Wednesday 15 October 2003 09:00 CET | News

INSIDE Contactless has launched its much awaited new generation of couplers: M210-2G and M220-2G (Proximity couplers), and M300-2G (Long range coupler).

Most of the 2Gs new features include the ability to communicate with FeliCa chips, support additional application code download, facilitate reader customization, and enable most 13.56 MHz card communication on a single reader infrastructure. The M210-2G low cost, low power proximity coupler comes in a small footprint with an on-board detachable antenna. It is compliant with ISO 14443 A&B, ISO 15693 and can also communicate with FeliCas chips. The communication distance goes up to 6 cm and includes cryptographic security management for applications such as physical and logical access control, reader migration from contact to contactless cards, and retail. The M220-2G is another multi-standard coupler, similar to the M210-2G but with higher performance and a separate 50 ohm antenna which can be placed in a separate location for integration flexibility. It is ideally suited for applications such as mass transit for Coupler-Transponder with a communication distance of up to 15 cm. The M220-2G is therefore commonly deployed in high performance systems and applications. The M300?2G is a cost effective long range coupler, compliant with ISO 15693 standard and specifically designed to provide long communication distance of up to 1.5 meters with contactless chips. It also comes with a tuning function and antenna tuning verification which eliminates the need for manual tuning and protects the antenna operation in abnormal conditions. Applications which utilize the M300-2G are RFID, Facilities and Asset management, Parking, Toll-gates and Identification. The couplers have successfully passed the worldwide certifications such as: I.D.A certification for Singapore, FCC for the USA, CE for Europe, RSS210 for Canada and are already commercially available. Singapore is one of the first markets to deploy the M210-2G.
