Modular Sensor Infrastructure

The RA-R436 is a 2400MHz active RFID transceiver compatible with Bluetooth Low Energy devices*. We call it a reelceiver because it can be daisy-chained with other reelceivers using standard Cat5e cables to create a reel. Each RA-R436 has a globally unique identifier and detects all compatible wireless devices in range, including their received signal strength (RSSI).  Devices in range are located to the nearest reelceiver transparently and calibration-free. Power and communications are transferred over a single cable: simply connect and forget. Compliance for global operation. Available with custom factory-configured options at scale.

All reelyActive reelceivers are compatible with one another and interface seamlessly with our suite of open source software.

* Specifically devices which transmit Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) advertising packets

Can be factory-programmed to support alternative proprietary radio protocols in the 2400MHz ISM band.  Contact us for details.

The RA-R432 is identical but uses the 915MHz band for operation in the Americas.

The RA-R434 is identical but uses the 868MHz band for operation in Europe and other ETSI regions.  Contact us for details.
