Customer Comments

  • What is the max distance a tag can be away from the reader and still read properly?

    • The max range is about 4.5", but this can vary. I would design with the assumption of only within an inch or two at most to be on the safe side.

  • Good Afternoon. Is this Reader compatible with Series 2 Xbee Modules?????
