Article No.

The QuasarMX is an HF RFID reader/writer for demanding industrial applications, where high reading reliability, speed, and extensive special tag features are needed. Highlights include a reading rate of up to 100 tag IDs/sec and reading and writing data on tags without needing to address them individually. This allows applications directly at conveyor belts, in production machinery, and in electric control cabinets. 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.
