Stationary RFID Reader

The RFID reader and antenna accurately identifies animals in stationary situations. The range is usually about 0.5-1.0 m. The data can be outputted using RS-232, Ethernet, or Wi-Fi to a stationary computer, or optionally, the output can be logged and tracked over the Internet using the optional data logging hardware provided by C-Lock Inc.

Description

This RFID reader is much less sensitive against electrical interference and metal in the environment because it uses new patent-pending technology. In combination with the patented auto-tuning function it offers easy installation and integration in all types of applications. In addition to the standard RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces there are optional Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth modules for communication with a CPU through any modern communication technology.

An outstanding new feature is the applicability to multiplex antennas through either 4 or 8 channels. Multiplexing offers an economic solution for many applications.

Another feature is the patent-pending Integrated Diagnosis Function (IDF), which allows on-site diagnosis for evaluating the noise situation without additional hardware like oscilloscopes or spectrum analyzers.

The RFID is especially designed for continuous operation in feeding stations, scales or sorting gates – even under worst conditions. The wide operating voltage range from 12 to 24 Volt provides more flexibility regarding the power supply. The wireless synchronization ensures the best HDX and FDX reading performance in multi-reader applications. The optional wired-synchronization module ensures the best possible HDX performance even under worse conditions.

The 134.2 kHz RFID is compatible to the ISO standard 11784/5 and therefore reads all FDX-B and HDX transponders with a very good reading range.
