EZ230 & EZ270 RAIN RFID - BLE beacons IoT gateways with Wi-Fi and USB connectivity


Identix EZ230 and EZ270 are high performance ultra-compact IoT gateways that combines reading of passive RAIN RFID tags and BLE beacon scanning capabilities in the same device.


  • EZ230 delivers maximum RF power of +23dBm, for reading tags up to 2.5 meters away.


  • EZ270 output power goes up to +27dBm which allows further distances up to 6m depending on the type of tag and antenna used.

Both models have two RF ports with SMA connectors for connecting external RFID antennas. Capacity can be further expanded up to 16 antennas when using the optional CATENA smart antennas multiplexer.


The embedded RFID reader 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 barcode format. These features allow seamless and immediate integration with all applications prepared for use with barcode readers without the need of new software development and integration. 


The compact design together with its competitive cost, make EZ230 and EZ270 the ideal device for retail applications, especially fashion and apparel.


With easy integration, simplicity, robustness, and low cost, the Identix IoT gateways are the ideal devices for use in different applications and environments such as retail, healthcare, libraries, and others.
