UHF Gen 2 RFID Reader Modules and Readers

Trimble offers UHF RIFD reader modules for OEM customers and system integrators. The modules are developed by Trimble's ThingMagic division, a pioneer and leader in RFID technology. We offer a number of finished readers based on the RFID reader modules.

Trimble readers operate in the UHF bands around 800 MHz and 900 MHz. The exact frequencies vary around the word depending on the radio frequency allocation in each country. Our readers handle RFID tags conforming to the EPCglobal Gen 2 standards (ISO 18000-6C). All reader modules are supported by a common API - the code you develop for one reader can be used on all the other readers.
