RRU 4000 RAIN RFID Reader

Brand new RRU 4000 & ARU 3000 RAIN Readers

The Kathrein ARU 3000 and RRU 4000 RAIN RFID readers are the gateways for IoT applications. These readers are used when AutoID networks and communication networks intersect. On the one hand, the readers offer high-performance 33 dBm UHF RF units, on the other hand, a big variety of interfaces for communications networks.

Regardless of whether cables are used for PoE+ and Ethernet networks or wireless options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or mobile communication networks, Kathrein always offers the best fitting solution.

To handle this powerful feature, the readers have a built-in Linux computer with up to 8 GB memory. The customers have the full access to run their own applications or use the most powerful IoT software suite CrossTalk from Kathrein.

New RAIN RFID Reader With Innovative Connection Concept

Quick and easy installation With the new ARU 2400, Kathrein Solutions is launching a RAIN RFID reader on the market that is as easy to install as it is to operate! With its slim, smart design, durability and functionality, the reader can be used in a variety of applications. The powerful RAIN RFID interface known from Kathrein and the robust design are also present in this 27-dBm class reader. The ARU 2400 offers new mounting and connection options. The housing of the ARU 2400 can easily be installed in existing shelves using the mounting points for the so-called ITEM profiles. The plugs and sockets are just as easy to operate. For both the power supply and the terminal block of the digital inputs and outputs, a terminal strip with screw terminals – which allow direct cable installation – is installed. Come and see the new ARU 2400 at the Kathrein Solutions booth at RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2018 on October 30 & 31 in Darmstadt near Frankfurt, Germany!
