The M5e-Compact is the smallest ThingMagic Mercury embedded UHF RFID reader - about the same size as a compact flash card. This RFID reader module is ideal for adding UHF RFID read/write capabilities to battery-powered mobile printers and hand-held readers, where small size and low power consumption are essential and where the higher RF power and advanced anti-jamming capabilities of the Mercury5e module are not required.
Features of the Mercury5e-Compact RFID reader module include:
Achieve 100% Reads
"If a live tag was in the carton, the ThingMagic Mercury RFID readers caught it and achieved 100 percent read rates, with no misreading of any of the 13,500 RFID tags. In fact, we had some cartons with over 100 items, which we thought might result in RFID read errors due to high density and shielding of tags, but these, too, were read at 100 percent"
