IF2 Network Reader


The Intermec IF2 is a compact, cost-effective network reader designed to support diverse RFID applications in both enterprise and industrial environments that require a scalable RFID system with a low cost per read point. The IF2 supports Power over Ethernet, four mono- or bi-static RF ports, built-in powered general purpose input output (GPIO) control, and both standards-based LLRP and Intermec's easy to use Basic Reader Interface (BRI) application interfaces, enabling scalable low-cost deployments for improved return on investment (ROI). The IF2 is packaged in a durable enclosure for nearly any environment and is factory configured to operate in regions across the globe.

The IF2 is based on an Intermec-designed radio frequency (RF) platform that offers best-in-class read performance and includes support for Intermec’s exclusive Advanced RFID Extensions (ARX), helping customers achieve a new level of visibility to the identification of RFID tags for greater accuracy of reading tags of interest over readers utilizing less-versatile commodity chipsets. Packaged in a small and lightweight, yet durable enclosure, the IF2 is suited for nearly any environment, including industrial warehouse and manufacturing operations and enterprise environments for asset and inventory management applications.
