Embedded Ultra Compact RAIN RFID Reader
The Quark (Model R1230CB), an embedded reader of the easy2read© product line, is a multiregional ultra-compact reader for low-power, high performance RAIN RFID applications.
With programmable output power in 15 steps from 9dBm to 23dBm, the reader can detect tags at more than 1 mt 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 as well as powered directly by a standard USB port.
The radio frequency core of the module permits to achieve fast reading and to be used in dense reader and dense tag environments for top-class rated performances.
The compactness of the device and the board-to-board connector allow to embed the R1230 inside the new small form factor industrial handhelds, smartphone accessories, small USB dongles and other compact form factor devices.
The R1230 complies with and can operate in both European and US regulatory environments and due to its multiregional capabilities, it is ideal for integration in devices requiring compliance to different geographical regions.
