The Alien ALR-9900 Enterprise Reader.
Interoperable and Broadly Supported
Alien pioneered the network-ready EPC RFID reader with the widely-supported Alien Reader Protocol. The ALR-9900 is supported by key RFID platforms including Microsoft BizTalk RFID, IBM WebSphere 6.0, Oat Systems, Oracle, GlobeRanger, BEA and many others. Proven support for SAP through 3rd-party middleware is also available. A well-documented SDK featuring .NET and Java libraries enables easy, custom interfaces to control the reader if desired.
The ALR-9900 provides the added simplicity of a monostatic antenna topology, which provides a smaller footprint and easier integration for certain applications such as small item tagging. Only one antenna per read point is required, reducing system cost and complexity. A proprietary, active, noise cancellation mechanism ensures high read rates from the monostatic antenna system.
Power and LAN Failsafe Mechanisms Protect Data
The loss of power or LAN connectivity does not lead to the loss of critical tag data. The ALR-9900 caches tag lists in non-volatile memory, preserving data even in the event of a power loss. When operating in Autonomous Mode, the reader will continue to collect tag data even if the LAN connection is interrupted.
