TWN4 upgrade card

To offer maximum flexibility and choice, ELATEC has added a new tool to the TWN4 product family: the TWN4 upgrade card.

The standard version of Elatec TWN4 products support a wide variety of transponders and RFID technologies. The population of technologies can be extended by adding option P, option I, or option PI of a TWN4 product. With the upgrade card, additional technologies can be added quickly and without the need for additional tools or special know-how. The advantages are clear and numerous.

About upgrade cards

TWN4 UPGRADE CARDSAbout upgrade cards

On the one hand, customers can be offered the exact solution they need – standard, P, I or PI – and avoid delivering under-or-over qualified products, while ensuring product longevity with the possibility of easy upgrades in the field.

On the other hand, you can reduce your own complexity by simplifying inventory, while simultaneously increasing flexibility through customized products. The added benefit lies in optimized costs and inventory management, additional flexibility, quicker time-to-market, and an extra level of support, which is an advantage over competitors.
