UHF-band RFID Reader/Writers

UHF-band RFID Reader/Writers

Under a revision of Japan’s Radio Act (ministerial ordinance), mirror sub-carrier-type and medium-output handy reader/writers (250mW) can be distributed at high density over a limited area. With the arrival of such devices, UHF-band RFID usage is spreading widely, for use in mobile bodies and other applications.
At Ryoden, we offer a wide range of solutions, including the latest EPC-compliant hardware, tags optimized for each application (tags for metal applications, tags for heat-resistant applications, etc.) and peripheral devices.

UHF-band reader/writers compliant with global standards

In manufacturing, some operators are considering introduction of RFIDs on the precondition that they can be used overseas.
Ryoden provides reader/writers that are compliant with global standards.
