Kathrein RFID Launches New Long-Range Readers

Kathrein RFID, a manufacturer of radio frequency identification systems, has launched a new generation of its RFID readers: the ARU3000 and RRU4000 series. The new readers allow for fast vehicle identification, provide options for connectivity to a company's back-end system, and can connect using a PoE+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2G or 3G mobile interface.

The new readers can also connect to additional sensors, such as LNPR cameras, via an Ethernet switch. The company's main development target was to reduce installation and infrastructure costs, Kathrein RFID reports.

An integrated Linux operating system allows for software-based integration into existing parking infrastructure solutions, such as Skidata.

In addition, Kathrein's new readers are designed to boost the safety and efficiency of traffic and freight management. The solution has an integrated NXP Semiconductors Ucode DNA Security Transponder Chipset, and can also be used for tolling plazas, for free-flow access and with a barrier or gate solution.

According to the company, the ARU3000 and RRU4000 series can be utilized for smart-city applications. Both readers enable cities and operators to save on infrastructure costs, Kathrein reports.
