RFID UHF Enigma Industrial

Programming RFID UHF applications has never been as easy as with the new HCE Enigma Industrial system and CAENRFID RFID UHF A528 reader.

The OEM developing system

Thanks to the collaboration with CAENRFID you can get an integrated system for reading UHF RFID tags based on the GNU/Linux system.

The system comes with Debian 8.0 and all the software you need to use and develop your UHF RFID application right away. Thanks to the 24V (11-36V) DC power supply and its standard connectors and the TFT panel with RGB interface (up to 24 bit colors) with two different connectors, the product offers a low cost solution for graphic terminals and human-machine interface panels with 4.3 to 10 inch touchscreen.

At the base system we can add IO cards via RS485 interface with Modbus RTU (the Modbus TCP is available via Ethernet interface), via the CAN 2.0B interface (up to 1Mbit/s) or via its own expansion connector where 2xUART , 2xI2C, 1xSPI and 9xGPIO. In addition, the system supports two RJ45 Ethernet connectors (10/100Mbit and 10/100/1000Mbit)  and an optional IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi interface with speeds up to 72Mbps!
