 FEIG UHF RFID Readers and Modules

The FEIG family of RFID devices includes modules, fixed readers, and antennas.  FEIG combines a sturdy, stable hardware design with frequently updated hardware and software.  Free software and training materials, available upon purchase, shows the capability of the readers and the low level messages needed to implement that functionality.  Development kits for C# and C++ are available under NDA.

In GlueLogix designs, FEIG technology is used to provide a consistent software interface across UHF and HF, including most standard HF protocols.  FEIG has a broad and deep offering.  The devices shown here are the most often used in GlueLogix designs for Label, Card and Plastics companies. If you need a different FEIG device, please
contact us for a quote.

Unless otherwise noted, all UHF hardware works only with UHF Gen2 chips.

Module MU02

The MU02 is an inexpensive and versatile reader-encoder for EPC Class 1 Generation 2 chips.  In GlueLogix designs, MU02 is used for near field read and encode of tags on the production line.  It has also been deployed as a narrow portal reader.

  • Frequency range is 860-928 MHz
  • Inventories in 70 mS with one or a few tags
  • USB models are Full Speed and Bus Powered with composite device endpoints, requiring Feig DLLs for interface
  • TTL RS232 models are 4800 to 230400 baud
  • 3 transmit power settings: 170 mW (22 dbm) down to about 10 mW (10 dbm)
  • Power consumption max. 2 W
  • CE Mark is Class 2
  • FCC ID PJMMU02
  • 2 U.FL antenna ports, software selected
  • 5VDC supply
  • Conforms to the common footprint of the GlueLogix HF Reader Case  but requires custom antenna connections.
