ThingMagic's Mercury5e-embedded reader module has been added to the EDIsecure XID 570i and 580i Retransfer Card Printers that are sold and supported nationwide by the IRIS Companies. IRIS customers can now quickly print color UHF RFID identification badges used for secure building and office entry, personnel tracking for safety, and other workplace and access applications.
With these UHF RFID badges, an RFID reader can read a badge on a lanyard or attached to a pocket that is a few yards away. Many other RFID-enabled ID badge systems use the close-proximity UF standard, which requires users to almost touch a badge to a lowrange RFID reader. This new system is easier to use and more accurate overall, according to the company.
The new Mercury5e reader uses the Intel RFID Transceiver R1000 chip, which integrates a number of components into a single integrated RFID circuit and enables digital signal processing and analog data processing on the same chip. As a result, the reader consumes less energy and performs better.
The Mercury5e-embedded RFID reader module also combines multi-region capability into a single module. As a result, any Mercury5e reader is immediately compliant with local standards whether it is deployed in Europe, North America, or South Korea. It also uses an embedded version of the latest Yagi MercuryOS, which enables high tag-read accuracy and many simultaneous reads. This operating system also can identify and filter interference from other RFID readers, fluorescent lighting, and wireless networks and telephones. It is optimized for Generation 2 RFID tags for state-of-the-art performance, and it supports Generation 2 Dense Reader Mode and advanced filtering to reject multiple interference sources.
