IF2 RFID Fixed Reader

Get advanced RFID performance in a compact, cost-effective design. The IF2 network reader lowers the deployment cost of passive UHF asset tracking and inventory management applications, giving you a superior return on investment. Adding powerful automation to complex processes has never been so easy.

The compact, cost-effective IF2 Network Reader supports diverse RFID applications in both enterprise and industrial environments that require a scalable RFID system with a low cost per read point.

Packaged in a small and lightweight, yet durable enclosure, the IF2 is suited for nearly any environment, including industrial warehouse and manufacturing operations and enterprise environments for asset and inventory management applications.

Built to enable scalable low-cost deployments for improved return on investment, the IF2 network reader supports:
  • Power over Ethernet
  • Four mono- or bi-static RF ports
  • Built-in, powered general purpose input output (GPIO) control
  • Both standards-based LLRP and our easy to use Basic Reader Interface (BRI) application interfaces

The IF2 network reader’s radio frequency (RF) platform offers best-in-class read performance and includes support for our exclusive Advanced RFID Extensions (ARX) that help you achieve a new level of visibility in identifying RFID tags for greater tag reading accuracy compared to readers utilizing less-versatile, commodity chipsets.
