The QuasarLR is an HF long-range RFID reader/writer for demanding industrial applications, where high reading reliability, high read ranges, and extensive special tag features are needed.
Highlights include an RF power of up to 4 W which allows a read range of up to 600 mm with the right antenna (e.g. our Lambda40 Loop Antenna). This allows even difficult applications directly at conveyor belts, in production machinery, and in laundry applications.
The communication to the host system is done via USB or an optional Ethernet port. To facilitate its integration into machines and to allow ease of control via PLCs the device offers optically isolated 24 V DC Inputs and Outputs.
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.
