LF80C ZeniD RFID Reader

The RFID reader LF80C ZeniD is a read/write system of extraordinary quality and functionality. The device uses the frequency LF 134.2 kHz and communicates with TIRIS™ transponders. Captured data are sent to the higher-level system via a serial interface (RS232). At the touch of a button a test mode can be started, in which the system adapts to its surroundings and adjusts the perfect read/write range for the antenna. In addition, a test button allows the inspection of all functions without interrupting the operation of the overall system.

An integrated automatic synchronization function using the air interface allows trouble-free reading operations while simultaneously operating a number of readers in the direct vicinity.

These functions make it easy to integrate the device into the process periphery and allow for handling the system without the need for a comprehensive RFID understanding.

The RFID reader LF80C ZeniD has several LEDs to display the device status. They provide information on the current operational mode, voltage, antenna mode and read/write status as well as displaying I/O signals.

An LED for showing the operating status or read status and a sensor for triggering the read cycle can be connected via an additional digital input and output (LEMO connectors). Four different standard antennas with LEMO connectors and with cable lengths of up to 5 m are available.

On request the LF80C ZeniD is also available with an Ethernet interface.
