Impinj has announced the release of its Speedway Revolution RFID reader, the newest in its Speedway line that features Iminj’s Autopilot technology.
According to a press release by Impinj, RFID system performance depends upon a number of ever-changing environmental conditions, such as RF interference levels, tag density in the reader field and ambient RF noise, so users configure readers for worst-case scenarios, compromising optimum performance in the process.
The Speedway Revolution claims to take care of this problem with three new functions:
Autoset senses levels of RF noise and interference and automatically selects the appropriate performance setting.
Low duty cycle enables the Speedway save energy by transmitting only when tags are in the field of view.
Dynamic antenna switching enables the Speedway to sense where tags are in the field and automatically selects the antenna best suited for reading each tag based on its relative position.
The Speedway Revolution comes in both a four-port configuration priced at $1,585 and a two-port configuration priced at $1,385.
