CAEN RFID Intros Fixed Reader for Retail, Warehousing

CAEN RFID has announced the availability of its Quattro fixed UHF RFID reader intended for retail and warehousing installations. The Quattro reader has four antenna ports capable of 31.5 dBm of power, enabling users to build RFID portals for long-range reading.

The device's slim form factor makes it easy to install, the company reports, even when limited space is available. It offers a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and USB communication interface to simplify installation, both for large and single read point solutions. The PoE capability allows users to provide power to and communicate with the reader via a single cable.

The USB host port, combined with the internal computing architecture, permits users to connect USB peripherals such as barcode scanners, keyboards and printers, which the company says makes the Quattro reader a versatile identification platform. The Quattro is based on an embedded Linux platform and is configurable using an internal Web-based interface.

System integrators can customize the reader's behavior by installing Java code that, with access to all RFID features and interfaces, permits full customization. The reader complies with and can operate in both European and U.S. regulatory environments. Due to its multiregional capabilities, the Quattro is suitable for RFID solutions requiring compliance with different geographical regions' mandates.
