The new Elatec universal RFID reader/writer module supports all current RFID standards for the frequency ranges 125 and 134.2 kHz as well as the 13.56 MHz band, including NFC. The latter, when combined with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), can allow iPhones and Android smartphones to be used for identification and wallet solutions.

As a PCB, designed for space-saving purposes, the TWN4 MultiTech 3 BLE is more compact than its predecessors, the TWN4 MultiTech and the TWN4 MultiTech 2 BLE. The 50 x 35 x 7 mm module can be delivered with customized protective housing. Upon request, additional interfaces can be implemented, such as CAN bus and OSDP/RS485 for industrial applications.

RFID Modules Enhanced with FLC Functionality

The TBEN-S-RFID block I/O modules from Turck come with new functions including a field logic controller function

In time for the SPS IPC Drives 2017 fair, Turck has expanded the functionality of the TBEN-S-RFID compact Ethernet/RFID interfaces. The block I/O modules with protection to IP67 come with a new free of charge firmware update, offering many new functions, including the license-free ARGEE programming environment. This Field Logic Controller function (FLC) enables users to implement low to medium complexity control tasks directly on the block I/O module so that these tasks can be decentralized. This reduces the load on the central controller so that only the relevant data has to be transferred. The TBEN-S-RFID can be linked easily to PLC systems without the use of a special function block being necessary.
