Simplifying RFID Integration into Existing Systems
RAINstream is an optional on-reader application that streamlines data transfer and simplifies the integration of the ThingMagic RAIN UHF RFID reader into existing systems.
With RAINstream, tag data can be sent to a back-end processing system using standard connections and protocols. RAINstream eliminates the need for interpretation code at the host or server, thus saving time and cost in implementation and maintenance.
The data stream output can be customized to provide a range of tag data and status conditions, for maximum utility and efficiency.
Reading can be continuous, continuous only when a GPI line is active, or for a timed duration when a GPI line goes active.
Reader, network and RFID protocol settings are configured and saved through a web interface that is sourced by the reader. Once the RAINstream license is applied, it remains in effect for the entire life of the product, even as new features are added to the product through firmware upgrades.
