The UHF version supports RFID transponders according to ISO standard 18000-6C EPC Class 1 generation 2. Thanks to the support of ETSI (865 - 868 MHz) and FCC (902 - 928 MHz) frequencies, it may be used globally. The Stick Reader EVO UHF has a reading range of up to 30 cm — depending on day, position, and environmental conditions. The stick has an integrated antenna that receives linearly polarized signals.

Thanks to its IP40 protection class, it can withstand the ingress of dust and other foreign objects up to 1 mm. It is ideally suited for use in fluctuating temperature environments from - 10 °C to + 50 °C (14 °F to 122 °F). The stick is a true lightweight at just 20 g — comparable to a cherry. Its handy and compact design, with dimensions of 83.5 × 36 × 11.2 mm, makes it easy to transport and use.

The UHF Stick Reader is priced very attractively compared to other UHF standards.

The new design of the EVO Stick Reader is timelessness in its simplicity. The case is black and rectangular. The material of the reader is made of durable, long-lasting plastic (ABS). The cover of the USB Reader is also removable.

The reader supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10. A software development kit for Windows systems is available for download. An optional HID (Human Interface Design) version is available. This allows access to the device in all German Windows 7 versions. The computer then recognizes the device as an input device. Additionally, the reader has a plug-and-play function. The stick is ready for immediate use without requiring installation.

Application example

The reader is an optimal solution for libraries and document management. Thanks to the common USB interface, it can be used with almost any existing library computer system. Thanks to its plug-and-play functionality setup is almost immediate. Due to the high reading range of 30 cm, library cards, books, and other documents do not have to be positioned directly on the reader. This reduces time, costs, and increases efficiency.
