This high performance, integrated RFID portal Reader combines an industry-leading EPCglobal UHF Class 1 Gen 2 RFID reader with a highly innovative Dual-Linear Phased Array (DLPA) antenna to create a sleek, small form factor, light weight and easy-to-install package. The high performance portal is meant for use in doorways, hallways or docks, and can also provide general zone coverage, for applications in offices, institutions such as healthcare facilities, for retail, or for attendance or access control applications and is ideal for monitoring pallets, equipment, files or people.

A pioneering feature of this portal is the ability of the RFID reader to automatically optimize the reader’s operation for best read results in its current environment and to continuously make adjustments in a changing environment so that results remain optimal. Further, the reader employs dynamic antenna switching which allows it to determine tag location and orientation and automatically focus more attention to where the tags are actually located, thus allowing for greater efficiency and throughput.

In addition to the compact size, the integrated RFID portal Reader supports Power-over-Ethernet, (PoE) providing further cost savings and ease of deployment. Multiple mounting options are provided including keyhole slots, clearance holes, and threaded fasteners for a standard, off-the-shelf VESA mount that are used with flat screen TV mounting brackets or stands.
