Description

ThingMagic M3e HF/LF Embedded RFID Reader Module Developer Kit

The Mercury Dev Kit for ThingMagic HF/LF RFID modules contains all the components necessary to begin reading and writing RFID tags and developing RFID-enabled applications with secure access protocols, including the M3e RFID Reader Module that is equipped with a secure crypto license. The secure crypto license allows customers to ensure that encrypted iClass badges can be read now or whenever the facility is ready. Mercury API, a powerful application programming interface, provides code examples, a graphical read-write demo program, and a consistent programmatic interface for development with all ThingMagic readers and embedded module products. The Mercury API also provides a common development platform, supporting extensive variety of hardware to connect, configure, and control ThingMagic readers.

NOTE: This product is a reader module – 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. If you are interested in an existing finished reader product, check out our line of finished ThingMagic readers.
