RFID Installation Flexibility With Caen ION


Caen ION Has On-Board Computing & Great Connectivity.

Many applications for RFID involve reading RFID tags in a range of locations, not just in office or other commercial premises. Sometimes there is a need for a mobile unit, able to operate without connection to a local computer.

caenionreaderThe Caen ION UHF RFID reader is designed for just this type of work. With its own on-board, Linux computer, connectors for 4 antennae, and connectivity by ethernet, wifi or GPRS, the CAEN ION can be deployed in a range of formats, including in vehicles to provide a mobile RFID reading capability. The reader has an IP42 rating, meaning it is suited to indoor applications. It does all this in a compact casing just 275mm x 155mm x 39mm, meaning it can be easily installed in customer service locations such as retail counters and check-in / check-out desks. Depending on the antennae used, the reader can handle reading tags at distances of a few centimetres  up to 7 or 8 metres.
