The xSpan Gateway is a high performance RAIN RFID reader system with an integrated phased array antenna. The phase array antenna supports thirteen beams organized into three sectors.
Each beam can be either horizontally or vertically polarized. An on-board processor controls the beam direction, orientation and polarization.
The system has the capability to steer its antenna beam along a single axis to read RFID tags over a rectangular area and detect item movement.
The gateway can be mounted on a ceiling or a wall with power and control through a Power over Ethernet (PoE) connection.
