125kHz/134.2kHz & 13.56MHz Contactless Reader/Writer
Version C0
Version C1
Elatec’s TWN4 Family allows users to read and write to almost any 125kHz / 134.2kHz and 13.56MHz tags and/or
labels – it supports all major transponders from various suppliers like ATMEL, EM, ST, MIFARE NXP, TI, HID, LEGIC,
etc. and ISO standards like ISO14443A including ISO14443A-4 (T=CL), ISO14443B including ISO14443B-4 (T=CL),
ISO15693, ISO18092 / ECMA-340 (NFC).
The TWN4 MultiTech Nano LEGIC 42 is designed for integration into machines or any other device to be used with
external antenna (125/134.2kHz,13.56MHz or both). The powerful hardware allows the extension of supported
transponders to meet your individual request.
