TWN4 Configuration Card Quick Demo

This video is a quick start demonstration of the TWN4 CONFIG Programmer. It is used to write RFID reader configurations on contactless cards - TWN4 Configuration Cards. These cards are then used to wireless (re)configure Elatec RFID cards readers. This helps to reduce the configuration time since the reader does not need to be connected to a computer or get unmounted from the machine which it is integrated in.

MPS card authentication (TCPConv)

The Elatec TCPConv enables card based features (such as authentication and pull printing) on devices which do not have support for the direct connection of an USB proximity card reader (i.e. single function printers).

The card reader connects directly to the TCPConv, which is then connected to the printer. When a card is swiped, the TCPConv sends the card data directly to the authentication server. In this way, the card data completely bypasses the single function printer. As a result, the TCPConv can work with network printers from any printer manufacturer.

The TCPConv will require two IP addresses (one for itself and the other one for the printer to which it is connected).

TWN4 Performance Optimization

Elatec strongly recommends reducing the number of RFID technologies that can be read with a TWN4 MultiTech once ready for installation. This will improve performance whether it be increasing identification distance, detection speed, or security. View the before and after performance of the TWN4 MultiTech after reducing the number of technologies that can be read.
