We at JADAK understand that good products do not require users to be experts, they make things easier, and reduce our perception of risk. Our customers are experts in designing the next revolutionary medical diagnostics technologyimproving patient safety in the operating roomincreasing efficiency in transportation, industrial, and retail applications. JADAK’s  well-trusted ThingMagic brand and access to RFID experts can significantly help you optimize your RFID enabled application and provide the necessary life-cycle support. Consequently, we have developed 2 new products that simplify the RFID integration process.


  • The adoption of UHF RFID technology has been impeded by the perceived high cost of RFID tags compared to barcode labels.
  • The technical complexity and risk of undertaking the design effort.
  • Managing changes inherent in adopting an evolving technology.


JADAK is introducing two new products to its ThingMagic® RFID portfolio, the EL6e smart module and the Elara plug-and-play USB reader. These new products are based on the proven ThingMagic Nano module and are designed to simplify RAIN® RFID integration by adding interface and operability features that allow engineers to minimize design efforts and quickly implement RFID in any application that requires mid- or short-range read distance. Both products feature autonomous workflows permitting rapid creation of solutions without RFID expertise, the use of SDKs and integration tools, and are among the first products in the industry to support a new developer-friendly interface between applications and RAIN RFID readers, the RAIN Communication Interface (RCI).


JADAK has provided the fastest path to migrating from finished RFID readers to modules with our ThingMagic IZAR and Sargas readers, by reducing development time by 40% compared to the closest industry competitor. The EL6e and Elara products are the next step in reducing the design time and complexity for RFID.

The product availability will be announced in January 2019.
