 Product Description

ThingMagic Elara USB RFID Reader

The ThingMagic Elara USB RFID Reader enables easy addition of RFID into applications that require a plug-and-play desktop or fixed mount reader. Based on the industry-proven ThingMagic Nano module, the Elara adds interface and operability features that allow engineers to minimize design efforts and quickly implement RFID in any application that requires mid- or short-range read distance. The Elara 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.
