Molex Alien Technology Fixed RFID Reader

Molex Alien Technology Fixed RFID Readers are easy to set up and provide a wide range of capabilities and performance options. The ALR-F800 and ALR-F800-X are four-port enterprise-grade readers with dynamic self-optimization capabilities to provide the best possible performance in adverse RF conditions. 

When powered by PoE, they can transmit at much higher power levels than other readers, and they have a reconfigurable RF subsystem for performance upgrades and futureproofing. The ALR-F800-X adds edge service device capabilities to control additional readers, reducing infrastructure cost and complexity. 

For commercial applications, the ALR-9650 has a small footprint and blends into its environment while providing an integrated antenna and an option for a second external antenna. 

  • ALR-F800/ALR-F800-X: 4-port enterprise-grade readers 
  • Dynamic self-optimization for best possible RF performance 
  • Up to 31.5dBm output when PoE-powered 
    • Significantly higher than other readers 
  • Reconfigurable RF subsystem for performance upgrades and futureproofing 
  • ALR-F800-X: 2-in-1 reader and edge service device 
    • Controls multiple readers for simpler installation, operation, and maintenance 
  • ALR-9650: compact reader with integrated antenna for commercial environments
