Logistics

The Value-ID Long Range RFID system provides a variety of possible uses from production via warehouse to transport. Products and material can be uniquely identified and located in real time within certain areas.

Comfortable

Transponders are mounted on products, material or and/or transport boxes. The Value-ID Readers read the Transponders via high distances and transfer the information to a management system. In order to be read Transponders do not need to be close to the Readers. So the Transponders can be identified and located in real time without need to touch or move them. The weather proof Reader with directional antenna can be used inside and outside.

In- House locating

Typically businesses constantly waste time and money by looking for material and products. With the Long Range Value-ID system this is a thing of the past. Any Item can be found in real time even in areas where GPS systems won´t work. This saves time and money and improves workflows.

Robust and reliable

The Value-ID active RFID systemworks reliably in harsh environments. Even close to liquids and metallic surfaces, where passive RFID systems fail, the Value-ID system delivers reliable performance.

Connectivity

A great variety of up to data interface options is available: RS232, USB or Ethernet. This allowas interfacing to virtually any management system. The optional use of power over ethernet simplifies installation and reduces investment cost. Integration of the Value-ID equipment in solutions for parking management, facility management and access control can be accomplished with little effort.

Integrated intelligence

The series 3000 Readers can optionally be operated in Stand- Alone mode. This means that the application logic runs inside of the device. This way, the access to doors or car barriers can be checked easily. The access rigths can be assigned by a Whitelist which is integrated in the Reader.

Optionally the Reader can be equipped with an Input/Output module providing two Relay outputs and two Opto-coupler inputs. This allows direct control of physical barriers.

Multi-Reader

Multiple Readers can be operated side by side without any negative interference.

Energy efficient

With an energy consumption of only 0,25W the Value-ID active RFID system operates extremely power saving.

Secure

The Transponders and Readers have an integrated AES-standard encryption which can be enabled optionally. Thus it is impossible to eavesdrop the user data or to manipulate data transmission.

Over The Air Kommunikation

Over The Air communication

A unique feature of the Value-ID Reader 3000 is its „Over The Air (OTA)“ communication ability. The RF interface will be used for communication between readers in this case. A gateway Reader will provide a virtual connection between a PC and a remote Reader. This way it is possible to install Readers without expensive and time consuming installation of network cables.

Investment protection

IT systems must meet theyr requirements also in the future. Thus the Operating System of the Reader (the “Firmware”) of all System 3000 Readers is updateable. The Firmware Upgrade is done using the standard communication interface or simply “Over The Air”. So it is not necessary to unmunt a Reader for doing a Firmware update. A special safety mechanism maintains an operable state of the Reader even if communication during update is being interrupted or if a power failure occurs.
