Original Press Release:

High-performance UHF RFID 4 Field Reader now Available with M12 and M8 Connections

Following the introduction of the compact, robust Ha-VIS RF-R3x0 reader product range with two antenna connections, 500 mW power output and comprehensive software functions, HARTING has now expanded on the powerful 4 Field Reader. The Ha-VIS RFID Reader RF-R400 provides concentrated RFID performance with robust M8 and M12 connectors.

Network, power supply, RS232, two digital trigger signal inputs and four digital signal outlets are available via circular connectors. Each with a maximum power output of 2W, the four antenna connections remain in the usual SMA format. The new reader also meets the requirements of the industrial and rail market.

The usual HARTING reader functions such as Action on EPC, where the reader can process scanning results autonomously and respond by switching outlets, are also included in the reader’s comprehensive software provision.

In terms of software, the RF-R400 is naturally fully compatible with the powerful GS1® ALE 1.1 based HARTING middleware. The new reader is supported by both the server version, Ha-VIS Middleware and the embedded version for the RF-R350, enabling easy raw data processing, which saves unnecessary expense in the backend system.
