    • Small Size

      Measuring just ~2.75” x 2.4” (7 cm x 6cm) the Insight is easy to fit into your design.
    • Low Power Consumption

      We designed the Insight for battery use. With "instant on" functionality, a low-power sleep mode, and a very efficient RF amplifier scheme, the TR-50 is perhaps the most power efficient RFID engine on the market today.
  • High Performance

    Up to 190 tags-per-second read rate. Over 0.5 Watt power output for long range applications.
  • Highly Sensitive Receiver Architecture

    Dense Reader Mode receiver filtering for good performance in multi-reader environments.
  • Extremely Low-current IDLE Mode for Battery Use

  • Designed for Global Operation

    The TR-50's frequency range spans US, China and EU bands allowing you to use just one SKU to make your product ready for world-wide sales.
  • Flexible

    A diverse set of interface options provides you with great flexibility in building your solution:
    • Multiple communication interfaces: RS232 or TTL (x2) and USB 2.0
    • Multiple Power Options: Power over USB / External 5V DC / Battery
  • Developer-Friendly

    The Insight features a simple and powerful control protocol and well-documented APIs in multiple languages. (Java, Ruby, VB6 and C#) Units can be configured for autonomous operation; providing data only on external trigger conditions. The API supports device configuration, tag reading and programming (including extended memory areas).
