Impinj R700 Antenna Hub
Scaling a RAIN RFID IoT solution just got easier with the release of the Impinj R700 Antenna Hub. Designed to help Impinj partners scale their RAIN RFID solutions cost-effectively and with simplicity, the Antenna Hub has eight output ports to connect up to 32 antennas to a single Impinj R700 RAIN RFID Reader, enabling a RAIN RFID solution that requires multiple read zones. The Impinj R700 Antenna Hub includes support that enables one cable to power the antenna hub, control active RF output, and carry the RAIN RFID signal. This requires fewer cables to install the Antenna Hub, making it easier and less costly to install, and creates fewer points of failure in deployment.
The R700 antenna hub expands the number of antennas that can connect to an Impinj R700 reader by allowing eight antennas to connect to one antenna port for a total of 32 antennas per reader.
Cost Effective for IoT Solutions with Multiple Read Zones
The Impinj R700 antenna hub enables RAIN RFID solutions that require multiple read zones, such as tool tracking and smart shelves, to be cost-effective, scalable, and easy-to-deploy by expanding the number of read zones covered with a single reader.
Why use Impinj R700 Antenna Hub
Scale with Simplicity
Leverage robust, system-level feedback and eight output ports to connect up to 32 antennas to a single Impinj R700 RAIN RFID reader.
Deliver Solutions Cost-Effectively
