Overview

This active RFID network reader provides all networking needs in a compact device which can be configured to serve as a Wi-Fi reader, an externally powered LAN reader or a LAN PoE reader. The wireless reader detects and decodes RF signals from compatible Wavetrend RFID tags.

The network reader offers two operating modes: Autopoll or Store Poll modes. In Autopoll mode, the reader will return tag data of any tags in range andwill send IP packets when a tag is read. It provides on-board real time clock; when in Store Mode each tag event is recorded, time stamped and logged in the readers internal memory. It is able to hold the information for up to 1000 individual tags. This can be downloaded in a single IP packet upon request which dramatically reduces IP traffic in high tag density deployments.

This advanced RFID network reader supports built in business rules to override the Store Poll settings and allows users to set alarms such as tag arrival, tag departure, tag is being tampered with and tag is in motion.

Typical read ranges of tags with various antennas

(Distances may vary depending on the ambient RF environmentand site configurations and may not match those stated in this sheet. Read ranges will generally be greater outdoors than indoors. With specialist antennas, ranges in excess of 500m can be achieved.)
