ThingMagic EL6e Embedded RFID Reader Module Developer Kit
The ThingMagic EL6e Embedded RFID Reader Module Developer Kit enables easy integration of embedded RFID into OEM designs. Based on the industry-proven ThingMagic Nano module, the EL6e adds interface and operability features that allow engineers to minimize design efforts and quickly embed an RFID module in any application that requires mid-or short-range read distance. The EL6e supports autonomous workflows permitting rapid creation of solutions without RFID expertise nor the use of SDKs and integration tools, and it’s among the first products in the market to support a new developer-friendly interface between applications and RAIN RFID readers, the RAIN Communication Interface. This bare board reader module can be enhanced with an optional North American range or EU range antenna designed to be physically attached to the EL6e board via standoff hardware or with an external antenna via a U.FL on-board connector.
NOTE: This product is a reader module developer kit – NOT a finished RFID reader – and is meant for OEM and developers to embed into products or to be used in the creation of a new finished reader.
