Product Details

Choice of RFID reader module

The iRFID XN3 is a fully certified Universal RFID Reader enclosure system with intrinsically safe RF outputs, specifically designed to allow the deployment of RFID Readers from leading vendors such as SICK, CAEN, Impinj, Zebra and others in hazardous areas.

Choice of antenna

The iRFID XN3 incorporates Extronics iSOLATE501 RF galvanic isolators, making RF outputs intrinsically safe. This means that any antenna assessed as meeting the international intrinsic safety standards for simple apparatus may be used. The Extronics iANT2xx range has been assessed for this purpose by our team of engineers.

Variable read range

Readers may be programmed to detect tags at variable distances, typically up to 10m (also depending on antenna chosen and tag dimensions). This gives you greater accuracy and reduces false readings.

Long range tag detection

A read range of up to 10m from each of up to 4 antenna outputs, for maximum performance and efficiency.

Intrinsically safe RF outputs

Not only does this give greater choice of antenna, it also means that antennas may be hot swapped without having to power down equipment – reducing downtime.

Highly rugged and reliable

The iRFID XN3 is designed to operate successfully in harsh environments and hazardous areas with and ingress protection of IP66.
