The enterprise-grade Impinj R700 RAIN RFID Reader is designed to support global enterprise RAIN deployments that need high performance and reliability. IoT developers can easily build and deploy customized solutions with developer friendly APIs, versatile, standardized connections, and support for up to 32 antennas. With fast, accurate reading of small, global RAIN RFID tags, the Impinj R700 advances the performance of use cases including threshold transitions and inventory. The Impinj R700 features the best receive sensitivity and powerful edge processing to open up new use cases. It is easy to build customized solutions with versatile, standardized connections, and intuitive APIs to connect with enterprise IoT business applications. The design of this reader goes beyond what is currently available in the market by reducing size and increasing performance. The design is part of this solution. The enclosure wraps the components snugly for size reduction which allows installation in a greater variety of locations. The addition of a VESA mount pattern gives further flexibility in mounting locations. The ridges improve thermal performance by making the full enclosure a heat-sink which improves performance. The interface is simple and consistent with Impinj’s other products which makes user interaction intuitive.
