M6E-M Micro RFID Reader


ThingMagic's M6E-M meets the demands of high performance RFID handheld, mobile, and stationary readers

The 2-port micro delivers the form-factor, efficiency, RF power, and flexibility needed to embed UHF RFID in your best-in-class portable and hand-held applications. Its low power consumption fits battery-operated applications and its wider RF output range (-5 dBm to +30 dBm) is a key requirement for RFID-enabled printers, tag commissioning stations, and point-of-sales readers. Edge connections and small size (46 mm x 26 mm x 4 mm), allow the micro to be soldered directly to a motherboard as a standard component. The on-board connectors allow the module to be mated to a motherboard. The micro reads 750 tags/second.
