ThingMagic M6E Micro (UHF) RAIN

ThingMagic UHF RAIN RFID Module Series offers powerful embeddable RFID technology intended for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) designing for a broad range of applications in the Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Industries, Point of Sale Devices, Security Access Points, Mobile Devices, Kiosks, Vending Machines, and Tag Commissioning Stations.

The ThingMagic Micro UHF RAIN RFID Module Series is a compact high-performance embedded reader module, with a powerful read range of 30 ft (9 m) from two 50 Ω antenna ports. The Micro series is one of the smallest 2-port RFID readers and it’s designed for handheld, mobile or stationary readers.

The Micro and Micro-LTE demonstrate exceptional power for their size, with a command adjustable RF output range of -5 dBm to +30 dBm (0.5 dB steps), important for read and write requirements of OEM designs.

The M6e Micro has a read rate of 750 tags/sec using high-performance settings, while the M6e Micro-LTE has a read rate of 50 tags/sec.

Supporting the EPC Gen2V2 and ISO 18000-63 standard with optional license for IPX and ISO 18K-6B protocols (Gen2 standard), the Micro and Micro LTE are available in one single SKU per product model for global use and can also be customized for frequencies in many global regions including the Americas, Europe, India, Korea, Australia, China and Japan.

The ThingMagic Micro Series is supported by Mercury API.
