SCM Microsystems announced the launch of a new ultra high frequency desktop reader designed for the retail and specialty tracking environments.
The ARYGON AUDR-USB is compliant with ISO 1800-6 and EPC Gen 2 standards for passive ultra high frequency reader RFID. It further delivers a compact, desktop package for close-range applications such as point-of-sale (POS) checkout and on-the-shelf inventory management at an attractive price.
With a short-range reading distance, the AUDR-USB is suitable for smaller areas and more targeted reads. The reader also supports integration into existing PC-based tracking systems and POS terminals, communicating via USB device protocol.
The AUDR-USB supports all globally-used ultra high frequency bands and is EPC Class 1 Gen 2 6c and b compliant. UHF chips supported include NXP Semiconductors’ UCODE and Monza chips from IMPINJ. The AUDR-USB has also been tested to comply with FCC regulations.
A test and integration kit that includes a reader, test software and USB source code is immediately available for application developers and system integrators.
