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 Pareto platform and suite of open source software thanks to the reel architecture and protocol.

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

Variants

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.
