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.

Kathrein Presents New ARU 8500 RFID Antenna Reader at #WIOTtomorrow19

Optimal Shipping Control by Means of Precise RFID Direction Recognition At the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2019, Kathrein Solutions presents a new product, ARU 8500 reader from the ARU reader family. The more complex the logistics processes become, the higher the demands for reliable and high-performance reading devices. The new ARU 8500 reader with an integrated circular switch-beam antenna enables precise detection of goods and their direction of movement. Ubiquity means the ability to be present everywhere. However, it is also a requirement for industrial production or logistics processes that shipped goods or commodities are tracked at all times. The transitions between the production areas or individual parts in the supply chain are of central importance. The device is characterised by a greater processing capacity and, therefore, a fast reading process as well as increased reading accuracy, even under difficult conditions.

Nationwide Vehicle Identification at the Foot of the Pyramids

Case study from Kathrein Solutions! Background Egypt has around 100 million inhabitants, 20 million of which live in Cairo. There are about 20 million cars in the country, and there are more and more every single day. Many of these cars are very old and sometimes not registered. Unfortunately, the number of accidents per year is very high. Hence, there are many reasons to invest into a new, innovative and comprehensive solution for vehicle identification.

Railway Tracking & Monitoring

Case Study by Kathrein Solutions Challenge Railway operators need to guarantee the availability of their railway networks as they are widely used these days. Even minor incidents can lead to major disruptions in the dense and complicated timetable of the transport system. One way to avoid incidents and accidents is to use security checkpoints, where various parameters are measured, such as profile clearance, wheel loads, heat, fire or chemical leakage. The challenge was to identify alarming measurements as accurately as possible down to an axle/wheel of a certain rail car body, in order to perform the actions as efficiently as possible.
