UFS Compact Reader


The HERMOS UFS COMPACT READER is a read/write device for UHF transponders according to ISO 18000-6C. Due to its small design, the COMPACT Reader is ideally suited for direct operation at the reading point. It is equipped with an integrated antenna and can optionally be operated with 2 additional external antennas. Low installation and cabling effort is achieved by using Ethernet (PoE). The operating states are signaled by 3 integrated status LEDs. Optional 4 additional LEDs and a buzzer can be used by the user to visualize application states.

Compact case
Compact design allows direct mounting at the reading point.

Integrated antenna
The reader is already equipped with an integrated antenna (optionally up to 2 remote antennas).

Flexible configuration
Parameterization data and software updates can be carried out remotely.

Minimal cabling effort
Minimized cabling effort by using Ethernet (PoE) for power supply and as data interface.

Simple process integration
Easy integration of the RFID solution into existing processes.

Customer-specific adaptations
Customer-specific functionalities can be implemented optionally
