Long range detection always seems to require choosing between expensive active (battery-powered tags) and passive (unpowered tags) technology. Obviously, passive solutions tend to be less-expensive. However, assuming all active readers will provide you a longer reliable detection range is a common mistake. Idesco EPC readers don’t merely provide a more cost effective and dynamic alternative to active readers – they also boast identification distances up to 15 meters, and in some cases beyond. Furthermore, since passive tags don’t require short-lived batteries and are less vulnerable to inclement weather, they’re much less expensive and remarkably long-lived (decades).
Therefore, with an Idesco passive EPC reader you can create a less-expensive, reliable and truly long-distance (up to 10-15 meters) identification system with a long life span and long identification distances. Additionally, our rugged (IP67) EPC readers boast advanced features such as flexibly adjustable reading areas, auxiliary antenna for bidirectional monitoring and plug-n-play wireless deployment to dispense with expensive cabling.
