The Lepton9x4 (Model R9104C), an embedded reader of the easy2read© product line, is an ultra compact reader for low power, high performance RAIN RFID applications.
With programmable output power from 10 dBm to 30 dBm, the reader can detect tags at more than 5 m of distance (depending on antenna and tag dimensions).
Due to its low power consumption, the module is specifically designed to be easily integrated in battery powered devices.
The radio frequency core of the module is based on the Impinj E910 IC that permits to achieve fast reading speed and to be used in dense reader and dense tag environments for top-class rated performances.
The compactness of the device allow to embed the Lepton9x4 inside industrial handhelds, smartphone accessories and other compact form factor devices.
The Lepton9x4 complies with and can operate in both European and US regulatory environments and, thanks to its multiregional capabilities, it’s ideal for integration in devices requiring compliance to different geographical regions.
The Lepton9x4 is designed on the basis of the Lepton9 with the aim to facilitate the integration for those who prefer to use connectors instead of automatic manufacturing required by the SMD form factor. The Lepton9x4 has also a wider power supply voltage range to permit to connect it directly to battery packs.
