RFID is a flexible medium. It uses different technologies to suit different applications. There are different types of readers for different types of tags and different standards used in different parts of the world. But if you work as a user, developer, integrator or installer of RFID systems that may present a problem: What sort of tag are you trying to read, anyway?
Solving the Problem
Elatec have come up with a solution, the Tech Tracer Kit. The kit helps you to read and identify over 40 different types of low frequency and high frequency RFID technologies. It covers the 125kHz, 134.2kHz and 13.56MHz wavebands (not UHF).
What’s In The Elatec Kit?
Elatec are known for their range of desktop readers and their latest multi-frequency reader, the TWN4 Multitech, is ideal for applications needing to handle multi-frequency tags or tags of different frequencies (a common problem with access control systems and personal ID card systems in multi-national organisations, for example). The kit is fully supported for easy plug-in installation on Windows machines. It includes a range of tags for test purposes. There is also a USB memory stick which has drivers, sample source code, demos, datasheets. and documentation. The Tech Tracer Kit should be in the kit bag of any RFID developer or support specialist.
