The MPRX Multiprotocol Reader is a radio frequency identification (RFID) reader that can be used in railway applications with adverse conditions.
The MPRX comes in an IP65/67 rated case for dust and water ingress protection in harsh outdoor or rail environments. The MPRX boasts Ethernet (via sealed M12 connector), RS422, and RS232 communication protocols.
All interfaces support simultaneous host communications in real-time for passing read data to the host computer.
The MPRX employs advanced multiplexing techniques that improve reader performance at higher vehicle speeds when compared to legacy products, allowing one reader to manage up to four antennas.
In addition, the reader can supply active antenna information to the host, tying tag reads to each multiplexed antenna.
