The PulsarMX is a UHF Mid Range Reader for applications with a medium read range between 1 and 3 m and up to 100 transponders simultaneously in the field. Its main applications are in container tracking, reading data from sensor tags (e.g. temperature sensors), and on a conveyor belt. Due to its low cost, the device opens new possibilities for applications that were not feasible before.

With its compact dimensions of only 130 x 106 x 55 mm and almost no heat build-up, the reader can be integrated into closed cabinets and other machinery. The device communicates using USB or Ethernet. With the optically isolated Inputs and 24V DC outputs, you can directly connect light barriers, LED lights, and other equipment to the reader.

For easy and fast testing of the product, there is a free Windows Demo Software to test all features of the device. If you need to integrate the reader into your own software, there is also a Java SDK, a .NET Library, and a Python lib for accessing the device on all operating systems.
