Brooks Automation – more powerful RFID reader in HF evaluation kit
German RFID supplier Brooks Automation has upgraded its HF evaluation kit, adding more powerful components. This RFID kit (13.56 MHz frequency) now comes with the strong RFID reader HF80 MidRange and a wide choice of antennas and transponders.
The system centers on the HF80 MidRange reader – a device that implements ranges of up to 50 cm depending on the antenna and transponder operated with it. Its high transmitting power means it achieves satisfactory reading ranges in metallic surroundings too. Cost is also attractive, as it comes with five antenna ports and is powered over Ethernet.
The RFID evaluation kit is rounded off by four different antennas and nine transponders, matched to a variety of environments and space demands.
The system is offered in a stable plastic case. Interested users can loan the demo kit free of charge for a limited period, or are able to purchase it for 1,999 euros.
