ELATEC’s RFID / Mobile ID Readers Certified for Use with iPhone and Apple Watch!

The TWN4 line of RFID card and smartphone mobile ID readers have received Apple’s Value-Added Services (VAS) Certification.

This new, additional functionality enriches the broad range of capabilities of ELATEC readers.

The new functionality enables for example EV charging service operators and e-mobility service providers to support customer identification using a NFC enabled membership Pass stored in Wallet on an iPhone or Apple Watch.

The iPhone or Apple Watch is simply presented to a TWN4 RFID reader replacing the physical RFID card currently in use.

ELATEC’s multi-technology TWN4 RFID readers uniquely support all major RFID transponder technologies worldwide, and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), but now also the Apple VAS protocol.

“We’re very pleased to have our readers certified for the use with the Apple VAS protocol and users will love to simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch up to the NFC reader for lightning fast, hassle-free interaction at e.g. EV charging stations”, said Klaus Nagel, Executive VP Global Sales.
