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.

Case Study by Kathrein Solutions | Intelligent Transportation Systems

Reading RAIN RFID @220 km/h with Full 128 bit AES Encryption! The world is getting smarter and IoT is on the advance. The automatic detection of vehicles with RAIN® RFID is no exception. Whether it is Electronic Vehicle Registra-tion (EVR), Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), Automated Vehicle Identification (AVI) or Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), every application requires highly accurate identification at the highest speed. Last but not least, the communication between a reader and a transponder as well as between a reader and a back-end system requires the highest level of security.

For this reason, AUDI AG opted for a standardised concept for vehicle tracking at all production locations.
