The gateway of the viewneo RFID system is the interface between the RFID readers and the Internet. Detected signals – for example the lifting of a product – are sent by the sensors to the connected gateway. Connected to the viewneo Digital Signage Cloud via the Internet, this gateway now sends the signals to where they are then recorded as a trigger. This allows, for example, a monitor to display a certain content when a product is lifted.
1 gateway is enough for up to 30 readers
Only one gateway is required for every 30 readers. Communication between the readers and the gateway takes place via a CAN bus line. The maximum length of the CAN bus is 500 meters. This is the distance between the first element in the bus - e.g. the gateway - and the last element (last reader).
More information about the RFID gateway can be found in the viewneo online documentation.
A manual for setting up the device can be found here.
