Intelligent Integrated RFID Reader with GPS

CS208-3G is a member of the CS208 family with 3G Mobile Connectivity and GPS. CS208-3G is the first truly INTELLIGENT INTEGRATED Reader in the world with embedded edge server and a wide selection of connectivities, including 3G/GSM/GPRS, SMS, Ethernet, USB and Serial. With bulilt-in GPS, the location of the reader can be identified when used outdoor. The reader is an All Weather and MIL-STD-810 Ruggedized RFID reader with long read range and high read rate. The CS208-3G reader is extremely versatile and can be Plug & Play deployed in all environments, mobile or stationary, remote or local, outdoor or indoor.  The integrated reader can be used in highway toll station, bus stops, container port, slaughter house,  warehouse dock door, forklift car, parking lot gate, onboard waste disposal vehicle, livestock farm, slaughter house, container port, etc. CS208-3G is uniquely offered with either left hand or right hand circular polarization, thus allowing it to be deployed in the most extreme dense reader environment – face to face close range deployment.
