Can you please provide some information about what would be required?




There are generally three types of cables used in an RFID installation. Coaxial cables are used to connect reader antennas to a reader. Ethernet cables connect readers to a network, unless the reader uses a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. And you might need to run power cables to a box so that you can plug in the reader above a dock door, or in some other location in your facility.

I hope this answers your question, and I look forward to seeing you at RFID Journal LIVE! in May.
