This RFID Antenna Hub provides a low cost alternative for the creation of a large, contiguous RFID read zone by enabling from 5 to 32 antennas to be attached to a single GAO 236015 – UHF Gen 2 RFID Reader/Writer with 4 Antenna Ports*. The system is an ideal solution for applications such as RFID smart shelves or document tracking applications. Installation is quick and easy with included antenna virtualization software, GPIO Adapter Kit (sold separately) and system feedback including LED status indicators and software providing diagnostics and alerts.

*note: each Hub can control up to 8 readers.
