Aug. 5, 2016 – Featuring a cast aluminum housing and rugged M12 connectors, the Harting Ha-VIS RF-R300 mid-range UHF RFID reader promises to deliver “extremely reliable, long-lasting performance in rough environments in warehousing, transportation, manufacturing and more.”
Harting says customers can use the reader to “precisely” pinpoint which loads are on conveyor belts, which products are on the assembly line or which train is at the platform. The RF-R300 has Power over Ethernet (PoE) and eight configurable IOs, and boasts a maximum UHF output power of 500 mW at its two antenna ports, and supports several UHF antenna types. As well, the reader can support various communication protocols such as LLRP, OPC-UA and MQTT as well as customer-specific protocols, adds Harting.
