ThingMagic Nano - Embedded SMT RFID Module

Driving down the Total Cost for Embedding RFID in Handheld Devices and Consumables Authentication

Introduction

ThingMagic Nano delivers the smallest form factor for a Mercury Series embedded UHF RFID module with very low power consumption and is ideal for battery operated, low cost, small form-factor portable readers. ThingMagic Nano’s wide RF output range (0 dBm to +27 dBm) is important for the read/write requirements for RFID-enabled printers and tag commissioning stations. It features a surface mount package designed for the efficiency of SMT manufacturing, driving down the total cost for embedding RFID in volume applications, including handheld devices, consumables authentication, device configuration and access control.

  • Small size: 22 mm L x 26 mm W x 3.0 mm H (0.866 in L x 1.024 in W x 0.118 in H)
