The Venture Research        Surface Trak™ brings the State of the Art Integrated Reader/Antenna Solution.

At only 9/16” tall, the Venture Research Surface Trak™ can sit on any desktop surface or be incorporated into a cabinet allowing real time tracking of material in the following industries:
• Health Care and Pharmaceutical                                                                                   • MRO Tool Management                                                                                                    • Tool Crib / Check in /Check out systems
• File and Document tracking
• Specimen management and many more

BLE (Low Energy Bluetooth) Support

For the first time, an RFID reader can support both passive tags and active BLE (low energy bluetooth) tags, with the Venture Research Surface Trak. Critical assets can now be tracked using BLE along with UHF Passive Tags.

Integrated LED Edges Allow Visibility To Users Of Tracking activity

The Surface Trak lets the customer track tools without the hassle of needing extra storage allowing the client to save time during the day.

Daisy Chain of Surfaces

Along with communication options of Ethernet (including POE), Wifi and Cellular, the shelf reader allows daisy chaining of many shelves via a simple CAN bus interface. Up to 3 surfaces can be tied together on a single cable to cover large work areas.

Direct Cloud Communication

The Surface Trak has built in store and forward capability allowing collection even when the network is unavailable. Direct interfacing allows the Surface Reader to post the information to a simple REST web service, eliminating Middleware.

Multiple Configurations Available

Twelve Standard sizes available, as well as tuning to ETSI frequencies.

Additional Sensors

Along with RFID reading, the Surface Reader has 3 thermal sensors, optional proximity detection and GPIO for 2 inputs and 2 outputs.
