Impinj RS2000 RAIN RFID Reader Module



Impinj RS2000 RAIN RFID Reader Module

The Impinj RS2000 is a turnkey embedded RAIN RFID reader module based on the market-leading Impinj R2000 reader chip. This reader module requires no external components, is fully tested, and meets regulatory requirements. It comes in a surface mount package designed to work as a SMT (surface mount technology) compatible component in a standard PCB manufacturing process, which eliminates costly mechanical hardware, RF cables, and human assembly that are typically required with embedded readers on the market today. The Impinj RS2000 is ideal for embedded applications requiring long read range of large tag populations, the small form factor and four antenna ports of the Impinj RS2000 enable a wide range of fixed and mobile readers for inventory management, asset tracking, logistics, and industrial automation.

NOTE: This product is a reader module – NOT a finished RFID reader – and is meant for OEM and developers to embed into products or to be used in the creation of a new finished reader. If you are interested in an existing finished reader product, check out our line of finished Impinj readers.
