Manufacturer: JADAK
ThingMagic USB Pro RFID Reader

ThingMagic’s USBPro with Desktop RAIN® RFID Reader,  based on the M6e-Micro LTE RFID module, offers a number of enhancements including:

  • Wider power range
  • New external antenna port
  • Enhanced firmware features

The USBPro reader is preconfigured for most regions in the world including the Americas (FCC / IC rules), Europe (ETSI rules), India (TRAI), Korea (KCC), Australia (ACMA), China (SRRC-MII), and Japan (MIC).  The reader also has a customizable option to accommodate other areas and research applications.

The wider power range gives greater flexibility in applying the reader.  With internal and external antenna options, the power setting may now be varied to match a wider range of applications. The enhanced firmware associated with the M6e-Micro LTE module includes support for ISO 18000 6C Gen2V2 tags, faster initialization on startup, and additional protocol support (may require additional licensing).
