ProxTech’s COMPACT RFID module is a very practical solution when you need to integrate a small 125 kHz RFID module into your own application.

The COMPACT module is an extremely small-sized contactless module, especially developed for integration in third parties terminals.

The COMPACT module is available for 125 kHz EM or HITAG 1/2/S and can be supplied with a wide variety of data interfaces, such as Wiegand, Clock&Data and RS232 TTL. Of course also customer-specific interfaces can be developed based on your own specific requirements.

COMPACT versions:

  • COMPACT-EM: 125 kHz RFID module for EM4x02, EM4100, EM4200 transponders or equivalent (TK4100, TK4200, Q5, …)
  • COMPACT-HT: 125 kHz RFID module for HITAG 1, HITAG 2 or HITAG S. Reads serial number of the tag.
