The Elpas Outdoor RF
Reader is a supervised, indoor/outdoor 433MHz RTLS fixed receiver. The
device is designed to forward real-time ‘Location’ and/or ‘State’ data
detected from Elpas Active RFID Tags directly to Eiris Enterprise Software
or to a third-party RTLS application using an IP XML protocol over standard
wired or wireless Ethernet/Wi-Fi networks.
The reader delivers all
the functionality of an Elpas Local Controller (ELC) and serves as a RS-485
BUS Master for relaying bi-directionally, data between the host application
and up to 15 Elpas BUS devices (RF or IR Readers, Input/Output Modules,
Elpas Display Panels or LF Exciters) using Elpas RS-485 Junction Boxes.
Housed in an IP-66
enclosure, the reader is suitable for deployment in rugged conditions and can be wall
ceiling or post-mounted. The reader handles large tag populations at
read-distances up to 200M/650ft in open environments using its optional Yagi
antenna and is remotely configurable for customized applications. On-board I/Os also enable
the monitoring of one supervised input and control of two open-collector
digital switched outputs.
