JADAK Offers UHF RFID Smart Module for OEMs

JADAK, a business unit of Novanta, has announced the availability of its ThingMagic EL6e UHF RFID smart module for original equipment manufacturers. The EL6e, an embedded RFID solution for short- to mid-range applications, supports autonomous workflows, permitting the rapid creation of solutions. The EL6e does not mandate the use of SDKs and integration tools, and it supports an interface between applications and RFID readers known as the RAIN Communication Interface.

"With EL6e, we have provided a way for our customers add RFID to their workflows without having to be experts in the technology," said Harinath Reddy, JADAK's senior director of RFID research and development, in a prepared statement. "The EL6e is now available to ship to JADAK's OEM customers and will be available through our distribution and reseller partner network, along with the Elara plug-and-play USB reader in March."

The ThingMagic EL6e module and the Elara reader will be demonstrated at the RAIN Alliance group meeting on Mar. 5-7 in Memphis, Tenn. The device will also be showcased in JADAK's booth at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2019, which will be held on Apr. 2-4 in Phoenix, Ariz.
