Intermec - IF61
UHF 4 port Intelligent Fixed Reader /Writer

The IF61 is a Smart RFID Reader capable of embedding enterprise-class edge server software in lieu of requiring an on-premise PC. With advanced network services built into the IF61, this greatly facilitates enterprise architecture design in configuring a highly secure, scalable, and reliable RFID infrastructure.

With the powerful combination of an Intel Celeron M 600 MHz processor and up to 1 GB of optional memory, the Intermec™ IF61 Enterprise Reader is the smartest RFID reader available, capable of running complex RFID applications, delivering faster processing and localized intelligence.

By hosting applications written in Java, JavaScript or C# .Net., the IF61 is able to filter, store and manipulates information from tags and forward to a server in a required format, while monitoring external sensors and controlling audible and visual indicators. For example, the IF61 can be programmed to store a day’s worth of shipping manifests, compare the pallet tags it reads against the manifests in its memory, and drive a peripheral device to issue a visual or audible signal of a correctly or incorrectly loaded pallet.

The IF61 is the only RFID reader to provide a localized workbench to load, edit and run JavaScript as a standard feature. The workbench allows programmers to test business logic directly on the reader, enabling faster application development while utilizing fewer resources.

SmartSystems™ Foundation, standard on the IF61, provides a single, convenient console for quick set-up and configuration of all of the settings contained in the device. Administrators can change device settings, send firmware upgrades, update software applications, and execute other changes directly from the console to save time and significantly cut costs.
