ARE i9 – The New RFID Reader for Industry and Logistics AEG ID launches new RFID reader as LF and HF variant together with a new communication module and opts for a new development approach. AEG ID has been developing and producing RFID hardware since 1989. New readers in the LF, HF and UHF frequencies are regularly presented, which are used worldwide in industry and logistics, or in maintenance and servicing. A new reader will be launched on the market in 2020 that for the first time, is based on a new development concept as the result of RFID know-how built up over decades. Reason enough for RFID & Wireless IoT Global to ask Simon Arch, Marketing & Sales Director at AEG ID about what the new ARE i9 device – also in conjunction with the new ACM 9 communication module – can do, for which applications it is suitable for, why the 'normal' development period of 18 months for this device was not sufficient, and what expansions are planned for the new product family in 2021.
