CAEN RFID, HCE Engineering Offers Industrial RAIN RFID Kit

CAEN RFID and HCE Engineering have announced their Enigma Industrial RAIN RFID Kit. According to the two companies, the integrated solution is designed for reading RAIN RFID tags based on the GNU/Linux operating system.

HCE Engineering designs and produces industrial embedded systems and professional electronics. CAEN RFID designs and creates ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID readers and tags, and was the first company in Europe to produce and distribute UHF readers. Both companies are headquartered in Italy.

The Enigma Industrial RAIN RFID Kit comes with the Debian 8.0 operating system, as well as software for users to develop their own RAIN RFID applications. It includes a 24-volt DC power supply, standard connectors and a thin-film-transistor (TFT) panel with an RGB interface (up to 24-bit colors). The kit is intended for use with graphic terminals and human-machine interface panels with a 4.3- to 10-inch touchscreen.

The system can be expanded with input-output cards via an RS485 interface with Modbus RTU (the Modbus TCP is available via an Ethernet interface), a CAN 2.0B interface (up to 1 megabyte per second) or its own expansion connector. In addition, the system supports two RJ45 Ethernet connectors (one offering 10 or 100 megabytes per second, the other 10, 100 or 1,000 megabytes per second) and an optional IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi interface with speeds of up to 72 megabytes per second.
