This UHF Gen 2 Fixed RFID Reader/Writer features Autopilot which eases deployment and maintenance. It also features an autoset function which continuously optimizes the reader’s configuration for the best, most reliable performance. A low duty cycle reduces RF interference, power consumption and energy costs. Dynamic antenna switching improves throughput and helps the reader work more efficiently. This RFID reader also delivers increased application flexibility via support for Power over Ethernet (PoE), which simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces cost by eliminating the need for AC outlet installation at read points.
