RFID multiplexers: AdvanMux-16TM 

advanmux-16         AdvanMux-16-with-enclosure





AdvanMux-16 is a high performance 16 port multiplexer that expands by a factor 16 the number of antennas that can be connected to each port of an RFID reader.

AdvanMux-16 is easy to connect to practically every RFID reader in the market, including Impinj, Sirit, Motorola, ThingMagic Mercury6, and others.

AdvanMux-16 is connected to the I/O port of most reader models, and it is controlled by sending simple commands to the reader. This facilitates a lot the control of AdvanMux-16 and its synchronization with the reader. Any port of AdvanMux-16 can be selected at any time.

Business benefits of AdvanMux-16:

  • Reduces the cost of RFID applications with many antennas
  • Very fast and easy connection
  • Compatible with most reader models
  • Easy selection of ports by sending proper commands to the reader
  • Easy control of several  multiplexers by interconnecting them with standard Ethernet cables
  • Low insertion loss
