The RFID UHF Long Range Reader – BLUEBOX is an industrial read and write device for the latest industry 4.0 and IoT applications in automation and logistics processes. Its RFID UHF controller operates in global frequency areas from 840 – 960 MHz. The reader is equipped with two external antenna ports for TNC-female antennas. We offer a wide range of compatible RFID antennas within our product portfolio.

Thanks to its IP67 protection class, the RFID UHF Long Range Reader – BLUEBOX RFID reader is resistant to rough and demanding environments in the industrial sector.

Data capturing and collection made easy with the various integrated industrial interface options. Real-Time transfer of ongoing processes can be done via the CANbus port. The RS232/485 interface option is especially developed for the direct control of machines. Wiegand is an port for the identification of access control data.

The integration to all common machines or devices is possible with the RFID UHF Long Range Reader – BLUEBOX RFID industrial reader. The optionally available M12 or RJ45 (Ethernet) connector are suitable for latest industry 4.0 standards.

Through these communication channels, it is also possible to configure the functional parameters and to upgrade the firmware. We offer a software development kit especially for our BLUEBOX series. The ‘BLUEBOX Show’ software of the SDK is foreseen to explicate these operations. Additionally we show the functions of the demo software in our demo software introduction on YouTube.
