If you need to connect 16 more antennas to your UHF reader, there is the hyperMux-16 for the UHF frequency range (868/915 MHz). The device uses 24V optically isolated IOs which are used by most PLCs as well as most UHF RFID readers to control digital inputs and outputs. This makes the integration of the multiplexer into industrial applications even easier. To give the user enough feedback during the installation of the product it has four LEDs to indicate the antenna port is currently active. The multiplexer is available in a wall-mountable aluminum housing with an optional DIN-rail mount.
The advantages of the multiplexer are the same as with its HF counterparts: Easy installation, reduced costs, and small space requirements. The compatibility of the multiplexer has been tested with a large number of UHF readers from different manufacturers. If you are interested in the result for your reader, just ask our support team.
A specialty of the hyperMux is its extended frequency range which enables it not only to be used in UHF systems worldwide but even switch signals at 2.4 GHz. As of today, it is already compatible with future RFID systems working at higher frequencies making it truly future-proof.
