preliminary information
expected availability Q3 2022

Identix EZ series is a high performance 2-in-1 RAIN RFID reader - BLE IoT gateway which combines simultaneous "reading of passive RAIN RFID tags" and "BLE beacon scanning" capabilities in the same device. EZ reader is available in two versions: EZ500 and EZ700 depending on the required RFID reading performance.

With great versatility and a rich set of features available, it is the recommended solution for a variety of business applications such as RFID portals, POS stations, vehicle tracking, supply chain logistics and many others.

EZ reader is a very robust device with advanced RFID design features such as DRM (Dense Reader Mode) and Carrier Cancellation, usually found in higher cost readers. These features provide excellent tag read performance even in the most adverse RF noise environments.

 

The CONNECTIX embedded software application allows quick and seamless integration with existing business applications and Cloud services such as Microsoft, Amazon, Google, IBM and others. Collected data is directly sent via HTTP Post, TCP socket, MQTT, and other methods. 

EZ READER SERIES AT A GLANCE

EZ reader series offers two levels of performance depending on your needs:

Reading performance and RX sensitivity 

   

    EZ-700 +1000 tags/s with -86dBm (max) sensitivity

or

    EZ-500 +700 tags/s with -82dBm (max) sensitivity

Except for the RFID reading performance and reading sensitivity, all remaining features and resources are equal among all models.
