The ION (Model R4300P), is the top-of-the-range portal reader of the easy2read family from CAEN RFID.

CAEN RFID has carefully designed the device taking into account customer requests and on-field experience on RFID installations. The result is not only an UHF reader, it's a unique combination of outstanding RFID reading performances, computing power and communication capabilities.

Based on an embedded HW architecture (x86) and standard operating system (Linux), the ION eases the development of custom software and solutions.

The on-board computing power and connectivity remove the need for an external PC and related cabling. This results in deployment and operations cost savings, thus reducing the total cost of ownership of installed devices. The ION is best suited for complex AutoID scenarios, where the information can be collected and fed directly to the reader from multiple sources such as Smart Card readers, Barcode readers, GPS and other in-field sensors. All data can be handled locally through data buffering, filtering and aggregation, in order to directly provide decision-making data to higher level Business Intelligence processes. The same data can also trigger local actuators and screen displays for in-field real-time processes in a standalone mode.

The presence on board of an optional integrated GPRS modem, together with its compact and versatile form factor, allow to use it in any worldwide installation requiring RFID usage in remote areas.

The ION complies with and can operate in different regulatory environments (Europe, US, Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan).

Development Kit Contains:

The R4300P (ION) reader development kit is a complete RFID set up, for a quick implementation of RFID solutions. It includes:
  • n. 1 R4300P (ION) RFID UHF Portal Reader
  • n. 1 Power Supply
  • n. 1 Circular polarized antenna (in Mod. R4300PDK)
  • n. 1 GPRS antenna (in Mod. R4300PDKGPR)
  • n. 1 Set of Labels
  • n. 1 A927Z Temperature Logger Tag
  • n. 1 RT0005 Temperature Logger Tag
  • n. 1 Antenna cable (2.5 m)
In order to get started with the kit, it is possible to use Caen's application "EASY Controller" that allows the user to get started with the UHF RFID technology without wasting time with the communication protocol details. In addition, an SDK, also available, includes libraries for Visual C++, JAVA, and Microsoft .Net.
