Product Details:
CS203ETHER is an All Weather and MIL-STD-810 Ruggedized Ethernet connected UHF EPC C1G2 Integrated RFID reader. The reader has long read range and high read rate. The CS203 integrated reader is extremely versatile and can be used in all environments, indoor or outdoor, and for numerous applications including schools, warehouse dock doors, forklift mounting, parking lot gates, on-board waste disposal vehicles, highway toll stations, livestock farm, slaughter house, container port, zoos and etc. CS203ETHER is uniquely offered with either left hand or right hand circular polarization, thus allowing it to be deployed in the most extreme dense reader environment – face to face close range deployment. With the same API as CS101, CS468 and CS469 – CSL Unified API, the application development time and cost are reduced, resulting in a faster time to market.
