direct and simple connection per USB. All readers are available with an NXP or LEGIC frontend and support RFID, NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies. In addition, the patented USB connector on the rear side can be turned to 90°, which enables a quick and easy installation into any host system equipped with a USB port. Thanks to their compact form and enhanced read/write performance, the readers are particularly appropriate as a secure printing solution, but also for Single-Sign on and healthcare applications.
TWN4 MultiTech Mini family
The RFID modules of the MultiTech Mini family have been designed for integration into machines, handheld computers or any other device where small size matters. Thanks to their compact dimensions, the modules can be directly integrated into almost any host system. The host communication takes place via RS-232 or asynchronous serial TTL interface. Besides, the modules offer positions for the placement of two LEDs that can be controlled per software. For applications requiring additional security, an external Secure Access Module (SAM) can be connected.
TWN4 MultiTech Nano RFID modules
With the MultiTech Nano family, ELATEC offers extremely compact RFID modules that are also fully compliant with the TWN4 technology. Their miniature size and low energy consumption give the option to integrate them in smaller battery-powered consumer devices, like tablet PCs, POS terminals or mobile payment systems. Furthermore, their components are mounted on one side only, which facilitates easy placement on the main circuit board. These devices are the ideal solution in case of particular restrictions during the installation (space limitations, metal surrounding the reader antenna, etc.). All modules are available with an NXP or a LEGIC frontend chip.
