TagMaster, producer of RFID solutions for railway applications, announced that it will launch its new HR-2 handheld RFID reader at the upcoming InnoTrans, International Trade Fair for Transport Technology, in Berlin.
The device is designed for tough environments, such as those found in railway applications, where ID-tags need to be read, verified and recorded. In railway applications, tags are permanently installed on trains, wagons and along the tracks, consequently a portable device is required to verify or maintain these installations.
The HR-2 portable handheld RFID reader provides read/write capability for TagMaster’s range of 2.45 GHz ID-tags, and has been developed around its existing LR-series hardware platform and Linux operating system. The HR-2 includes an Ethernet interface, which allows direct access to the built-in web interface where the user can adjust settings and gain access to stored event logs.
InnoTrans is the International Railway Transportation Exhibition held every two years in Berlin in Germany. This year’s event takes place between the 21st and 24th of September 2010 and TagMaster are participating on the joint Swedish Rail Group (SWERIG) stand, which is located in Hall 4.2 Stand No.223
