Honeywell IM11

The Honeywell IM11 UHF RFID Reader Module is designed to serve market applications that require high performance at a low cost. The module enables adding UHF RFID to nearly any product, but is especially suited for use in mobile computers and tablets, fixed position readers, handheld scanners, and diagnostic equipment. With an enhanced radio frequency (RF) design, the Intermec IM11 is one of the smallest and most cost-effective high-performance UHF reader modules available today. Providing RF output power up to 1 Watt (30 dBm) and superior receiver performance, the IM11 offers exceptional flexibility for medium to long-range applications.

While the IM11 is ideal for adding embedded RFID to handheld and portable devices, its small size and high performance can enable nearly any device to take advantage of the capability of RFID to automate workflows and provide enhance customer services.

The IM11 module is based on the latest RF technology to provide a superior read rate with low power consumption and low-voltage operation, helping to extendthe battery life of mobile devices. The IM11 also supports a wide frequency range, 860-928 MHz, enabling the module to be certified in nearly any regulatory region.

The IM11 uses the same flexible and easy to use Basic Reader Interface (BRI) API that all of Intermec’s RFID readers support, allowing developers to use the Intermec Developer Library (IDL) tools for Java, .NET, and C# environments and get the module up and running quickly.

Intermec is a pioneer in developing RFID readers and technology. With the IM11 UHF RFID Reader Module, Intermec takes the pain out of the design and test processes required to develop an RFID reader. The small form factor, high performance, and ease of integration allows customers to add standardized UHF RFID to nearly any device, enabling manufacturers and integrators to shrink their development time and get their product to market faster and at a lower cost for an improved return on investment.

A full developer’s kit is available to help OEM’s begin software and hardware integration and perform preliminary testing of antennas and performance.
