RFID Reader

  • Accurate & real-time data at your fingertips, from the warehouse to the retail shelf. WNC provides a complete solution with the Inventory Management System, Portals, and the Smart Shelf™.
  • Supports multiple wireless communication interfaces and sensor systems.
  • Plug-and-play design helps you focus on system optimization instead of compatibility issues. The reader’s standard embedded Linux OS and embedded middleware provide you with postprocessed data out of the box (Ex.: the Smart Shelf™).
  • The RFID Reader features self-jamming reduction and has a sensitivity level of up to –85 dBm.
