Posted by Industry News on

ELATEC TWN4 MultiTech 3 BLE RFID Reader Writer With CAN Bus Interface

Elatec announced its TWN4 Multitech 3 BLE module with optional CAN Bus interface. The RFID reader/writer device is designed for OEM (original equipment manufacturer) applications. 

It supports many current RFID standards for the frequency ranges 125 kHz and 134,2 kHz as well as the 13,56-MHz band, including NFC (near field communication). 

An optional CAN interface is available to support industrial applications. Certifications are available for Europe and North America.

The product has been optimized in respect to size. It addresses small printers, healthcare electronics, driver identifications, point-of-sales equipment, etc. It is compatible with many transponders and features an 18-KB on flash-memory. 

Additionally, it provides three general-purpose I/O ports.


RFID For Dummies

RFID For Dummies

  • Many companies have asked suppliers to begin using RFID (radio frequency identification) tags by 2006
  • RFID allows pallets and products to be scanned at a greater distance and with less effort than barcode scanning, offering superior supply-chain management efficiencies
  • This unique plain-English resource explains RFID and shows CIOs, warehouse managers, and supply-chain managers how to implement RFID tagging in products and deploy RFID scanning at a warehouse or distribution center
  • Covers the business case for RFID, pilot programs, timelines and strategies for site assessments and deployments, testing guidelines, privacy and regulatory issues, and more
