The RFID UHF Short Range Reader – BLUEBOX is a new reading and writing device from the iDTRONIC BLUEBOX series.  Industry 4.0 and IoT applications require smart solutions and easy integration. The compact and compact design in the dimensions 12.0 × 12.2 × 3.7 cm is ideal for industrial applications within Logistics, Robotics or Assembly Line Production.

Interface options for various connectivity options

The RFID UHF Short Range Reader – BLUEBOX has an  RS-232 COM interface. This serial port is ideal for interfacing with monitors, point-of-sale terminals, gauges or printers. Furthermore, the device is equipped with an  RS-485 interface. The asynchronous serial connection is suitable for data communication over long distances. It represents a bidirectionally usable bus system that can be operated with up to 128 devices on one bus.

Excellent technical requirements for your applications

The Industrial RFID reader is equipped with the industrial M12 plug connection and has a power supply of 10 – 36 volts. The output line is up to 27 dBm / 500 mW. Performance can be adjusted from 10 dBm in 1 dBm increments. The RFID reader is therefore ideally suited for automation processes in various applications.

High reading ranges through built-in antenna

The RFID UHF Short Range Reader – BLUEBOX is equipped with an internal antenna. The reader achieves with the antenna a high reading range of up to 3 meters.

Ultra high frequency for a variety of transponders

The RFID reader is standardly equipped with the UHF Frequency 865 – 868 MHz (ETSI). Optionally, the RFID reader can also be operated with a UHF frequency 902 – 928 MHz (FCC). Both frequencies support the standard ISO 18000-6C (EPC Class 1 Generation 2).
