F5te – RFID Reader

RFID readers are used in much the same way that barcode scanners are used. RFID is viewed as a quicker way to capture that data with greater accuracy and ease of collection. RFID is also being used as an alternative way of logging on and authenticating users. RFID adds value by increasing productivity and eliminating errors in acquiring data from items such as medicine, palletized goods, retail packaged goods and vehicle data.

Simply press the RFID trigger, which is conveniently located on the handle of the F5te, to detect and read the data off of the RFID tag.

Technology Definition

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method that relies on remote storage of data and remote retrieval of data from devices such as wristbands, badges or stickers embedded with RFID tags or transponders.

Motion’s Integration of the Technology

The Motion F5te comes with an optional high-frequency (13.56 MHz) RFID reader. The RFID reader’s key performance attributes include maximum read range and reliability as well as reduced power consumption.

The Motion F5te RFID reader is ISO/IC 15693 enabled (supported out-of-box) and can also support ISO/IEC 14443A/B and ISO/IEC 18000-3 (supported after additional software work).

Motion’s product is high-frequency (13.56MHz). In comparison, low-frequency readers operate in the 125-134.2kHz and 140-148.5 kHz bands.
