PITreader Card Unit – Greater Flexibility with New RFID Transponders Available in 2 Formats

March 1, 2023

PITreader card unit – Greater flexibility due to new RFID transponders in card and sticker format.

PITreader (S) card units offer the same wide application area you have come to expect from PITreader (S). However, the transponder type is new. The PITreader card and PITreader sticker use RFID transponders in card or sticker format. The company’s existing RFID-capable cards, plus the familiar PITreader keys, can also be used for authentication, offering you even greater flexibility when choosing the transponder.

One clever feature of the PITreader cards is the transparent window, which means the LED status indicator on the PITreader is visible at all times, even when a card is held to the machine. Of course, the PITreader card unit can also be used in combination with the small controllers PNOZmulti 2 or the automation system PSS4000 as PITmode flex or PITmode flex visu, for access permission and safe operating mode selection.
