Alien ALR-9680 RFID reader Dev.Kit offers the complete range of products to build an RFID System. The ALR-9680 is a simple, low profile EPC Gen2 RFID reader that enables users to start reading tags and developing solutions immediately and is especially useful for tight spaces. It has 4 monostatic ports and is upgradeable with Power-Over Ethernet (POE). It also includes out-of-the-box software that is compatible with other Alien readers. The combination of 4 antennas and POE significantly reduces the cost and complexity of installing an RFID read point. The ALR-9680 communicates via the easy-to-use Alien Reader Protocol with key RFID platform support including Microsoft®, BizTalk RFID, OatSystems, Oracle®, Xterprise and others. A well-documented SDK featuring .NET, Java and Ruby libraries enables development of custom interfaces to control the reader if desired. The user-friendly Alien RFID Gateway software enables solution development immediately. Includes power supply and power cord.
