Siemens: Long Range RFID Reader
The SIMATIC RF290R reliably captures multiple transponder tags in production control and internal logistics applications requiring high operating ranges. The compact 13.56 MHz reader complies with the ISO 15693 air interface protocol and easily integrates into the automation or IT levels, including connections to Profinet, Profibus, Ethernet or directly with the RS-232 interface. Trigger and indication signals are enabled with onboard digital I/O. Status is indicated by four LEDs on the reader housing: operation, data transmission, transponder available and error signal.
