Compact RAIN RFID Desktop Reader
The Tile (model R1250I), desktop reader of the easy2read© product line, is a RAIN RFID reader with integrated antenna for short to medium range applications.
The reader is powered and controlled directly by an USB cable, thus allowing to read RAIN RFID tags in an easy desktop environment.
Thanks to its compact size, the Tile reader is the perfect choice for various applications such as point-of-sales, document tracking, tag programming stations, access control and so on. It can also be used as a building block for smart shelves and smart displays.
The Tile reader supports the HID profile (native keyboard emulation) allowing to interact directly with legacy applications, office automation SW or any other generic solution requiring manual input.
Being compliant with both European and US regulatory environments, the Tile reader allows installations in various countries worldwide as needed by retailers, forwarders, warehouses and other global organizations.
The core components of the Tile reader are the CAEN RFID QuarkUp module, a top performing ultra-compact UHF RFID module, and the Quad, a compact circular polarized antenna designed by CAEN RFID.
