In order for RFID readers to do more than simply read and act as a data conduit, they need processing speed and ample memory. With the powerful combination of an Intel Celeron M 600MHz processor and up to 1 GB of optional memory, the Intermec IF61 Enterprise Reader is the smartest RFID reader available, capable of running complex RFID applications, delivering faster processing and localized intelligence.
When the host system or electrical power fails, the ample storage resources, and “store and forward” capabilities of the IF61ensure that data won’t be lost, even in the highest tag volume environments. In fact, with the optional spinning drive installed, the IF61 can store over 6 billion EPC tags. When applications are mission critical and “re-work” isn’t an option, the IF61 can be counted on.
By hosting applications written in Java, Java Script or C# .Net., the IF61 filters, stores and manipulates information from tags and sends it to a server in a required format, while monitoring external sensors and controlling audible and visual indicators. For example, the IF61 can be programmed to store a day’s worth of shipping manifests, compare the pallet tags it reads against the manifests in its memory, and drive a peripheral device to issue a visual or audible signal of a correctly or incorrectly loaded pallet.
The IF61 can perform all of these tasks without the extra expense, and potential point of failure, of a separate industrial PC often required by other RFID reading solutions. Additionally, the IF61 includes powered general purpose input/output (GPIO) circuitry, which allows direct monitoring and/or controlling of peripherals such as presence detectors and signal lights without requiring extra devices and power supplies to facilitate the connection.
The IF61 is a Smart RFID Reader capable of embedding enterprise-class edge server software in lieu of requiring an on-premise PC. Advanced network services built into the IF61 greatly facilitates enterprise architects in configuring a highly secure, scalable, and reliable RFID infrastructure. The IF61 is the only RFID reader to provide a localized workbench to load, edit and run Java Script as a standard feature. The workbench allows programmers to test business logic directly on the reader, enabling faster application development while utilizing fewer resources.
SmartSystem™ Foundation, standard on the IF61, provides a single, convenient console for quick set-up and configuration of all of the settings contained in the device. Administrators can change device settings, send firmware upgrades, update software applications, and execute other changes directly from the console to save time and significantly cut costs.
