Alien ALR-9680 RFID Reader (4-port)
Simple, Low Proﬁle, Gen 2 RFID Solution With Power-Over Ethernet (POE) and out-of-the-box software compatibility with other Alien readers, the ALR-9680 Gen 2 RFID Reader is a simple, low proﬁle solution that enables users to start reading tags and developing solutions immediately. Easy to Integrate The ALR-9680 communicates via the easy-to-use Alien Reader Protocol, with key RFID platform support including Microsoft® BizTalk RFID, OatSystems, Oracle®, Xterprise and others. A well-documented SDK featuring .NET, Java and Ruby libraries enables easy development of custom interfaces to control the reader if desired. The user-friendly Alien RFID Gateway software enables the user to begin solution development immediately. Low System Cost The cost of installing AC power can sometimes rival the cost of the reader. The ALR-9680’s POE capability allows power to be delivered over properly-equipped local area networks, eliminating expensive AC wiring installation. The combination of this capability with up to 4 antenna signiﬁcantly reduces the cost and complexity of installing an RFID read point.
