Alien ALR-F800-X Enterprise RFID Reader With Emissary (4-Port)
The ALR-F800-X is a truly transformational product created by the merging two core capabilities present in any solution. It is an ALR-F800 based 4-port Enterprise Class UHF Passive Reader and it is an Edge Service controller or manager that supports other readers in the network providing a complete Industry 4.0 solution. By transforming the reader into both a middleware host and an application host, multiple layers of complexity and cost are thereby eliminated. Additionally, by processing data elements at the source, the value of the data is exponentially increased, because individual read points throughout a vast enterprise can be examined and evaluated in real time. This adds immeasurably to the richness and quality of the Big Data analytic scenarios now emerging in every area of business life.

What is Emissary™?
Emissary comes embedded inside the ALR-F800-X at no additional cost and is ready to use “out of the box” without the complexities associated with downloading special licenses. Each ALR-F800-X supports four additional readers (for five readers in total), and no additional Edge Server is required (the ALR-F800-X performs this function). The ALR-F800-X with Emissary is designed to be low fuss and simple to use. It visualizes readers, antenna, and other IO devices into a more logical view that is more customer centric. A complete multi-reader/device workflow can be described from built in Activities resulting in simplified installation, operation, and maintenance. Emissary consists of:
- User-friendly, familiar device, and location naming for multiple read-point environments.
- A simple mechanism to define and visualize how reader and non-reader hardware are applied to these various locations.
- Built-in common activities (such as read a tag, turn on a light).
- A Microsoft Windows tool for combining activities into the desired multi-reader and multi I/O device workflows (across multiple readers).
- Automatic interpretation of the correct Tag Data Standard when tags are read.
- Aggregation of tag read data (reports) into the ALR-F800-X where consolidated reports can then be transferred to the cloud or server (reducing data flowing between them).
Due to country specific regulations, power supplies must be obtained locally for Argentina, Japan, and South Korea.
