New UHF RFID Smart Reader Operates Out of the Box
RFRain's RFR-RAIN-4-SMART device comes with a built-in reader, a microprocessor and an IP address to send data directly to a cloud-based server, thus preventing the need for complex or costly infrastructure installations.
"Were not just extracting data but pushing it to your software so it looks like yours," Hanna says. For instance, a user could set up parameters to the system to prompt alerting. If an asset were found to be missing from an expected zone, the software could issue an alert. Users can rename tag IDs, set up zones and customize alerts.
The reader is relatively small, Akaoui says, measuring 7 inches by 5 inches and with a thickness of 1.75 inches. What's more, it can operate autonomously. "Your data is stored on the reader as well," he states, so if the Internet system goes down, or if security needs to prevent cloud connections, the data can still be captured locally. The reader can also be mobile, attached to a forklift or other moving vehicle, and can be connected to the server via Wi-Fi.
"We provide end-user applications [for which] no RFID knowledge is needed," Akaoui. However, the technology company expects many of its customers to be industry experts who offer integrated solutions.
Companies first began testing the new solution around March of this year, with many still in the piloting stage. "We've gotten quite a bit of buzz about it," Akaoui says, from health-care companies, airports, airlines, manufacturers, distributors and school systems.
RFRain previously launched its IMS inventory-management-in-a-box solution for $3,500 (see Startup Offers Low-Cost RFID System That Can Be Self-Installed).
