Farsens is pleased to announce that RFID readers from Kathrein have been included in the AnyReader SW approved reader list.

Customers using Kathrein RFID readers can now test with battery-free RFID sensors without having to change to other manufacturer’s readers.

The AnyReader free SW (you can download it here) has been updated using the RRU4-Series from Kathrein to develop the new reader class. As usual, after connecting the RRU4-Series via Ethernet, the latest version of the free AnyReader SW will display an option to connect to the RRU4-Series.

Kathrein readers approved for AnyReader SW

The same SW has proven to work with the ARU4-Series without issues. Since both reader series from Kathrein share the same communication protocol (KBPR) and the same configuration options the SW performs correctly independently of the series used.

Moreover, ARU4-Series, ARU-CSB-Series, ERU-Series, M-ARU-Series all embed KBPR so the AnyReader SW is expected to run with all of those featuring an Ethernet connection.
