M6E-Micro RFID Reader

ThingMagic's Micro-LTE low-profile embedded RFID reader optimized for small tag populations

Image of ThingMagic's M6e RFID ReaderThingmagic's Micro-LTE is designed to meet the demands of high-performance RFID handheld, mobile and stationary readers and is optimized for applications that require reading small tag populations. This embedded UHF RFID reader offers two antenna ports and supports the ability to transmit up to +30 dBm for demanding applications. The edge connections for signals, power, and RF allow the module to be soldered directly to a motherboard as a standard component. The on-board connectors allow the module to be mated to a motherboard as an add-on option. Micro-LTE has a tag read rate of 50 tags per second.
