This Gen 2 RFID reader/writer with integrated antenna is the ideal solution for both single and dual antenna applications. The reader’s electronics and a high-performance, circularly polarized antenna both reside in a single package that results in a simple, inexpensive and low profile RFID installation. Its small footprint uses less than half the real-estate of a typical reader and antenna system. A second antenna port enables 2-antenna applications.
Power over Ethernet (POE) capability allows power to be delivered over properly-equipped local area networks, eliminating expensive AC wiring installation. A standard AC/DC power converter is provided if POE is not available.
The reader communicates via the popular Alien Reader Protocol. A well-documented SDK featuring .NET and Java libraries enables easy development of custom interfaces to control the reader if desired. The reader also ships with handy Alien RFID Gateway software that enables the user to begin solution development immediately.
