FEIG’s new complete reader solution reads UHF RFID (RAIN RFID) EPC Class 1 Gen2, ISO 18000-6C tags, and includes the RFID antenna and reader in one housing with high-level read performance and 3-D detection. Equipped with comprehensive service software, the UHF Long Range Reader’s modern design enables it to be mounted directly in ceilings or walls for a discreet appearance, without requiring a dedicated portal or extra protection hardware.

The UHF Directional Reader Solution can now track people and assets in real time, making it ideal for industrial settings where logistical tracking is required. “If the UHF Directional Reader Solution is mounted at a company's dock doors, it can identify the direction in which a tagged box or pallet is moving,” said Klaus Schoeke, vice president of technical sales for FEIG ELECTRONICS. “Our new UHF Reader can even track the flow of patients in a crowded hospital as they move through a busy corridor, monitoring which patient is coming in or out of the surgery room.”
