UHF Compact Reader for Vehicle Identification | FEIG ElectronicsDuluth, GA — October 22nd, 2018FEIG ELECTRONICS, a leading global supplier of RFID readers and antennas, today announced its UHF Compact Reader ID LRU500i, which combines a powerful RFID reader with an integrated antenna and signal light in one single device.  The UHF Compact Reader is ideal for vehicle identification and parking access control applications in airports, universities, gated communities and others. This small vehicle access control reader is installed next to the barrier, gate or bollard, allowing vehicles to conveniently enter the parking area without the need of stopping at the entry.

Efficient and secure vehicle access can be a challenge for building owners with limited space for equipment and a narrow entry for vehicles, the new UHF Compact Reader is small and yet has a long-range performance up to 25 feet to allow vehicle entry and exit in an efficient manner. Other concerns from building owners are the vehicle access control system needs to be independent of the primary building access control system but could later be integrated as an option. The UHF Compact Reader has a Wiegand interface for use with existing access control systems. In addition, FEIG offers a variant with integrated access control panel(MAX.U50.10)with the free FEIG myAXXESS Manager software. The myAXXESS software allows the user to easily control user data and access parameters stored in the reader’s non-volatile memory and control the gate actuators with its own internal GPIO. This makes it effortless to install the UHF Compact Reader as a standalone vehicle access control system or integrate with other systems.

“FEIG has a deep understanding of gate and parking requirements with its 50 years’ experience in RFID, gate and controller technology and will continue to launch high performance and secure identification solutions,” said Manuel Haertlé, product manager of access control for FEIG ELECTRONICS. “FEIG’s UHF Compact Reader functionality enables low-cost, high-speed vehicle tracking, parking management, and gated access control to install in existing access control panels or for standalone systems.”

FEIG’s best in class UHF Compact Reader is equipped with a full range of suitable interfaces for vehicle access control and automatic vehicle identification (AVI) applications. It combines a signal light, a powerful RFID reader, and a potent UHF antenna in one sleek device.  Additionally, the reader is equipped with a circular-polarized antenna capable of identifying every possible orientation. An external antenna can also be added to control a second lane or to enlarge the reading area. Furthermore, the device is able to store application keys in a completely secure environment and its cabinet approach ensures ease of installation and maintenance.  The UHF Compact Reader requires no antenna cable which is often damaged during installations. It just needs a power supply and an interface cable; and only one cable is sufficient when using PoE (Power-over-Ethernet).
