The Elpas RF IP Reader is a supervised; 433MHz fixed indoor RTLS receiver. The reader is designed to detect and relay real- time ‘Location’ and ‘State’ data from Elpas Active RFID Tags to Elpas Safety & Security software platforms or other medical management systems.

The reader supports standard IT network communications and is easily integrated onto wired or wireless Ethernet/Wi-Fi networks for relaying data to and from the host application.

The RF IP Reader can be surface mounted onto solid ceilings, flush mounted into dropped (false) ceilings or hung onto solid and hollow walls. The reader supports large tag populations at read distances up to 20m/65ft (360° coverage area) in open office environments and is remotely configurable for customized applications. On-board I/O ports enable the monitoring of one general purpose analogue input and control of two open- collector digital switched outputs.

The Elpas RF IP Reader supports XML messaging technology for integrating RTLS visibility data with medical management applications. The reader also supports data transmission with up to fifteen Elpas BUS devices (such as RF or IR Readers, IO Boxes, Elpas Display Panels and LF Exciters) using RS-485 Junction Boxes.
