EPC 2.0 Compact is a small EPC reader designed to provide convenient “hands-free” access control. It can read out to 4 meters, depending on reader placement, tag type, tag orientation and materials of the surrounding environment. As an anti-collision reader, EPC 2.0 Compact is fully capable of transacting multiple tags simultaneously, including encrypted EPC Gen2v2 transponders. It readily supports on-site configuration by config cards or by RS232 interface. By default, EPC 2.0 Compact initiates polling/reading automatically upon power-up without initializing commands. Lastly, EPC 2.0 Compact also supports EPC, TID and User memory bank reading.
