The iDTRONIC Embedded RFID Readers of the M890 series are high-performance RFID readers. Thanks to its small size
and the component arrangement that can be installed on one side, it enables embedding in various applications and devices.

With its state-of-the-art microcontroller and the latest HF transceiver technology, the Reader series enables the user to read and write almost all 13.56 MHz transponders. There are 5 different configurations available which support the common RFID standards such as ISO 14443A/B (T=CL), ISO 14443-4, ISO 15693, ISO 11784/11785 and ISO 18092 / ECMA-340 (NFC), ISO 18000-3.

The embeddable RFID reader M890 has an external antenna connection. iDTRONIC Professional RFID
offers a wide range of antennas for every purpose. Read ranges of up to 10 cm (depending on transponder type).

The RFID module M890 is available with TTL, USB VCP, USB HID, RS232/485 and PC/SC interface.
In low-power mode, the M890 consumes less than 1 mA.

The hardware of iDTRONIC contains a useful SDK for the development of controller-, Linux- or Windows-based applications. In addition to documentation, command protocols and source codes, the SDK includes a Windows-based demo application with full functionality on all supported HF-RFID standards.
