I received the USB RFID ME as I hoped. Thanks to the vendor for clearing that up.
The product I received was both more than and less than I hoped.
Ordered RFID ME Gen2 card reader hoping for a simple keyboard emulator to pickup RFID and type into a web page form.
This requires a middleware application (USB type must be running on Windows - tough in an all Mac shop).
Middleware is extensively configurable and will also write ID's.
Can't get it to simply run as a keyboard input though, which is critical.
It did read my Gen 2 ISO 18000-6C cards, which is great!
Overall, still looking for a simple, platform independent, ISO 18000-6C keyboard emulator without all the programming.
Thanks again to MTI & Darryn for fixing up the order.
This item was key for everday scanning - easy to carry around.
It plugged and played - no issues.
pRFID is great for "no line of sight" - where barcode doesn't work - for back of shelf, "stolen / shrinkage" item identification, etc.
We use a combo tag with both IUID (DataMatrix) and RFID for "high theft items", and our QR Code / RFID tag was the best for IT Asset Tracking.
The open source demo software is easily compiled, and I've found several groups to interface with typical IT integration solutions - i.e. RFO BASIC, etc.
(google is your friend)
So you don't have to use the "starter" software - remember, RFID involves real physics (radio waves), so it's expected to tweak the parameters.
Additionally, there are antenna solutions, both for reader and EPC-2 tags, and orientation / metal stand off is a key configuration item.
Remember, software guys don't screw in light bulbs, they get a hardware guy to do it...
I recommend visiting your local MAKER scene in your city... This is the ultimate alpha techie tool...
