M5e-Compact

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:

  • Support for EPCglobal Gen 2 (ISO 18000-6C) tag protocol with anti-collision, and DRM capabilities
  • One antenna port supporting a monostatic antenna
  • Independently settable read and write transmit level, adjustable from 10 dBm to 23 dBm with an accuracy of +/- 1 dBm
  • Support for full 860 to 960 MHz UHF RFID carrier frequency range to accommodate worldwide regulations
  • Certifiable for operation in countries adopting FCC, ETSI and Korean regulatory specifications (others pending)
  • TTL level asynchronous data interface supporting speeds up to 921.6 kbps
  • Operating temperature range of -20 C to +60 C
  • Maximum tag read rate of over 200 tags per second
  • Maximum tag read distance of over 20 feet (6 m) with 12 dBi antenna
  • 4 GPIO lines controlled through data interface

Industry Leading Support

"It's not often that one gets good support worldwide. I've been unable to find any other RFID module comparing to ThingMagic's, or getting any other company to support us."
