Wireless module reader RFID rugged Temperature RAIN

POWERCAST Extended-Temperature RAIN RFID Reader Module is designed to integrate into high-temperature RFID readers that need to reliably operate in the extreme conditions present in automotive, industrial, outdoor, energy and other applications. Module reliably communicates with and power RFID tag devices in RFID systems operating in extreme temperatures, where other readers could overheat and fail. It can operate from -40°C to +85°C, where most reader modules can operate from -20°C to 70°C. Module includes Impinj E710 reader chip to provide RAIN RFID read/write capability and IoT device connectivity. The technology enables RFID readers that can efficiently identify, locate, and authenticate large groups of tagged items quickly. Module’s RF protocol adheres to EPCglobal UHF Class 1 Gen 2 / ISO 18000-63 RFID, while it interfaces to other embedded electronics systems via USB or UART communication lines, and is powered from externally applied 5V dc power.
