Imagine what could be done with an RFID reader that: • Provided 100,000 times the receiver sensitivity of today’s UHF passive solutions — an unprecedented 50 dB.
• Enabled genuine wide area coverage — up to 250,000 sq. feet with a single system — with no line-of-sight restrictions.
• Delivered optimal performance despite natural interference, and, was one system that powers not only tag reads, but precision location detection, authentication and security plus electronic proof of delivery.
• Provided high transaction density support for item level tracking and supported multiple simultaneous business processes.
• Integrated seamlessly with enterprise systems.
Developed by experts in deep space communications, the Mojix STAR (Space Time Array Reader) RFID reader delivers these advances and more to define a new universe of capabilities for passive RFID deployments.
New digital signal processing techniques tap SPACETIME The technologies behind the Mojix STAR RFID reader include innovations in iterative signal processing, spacetime array techniques, smart antennas, digital beam forming, and digital packet radio breakthroughs. These technologies enable the system to detect very faint signals across vast distances in extremely noisy RF environments, and maximize the link budget to give the system its unprecedented indoor receiver sensitivity, accuracy and range.
Unlike conventional RFID readers, the STAR reader processes signals in four dimensions — utilizing time, frequency, polarization and the fourth dimension of space in processing received signals from RFID tags.
At the heart of a wide-area sensor network Unprecedented read range, coupled with the low-cost Mojix exciters and advanced location algorithms, translates into the ability to accomplish something unprecedented—asset tracking and visibility—using low cost passive tags instead of more expensive and proprietary active tags. With the Mojix STAR RFID receiver, the economics of item-level tracking make sense. This opens up new realms of possibility, including presence detection, accurate location tracking across large areas, with security and authentication. Furthermore, one system can support multiple business processes in the same location and overlay onto an existing system with no conflict High Tag Read Reliability The Mojix STAR reader provides exceptionally high read rates required to track thousands of inventory items and assets reliably
Wide Coverage Range A single STAR can cover a wide range of facilities from small retail boutiques to a large warehouse.
Optimized Price/Performance RTLS The Mojix system can be configured to match the location precision to the demands of business process from the lowest cost to the highest precision.
Simple, Low-Cost Scalability Coverage can be extended at any time simply by adding more eNodes and antennas at the edge. This allows the Mojix STAR RFID reader to scale with the business.
Enterprise Ready The Mojix system’s Master Controller (MCON) processes raw RFID data into industry standard ALE messages which are published to Mojix ViZix IoT Connected Business platform, or third-party software such as IBM WebSphere®, Oracle®, SAP® and a variety of warehouse management and logistics packages. System monitoring alerts can also be sent to health monitoring systems such as IBM Tivoli®
Rugged The Mojix STAR reader’s ruggedized, weatherproof design ensures reliability in harsh indoor/outdoor physical environments, including environments with high condensation and wind conditions. The operating temperature range of -30 to +60 C is the highest in the industry, and the MTBF is a long 132K hours, or about 15 years.
