Marchi Engenharia has announced the launch of a new brand of radio frequency identification equipment under the brand name Via Onda. The M-ID40 module and antennas are the first devices developed by the company to reach the market.

The M-ID40 is a UHF RFID reader that operates in the frequency bands established by Anatel, from 902 to 907 MHz and from 915.1 to 928 MHz. It features Wi-Fi, USB and 10/100Mbps Ethernet communication—which, according to the manufacturer, allows greater flexibility for applications. The Via Onda reader is designed to control vehicle and people access, inventory management, hotel and hospital layout, the collision safety of cargo vehicles and pedestrian trampling, and inventory of goods.

With four independent antennas, the M-ID40 is able to identify the antenna responsible for reading a particular RFID tag, and to forward that data in GS1's standard EPC Gen2 format. It can work autonomously by activating one or more of its four digital outputs, and can be configured via smartphone.

Reading can be started from a trigger, such as a presence or bypass sensor, properly connected to the interface connector on the back of the equipment. It can also operate as a mediator of commands handled and sent by Via Onda's management software.

The MID-40 module has integrated communication capability consisting of Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, USB or 10/100Mbps Ethernet. The power supply (DC 16 ~ 24v), with maximum consumption of 3A and power of 72w, can be made with external AC/DC or vehicle batteries. The MID-40 also has an input and three digital outputs, plus a specific output for audible alarms.
