ThingMagic Mercury5e (M5e) (UHF)

The Mercury5e (M5e) is no longer recommended for new and existing designs.

We recommend the following replacement products with enhanced features and capabilities:

Features of the Mercury5e RFID reader module include:

  • Support for EPCglobal Gen 2 (ISO 18000-6C) tag protocol with anti-collision, DRM, and advanced anti-jamming capabilities
  • Two antenna connectors supporting one bistatic antenna or two monostatic antennas
  • Independently settable read and write transmit levels, adjustable from 5 dBm to 30 dBm (1W) with an accuracy of +/- 1 dBm
  • Support for full 860 to 960 MHz UHF RFID carrier frequency range to accommodate worldwide regulations
  • Certifiable for operation in countries adopting FCC, ETSI and Korean regulatory specifications (others pending)
  • TTL level asynchronous data interface supporting speeds up to 921.6 kbps
  • Operating temperature range of -20 C to +60 C
  • Maximum tag read rate of over 200 tags per second
  • Maximum tag read distance of over 30 feet (9 m) with 6 dBi antenna
  • 4 GPIO lines controlled through data interface

Features of the Mercury 5e-EU (EU region-specific version):

  • RF Interface frequency pre-configured for the following regions:
    • ETSI (EU) EN 302 208: 865.6-867.6 Mhz
    • ETSI (EU) EN 300 220: 869.85 Mhz
    • Open (custom) 863-870 MHz
  • Regulatory
