M5e
Mercury5e

About the size of a PCMCIA Type II PC card, The Mercury5e (M5e) UHF RFID module concentrates high-performance into a small package so you can design ThingMagic RFID into your own device. The M5e is ideal for adding UHF RFID read/write capabilities to a wide range of products and solutions, from high-speed label printing and inlay testing, to stationary, mobile, and handheld computers.


Features of the Mercury5e RFID reader module include:

  • Support for EPCglobal Gen 2 (ISO 18000-6C) tag protocol with anti-collision, DRM, and advanced anti-jamming capabilities
  • Two antenna connectors supporting one bistatic antenna or two monostatic antennas
  • Independently settable read and write transmit levels, adjustable from 5 dBm to 30 dBm (1W) 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 30 feet (9 m) with 6 dBi antenna
  • 4 GPIO lines controlled through data interface

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"
