JADAK Unveils Plug-and-Play RFID Reader

JADAK, a business unit of Novanta Corp., has announced the release of its ThingMagic Elara plug-and-play USB reader, designed to enable the easy addition of RFID into mid- and short-range applications. The Elara, according to the company, supports an interface between applications and RFID readers, known as the RAIN Communication Interface.

Based on the ThingMagic Nano module, the Elara offers interface and operability features that allow engineers to minimize design efforts and implement RFID in any application requiring a mid- or short-range read distance. The Elara supports autonomous workflows, allowing the rapid creation of solutions without the need for RFID expertise, software development kits or integration tools.

JADAK has also introduced the ThingMagic EL6e RAIN RFID smart module for OEM customers, which is available to channel partners. The EL6e is an embedded RFID solution for short- to mid-range applications that require a quick path to integration. "With the introduction of both the Elara and EL6e, JADAK is demonstrating our dedication to innovation by bringing plug-and-play capability into the RFID market," said Kurt Matheson, JADAK's VP of marketing, in a prepared statement.

Both the Elara and the EL6e will be demonstrated in booth #545 at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2019 conference and exhibition, which will take place next week at Arizona's Phoenix Convention Center. The EL6e was recently nominated for one of this year's RFID Journal Awards.
