Far Field directivity

Identix DR-mini is an ultra-compact, high-performance IoT RAIN RFID gateway with an integrated RFID antenna and two additional RF (SMA) ports for connecting optional external antennas. All antennas can operate simultaneously with different configuration settings.

The wide range of network and USB communication protocols, including MQTT, HTTP, RAW modes and IPJ-EX10, allows fast and easy integration with all kinds of business applications.

The internal RFID antenna with circular polarization and high-intensity magnetic field is optimized for applications that demand reading at short distance, such as points of sale (POS), price check terminals among others

Identix DR-mini can optionally operate in "keyboard wedge mode" (keyboard emulation via USB HID) along with the automatic decoding of RFID EPC data in GS1 format (SGTIN96-198) to UPC / EAN-13.

Identix DR-mini has unique features for POS operation, including an optical sensor for RFID read triggering, as well as intelligent data filtering algorithms that enable fast and efficient automatic data capture of items identified with UHF RAIN RFID tags
