The Kathrein antenna-integrated Reader ARU 8500 is the all-in-one device for direction detection. Based on an Ethernet communication interface and a circular switch-beam technology the reader detects the movement of goods and items. It recognizes dynamic and static RFID tags, avoid wrong stocktaking or protects against theft. Based on the latest RFID standards, such as EPC Gen2v2/ISO 18000-63, Kathrein ARU 8500 antenna reader supports all market-leading transponder chip features for security, authentification and encoding.
Kathrein Solutions, leading manufacturer of RFID identification and RTLS localization systems, offers a wide range of RAIN RFID antennas.
Suitable for a variety of different read ranges by low-range (LORA), mid-range (MIRA) andwide-range (WIRA) antennas. Â©KRAI (Kathrein RFID antenna interface) enables different antenna features dynamically, such as polarization switch or antenna cascading for multiple use cases. Based on this diversity, the best antenna for all kind of application can be found easily.
Kathrein offers a wide range of high-performance transponders for automated vehicle identification and industrial use.
The RFID Windshield Label serves for the automatic, contactless identification of vehicles (Automatic Vehicle Identification, AVI). The label is adhered to the inside of the windshield. The development of the RFID Windshield Label was focused on a very high read range, thanks to special antenna behind glass and a passive function without battery. Tag authentication using AES coprocessor and 128-bit AES unique crypto key. Privacy protection via untraceable command and 128-bit AES group crypto key. Trust Provisioning of Secure Secrets. The label material is a combination of PP and PET layer extra security die-cuts improve security against removal and re-use.
The RFID headlamp tag serves for the automatic, contactless identification of motorcycles and vehicles (Automatic Vehicle Identification, AVI). The label is adhered to the outside of the headlamp. The development of the RFID headlamp tag has been focused on a very high read range due to the special antenna on the headlamp and a passive function without a battery. The UCODE DNA tag authentication uses an AES coprocessor and a 128-bit AES unique crypto key. The privacy protection of this tag is realised via an untraceable command and 128-bit AES group crypto key.
To protect the personalisation, both tags consists of two layers. The label material of the UCODE DNA tag is a combination of a hologram and PET layer, the label material of the the UCODE 7xm tag is a PET layer. The extra fragile antenna layer improves security against removal and re-use.
The universal multi surface transponders from Kathrein are designed to be insensitive to the materials to which they are attached. Equally good performance is expected on both metal and non-metal items. With their robust structure they can be used successfully in harsh environments and have a high class of destruction resistance. With the UCODE DNA the transponders offer combination of long range UHF RFID performance coupled with cryptographic security functionality for tag authentication.
