3M CR1000 RFID UHF Reader

Ideal UHF reader for FASTag, Tolling and Parking systems...

3M™ CR1000 is designed for enterprise class applications and features best-in-class air interface performance.

In addition, the robust, software radio-based architecture provides a rich application platform that addresses the needs of today’s deployments and ensures that future features and capabilities can be added as RFID technology evolves in the future.

Designed with parking and gated entrances in mind, the Compact RFID Reader 1000 line has models supporting frequencies and communications standards worldwide. The 865-868 MHz model is suitable for operation within India and other regions compatible with ETSI regulations. The Compact RFID Reader 1000 offers a wide portfolio of configuration and enterprise management tools that changes the paradigm of RFID system installation and management. For the end-user who needs a quick, out-of-the box solution, this reader provides an intuitive installation wizard allowing the user to be able to begin reading tags within minutes.



The Compact RFID Reader 1000 is available in 4- and 8-port versions. Eight port models can support up to eight antennas in mono-static mode or four bi-static (4x2), while the four port device supports four mono-static or two bi-static antennas. The Compact RFID Reader 1000 easily integrates into most parking and closed loop UHF installations including access control systems as well as small tolling applications and many others.

FASTag Reader:

The Compact RFID Reader 1000 is ideal choice for FASTag ecosystem. The reader is deployed in multiple Toll Plazas in India and across for faster processing of FASTags at the toll plazas. The Compact RFID Reader CR1000 is proven in the Indian tolling space from the initial days when electronic tolling was introduced in India. The reader found futher ground and acceptance with the advent of FASTag based tolling system.
