  • Detection window - Not sure what the best way to test this would be, but in a totally unscientific test it can pick up a tag that is moving quite fast when it is within 1". Anything over 1" as long as it is moving at a steady rate it can typically pick up, but keep in mind you aren't likely to get more than 4" out of this reader. If you are using a conveyor belt of some sort I would imagine the reader would be capable of picking it up, but the aluminum will be a serious issue based on my results.

    Aluminum - I tested using both a card and fob. Attaching it to either the inside or the outside of an aluminum can (soda can) renders the RFID totally unusable at any range. However, I found that if I inserted a piece of printer paper that had been folded in half four times between the card and the can it functioned. So if you have some way of creating a standoff from the aluminum it might work.

No public wish lists :(
