ThingMagic® M6e Nano (UHF) RAIN

Tiny Embedded UHF RAIN® RFID Module

Manufacturer: JADAK
ThingMagic® M6e Nano (UHF) RAIN
Introduction

ThingMagic UHF RAIN RFID Module Series offers original equipment manufacturers (OEM) powerful embeddable RFID technology 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 Nano UHF RAIN RFID Module is JADAK’s smallest embeddable module with ultra-low power consumption and tiny form factor.  This RFID reader is ideal for battery operated, low-cost, small form factor portable devices.

The Nano demonstrates incredible power for its size, with a command adjustable RF output range of 0 dBm to +27 dBm (0.01 dB steps), important for read and write requirements of OEM designs, it can read at a rate up to 200 tags/sec.

Supporting the EPC Gen2V2 and ISO 18000-63 standard, the Nano is available in one single SKU for global use and can also be customized for frequencies in many global regions including the Americas, European Union (EU), India, Korea, Australia, China, and Japan.

The ThingMagic Nano is supported by Mercury API.
