ATEX and IECEx™ Class 1 Zone 1 certified LF 125/134 kHz Industrial Multi-frequency RFID Reader to connect 2 External Antennas

 IECEx™ zone 1 certified  The ATEX and IECEx™ Class 1 Zone 1 certified multi-frequency RFID reader which supports 125 kHz and 134 kHz FDX-B. ATEX certified transponder customers are able to improve their logistics and automation processes in hazardous explosion prone industrial areas. The new generation of the stationary robust reader can drive 2 independent operating ATEX / IECEx™ RFID antennas. This feature and the use of the High Speed Mode CF/32 provide cost effective fast and exact identification of objects. The capability of optimized adjustment of the antennas by using simple software commands eases the installation and saves costs. Beside the RS232/485 interfaces the integrated web-server makes the connection via Ethernet possible, so that the integration into existing networks could be done easily. Actually LF RFID Read Only transponders based on EM4102/EM4200 CF/64 or CF/32, FDX-B transponders are supported.
