The QuasarMF is an industrial RFID Reader for transponders that communicate using the ISO14443A and the MIFARE® protocols MIFARE Classic®, MIFARE Ultralight®. It is one of a few readers worldwide using MIFARE technology that has a single-ended antenna output which allows using any HF RFID antenna instead of specially designed MIFARE antennas. This makes it even possible to connect the reader to a multiplexer and read tags from several antennas sequentially.
The communication options include USB as well as Ethernet. To facilitate its integration into machines and to allow ease of control via PLCs the device offers optically isolated 24 V IOs.
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.
