CSL - CS468
Fixed 16-Port UHF RFID Reader/Writer


CS468 16-Port Reader is an Ethernet POE connected UHF EPC C1 G2 RFID reader with long read range and a high read rate. This 16 port reader has fine grain control of RF output from the 16 ports that enables very high speed antenna switching, making it be suitable for fine grain multiport operations including smart-shelf for retails, document control, multi-lanes reading for vehicle tracking, and applications where continuous monitoring or periodic inventory of large number of segmented space is needed. With the same API as CS203 integrated reader, the application development time can be greatly reduced and leading to faster time to market.

Features

  • 16 ports reader with long read range and high read rate
  • Fine grain control of RF output for fast antenna switching
  • Dense Reader Mode (DRM) available
  • Global frequency coverage
  • Ethernet connectivity, with POE (Power-over-Ethernet)
  • Same API as that of CS203 integrated reader
  • 2 mounting optins with multiplexer, piggy-backed or side by side
  • 12 Month Return to Base Warranty
