CAEN RFID Intros Fixed Reader for Industrial and Outdoor Installations

CAEN RFID has announced that its Proton reader comes with four antenna ports capable of a 31.5 dBm maximum power, enabling users to build RFID portals for long-range reading. Its compact form factor makes it easy to install, according to the company, and its IP65 protection permits installations in outdoor or harsh environments. Featuring Power-over-Ethernet, RS232 and GPIOs via industry-standard M12 connectors, the Proton is suitable for industrial automation and Industry 4.0 solutions, the firm indicates.

The Proton is based upon an embedded Linux platform and can be configured using an internal Web interface. Systems integrators can customize the reader's behavior by installing Java code that, with access to all RFID features and interfaces, enables full customization.

The Proton reader complies with and can operate in both European and U.S. regulatory environments. Due to its multiregional capabilities, the device is intended for RFID solutions requiring compliance with different geographical regions.
