Modular Sensor Infrastructure
The RA-R436 is a 2400MHz active RFID transceiver compatible with Bluetooth Low Energy devices*. We call it a reelceiver because it can be daisy-chained with other reelceivers using standard Cat5e cables to create a reel. Each RA-R436 has a globally unique identifier and detects all compatible wireless devices in range, including their received signal strength (RSSI). Devices in range are located to the nearest reelceiver transparently and calibration-free. Power and communications are transferred over a single cable: simply connect and forget. Compliance for global operation. Available with custom factory-configured options at scale.
* Specifically devices which transmit Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) advertising packets
