Choice of antenna

The iRFID100 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

With programmable output power in 256 steps from 17dBM to 32dBm, the iRFID100 can detect tags at variable distances 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 iRFID100 is designed to operate successfully in harsh environments and hazardous areas, including IP66 ingress protection, wide temperature range of -20°C to +60°C, and a marine grade aluminium enclosure painted with epoxy for maximum durability.
