ELATEC ‘s remotely updateable, universal RFID and mobile ID readers help OEMs, Integrators and VARs provide “future proof” user authentication for access control for their customers
By providing a virtual single-part number solution that ensures worldwide compatibility and obsolescence protection, ELATEC readers reduce organisational procurement, IT and touch labor costs. This is unlike competitor products which may work with fewer transponder technologies, require on-site programming for each device, and which may significantly increase total product costs when technology or security updates are required.
ELATEC's powerful, flexible reader technology gives OEMs and VARs a real competitive advantage, both now and in the future.
Expand internationally: ELATEC readers are certified for sale in as many as 110 countries around the world.
Maximize market opportunities: ELATEC readers support nearly every card technology available, including both HF and LF, as well as emerging smartphone mobile access control solutions via BLE and NFC.
Reduce total lifecycle costs: ELATEC readers simplify inventory management with a single part number solution and can be easily updated or reconfigured without replacing inventory.
Deliver customer advantage: ELATEC readers reduce configuration expenses, extend product life, and support advanced functionality and security requirements, providing meaningful product differentiation for OEMs.
Prepare for the future: With ELATEC, you'll be ready for whatever comes next. Our readers can be reconfigured and updated remotely to address emerging opportunities and customer requirements.

ELATEC introduced the TCP3 authentication/release station, a small network appliance that enables devices without a USB port to incorporate an RFID or biometric reader, PIN pad or other form of user authentication and access control, and which supports USB 3.0 and gigabit Ethernet networks.
Most organisations extend the use of their employee ID badge or card to authenticate for applications beyond building access. This includes most multi-function printers. However, not all printers and devices have support for the direct connection of a card reader, such as those with no USB port. In these situations, the ELATEC TCP3 station extends ID card-based capabilities such as authentication for pull printing to any printing device regardless of the manufacturer, make or model.
Minimise information technology support costs
TCP3 provides unmatched security, performance, device management and flexibility"“The TCP3 station was designed to minimise information technology support costs associated with additional IP or MAC addresses while consuming only one network drop from its Host port,” said Kenneth Buck, Solutions Architect for ELATEC. “TCP3 has two Ethernet connectors designated as Host and Device. The Device port enables connection of a printer or other peripheral without requiring a second network drop.”
While primarily designed for the secure printing market, the station can also be used to control access to devices which require special operator training and certification such as sophisticated manufacturing equipment. The TCP3 station would communicate ID card data to the authenticator responsible to unlock such equipment.
“TCP3 was designed around ever-increasing network performance requirements for high speed graphic printers and engineering plotters allowing simultaneous communication of print data and printer status at gigabit speeds,” added Buck. “But whichever the application, TCP3 provides unmatched security, performance, device management and flexibility – welcome benefits for any IT network and networked devices.”
