RFID reader for use outdoors or in harsh environmentsThe new Ha-VIS RF-R500 RFID reader is a powerful, versatile and robust unit for applications outdoors or in harsh environments. It can capture information automatically on several hundred objects over distances of up to 16m and can immediately store data on an existing IT system such as SAP. Automatic capture minimises possible sources of error and enables the optimisation of logistics processes.

The unit is protected by a robust aluminium housing with a protection category up to IP64. A transmission power of 4W, coupled with the inclusion of four antenna connections in each device, helps to deliver wide coverage at minimum cost.

A key application for the Ha-VIS RF-R500 RFID reader is in maintenance management, where the monitoring and logistics processes can be simplified and accelerated, with considerable cost savings.

In the rail industry, for example, the reader is suited to tracking wagons entering a maintenance shed. The unit's ruggedness enables it to be mounted next to the tracks, while the powerful processor and optimised software mean information on wagons can be captured while they are in motion.
