Functions and features

The multiprotocol-capable RFID reader DTE830 / DTE930 reads active and passive ID tags in different frequency ranges:

  • Europe: 865 – 868 MHz
  • USA: 902 – 928 MHz
  • Australia: 916 – 927 MHz

On delivery the device can read and write ID tags according to the EPC Gen2 standard. Further protocols can be imported via software updates.

The device communicates with the ID tags via transmitting and receiving antennas which are connected to the max. 4 antenna connections.

The device is designed for indoor use.

Because of the requirements for electromagnetic interference emissions, the device is intended for use in industrial environments. The device is not suitable for use in domestic areas.
