ThingMagic® RAINstream Software
RAINstream is JADAK’s solution for integrating ThingMagic® RAIN UHF RFID reader data into back-end processing systems using a variety of standard connections and protocols, simplified with an easy web interface for configuring settings sourced by ThingMagic readers.
Tag data can be sent through a customized data stream output, thus eliminating the need for interpretation at the host or server level, accelerating overall system speed.
With several options for reading, such as continuous, continuous while GPI line is active, or set for time duration when GPI line becomes active, RAINstream provides a variety of behaviors based on specific application requirements.
Reader, network and RFID protocol settings are configured and saved through the 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.

CASE STUDY: RFID for a safer school environment
RFID tags were affixed to the childrens’ bicycles and each time they rode through the school gate, a special custom-designed RFID cabinet containing a fixed reader would log the arrival of that child.
CASE STUDY: RFID for train car location and tracking
Train cars were equipped with an RFID tag and JADAK IZAR RFID readers were placed at multiple locations along the tracks. Combined with smart user software, this allows RSN to quickly retrieve the correct location of a train car.

How RFID can improve supply chain and patient safety in the COVID era
Today’s custom RFID applications have found new and greater significance in the medical space. By enabling item-level visibility, health organizations can directly enhance human biosafety and make their supply chains more accurate and responsive. But these applications are far from the over-the-counter solutions that can be found online. To reap these RFID benefits, custom engineering shops leverage several technologies, like AI and blockchain, in tandem with RFID tags hardened against harsh environments, to make the tracking of small things possible and bringing the story of their data to life.
