NFC Reader User Manual

1. Overview

The solution introduced by 3DGence Sp.z o.o. based on NFC technology aims to identify materials used in additive technology through manufacturing equipment. It consists of 2 parts, a reader placed in the additive manufacturing machine and Tags mounted on reels with thermoplastic material. Device works in NFC reader/writer (i. e. ISO/IEC 14443A/MIFARE Reader/Writer) mode which enables it to read/write information on dedicated NFC tags. The tags provided by 3DGence sp. z o.o. consists of a self-adhesive sticker, loop coil antenna and Mifare chip. The memory of the chip contains information about the material used in the additive manufacturing technology, such as: Type of material, producer, color, processing temperatures, remaining quantity etc. GENCE F380

6. Mounting guide

Module has 6 holes with 3.2mm diameter to fit M3 screw. The pads around holes are not connected to ground on the PCB. The pads diameter is 6mm, make sure screw head is not bigger than 6mm. If it is, there is a risk of short circuit and inappropriate module functioning.

If the module is meant to be attached to metal surface, there is a risk that antenna will be detuned. To prevent antenna detuning it is recommended to mount the module on non-metal surface, or apply at least 7mm spacer between the module and metal surface GENCE F380 .
