HID RAIN RFID Reader
HID RAIN RFID Reader – HID has announced its first RAIN RFID reader modules featuring TSL technology and STORM command protocol to simplify embedded software integration.
RAIN RFID is a wireless technology that connects billions of everyday items to the internet, enabling businesses and consumers to identify, locate, authenticate, and engage items and personnel.
The modules enable developers to create customised reader hardware designs that take full advantage of the superior performance of Impinj E710 and E910 reader chips and their ability to support next-generation RAIN tags.
The HID TSL RAIN RFID reader module family includes 3 options for designing compact fixed readers, as well as readers used in mobile and battery-operated handheld and wearable devices.
Applications include asset tracking/inventory management, automation, safety and compliance, personnel tracking, and authentication, in industries ranging from retail, healthcare, and hospitality to transport and logistics and warehouse and distribution.
The family includes:
* TSL 3117 with a single antenna port, based on the Impinj E710 reader chip.
* TSL 3417 with four antenna ports, based on the Impinj E710 reader chip.
* TSL 3419 with four antenna ports, based on the Impinj E910 chip for Enterprise-grade fixed readers.
* UHF RFID reader modules.
“There has been a gap in the market for reliable, high-performance UHF RFID reader modules that mid-volume manufacturers can integrate efficiently into their products,” said Dr. David Evans, vice president, Technology Solutions Business Unit.
“We are meeting this need with a family of modules that build on over 2 decades of mobile RFID hardware experience to extract more performance into a smaller form factor than ever before.”
According to HID, its TSL reader modules exceed the read range, reader sensitivity, and tag throughput of alternative modules in a compact, easy-to-integrate form factor. Key features of these modules are a result of a combination of TSL RFID design experience and Impinj’s reader chip and include:
* High sensitivity (>-90dbm)
* Fast tag acquisition rate (>1300 tags/sec)
* Up to 50 per cent lower power consumption than previous generation chipsets
* Broad compatibility with latest generation UHF sensor chips which include the measurement of temperature, humidity, strain, acceleration, and more.
