HF Read-/Write Head with Condition Monitoring

HF Read-/Write Head with Condition Monitoring

Everything in One Housing!

RFID HF read/write heads (13.56 MHz) with integrated processor units are the mediators between the data carrier and the PC or controller.

Additional processors are eliminated because the antenna, electronics, and interface are all located within the housing. Easy integration reduces installation expenses. Variants with separated electronics are also suitable for tight installation conditions, providing leeway during the installation.
