RACE RESULT - Reader Performance Testing


Keep Up RAIN RFID Readers with Best Marathon Event Performance

Deeper Investigations

LEDs indicate immediately whether a reader is suitable for the use in the application. In case of an issue indicated by a red LED signal on the Reader Checker, a deeper investigation is possible by connecting the reader to the computer to figure out whether the problem was due to output power, sensitivity, wrong frequency, read-rate, or an air interface parameter. Overall, the use of the RAIN RFID Reader Checker and its basic performance checks ensures that only unsuspicious decoders from distributors are shipped and decoder downtime is avoided.

RFID Technology at the Limit

“We are the global innovation leader in sports timing. Our area of application pushes RFID technology to its limits. A reader that works flawlessly is essential for us” says Nikias Klohr, CTO at RACE RESULT. “With the RAIN Xplorer Reader Checker, we can quickly and easily check whether the readers in our decoders are ok. Especially, because the device is so small and handy, we can test dozens of rental devices in our warehouse in a short time.”
