Knowing your reader’s planned use and your system’s technical requirements is only part of your puzzle. Your system’s security also demands your consideration – since it can powerfully impact your reader choice. Finally, your reader’s ability to accommodate future updating could reap you significant savings across your reader’s lifespan. Where security is a priority, choosing a technology that can’t be hacked is also important. And if protecting your sourcing independence for new or replacement devices is vital, an open, standardized technology that protects you from being vendor-locked is essential.

We review these and many other factors, from interfaces to read distance, with our customers when they research the right device for their deployment. We assembled them in a downloadable PDF, How to choose an RFID reader. We encourage you to download it to help your, or your own customers’ research and decision process.
