Elatec Expands Development Board for RFID Modules

Elatec RFID Systems, a manufacturer of RFID reader-writer modules, has announced an expansion for its TWN4 MultiTech Nano Development Board. The device, called an I/O Extender, provides additional interfaces. The expanded Development Board provides RFID solution developers with an environment in which they can use the TWN4 MultiTech Nano multi-standard RFID reader module, which covers all current 125 kHz, 134.2 kHz and 13.56 MHz RFID technologies.

The TWN4 MultiTech Nano measures 31 millimeters by 17.8 millimeters by 2.5 millimeters, the company reports, and is single-sided, making it suitable for surface mounting. It can be directly soldered to a printed circuit board or mounted via connectors.

Elatec is providing an optional expansion with additional interfaces for its TWN4 MultiTech Nano Development Board: Omron and Wiegand for time-tracking and access control, as well as the CAN bus and RS485/RS422 interfaces that are common for industrial applications.

The expansion to the Development Board features an LC display, an I2C temperature sensor and a relay for switching peripheral devices on and off. Like the board to which it is attached, it features LEDs to indicate whether commands have reached the right interfaces.
