Desktop RFID Reader

The Venture Research Desktop Reader provides a fully integrated RFID reader and antenna in a sealed enclosure. The small enclosure fits discretely on a desk with only a single POE cable and can capture all tagged items on the desk for tracking requirements. Multiple readers can be placed in a room to allow tracking of files, documents, or books between personnel.

Power Over Ethernet

Power Over Ethernet (POE) allows the desktop reader to be powered through the same cable that provides data connection. This simplifies installation and minimizes desktop clutter. By using Ethernet connectivity, the desktop reader can be driven by an external server and does not need to interface to the local computer on the desk. This eliminates setup and interfacing complexity required by USB type desktop reader.

WiFi Option

The available WiFi Option integrates 802.11g wireless networking for data connectivity. This enables a tracking station to be created at any location that has standard power available and a Wifi infrastructure.

Additional Antenna Port

An additional antenna port allows the desktop reader to drive an external antenna, increasing the area covered by the reader. For example, a desktop reader could track the contents of a desk through the main antenna while an external antenna monitored the room entrance.
