ThingMagic Elara (UHF)- UHF RAIN RFID Desktop Reader

ThingMagic Elara is a plug-and-play USB reader which enables easy addition of RFID into mid- and short-range applications. 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 shortrange 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.
