    Detailed functionality

    Featuring a pair of tuned antennas coupled with a premium low-loss coax cable, the RFID Range Extender has applications across multiple industries:

    • Pen Testing:
      • The slim-profile (0.8mm) antennas can be easily hidden, allowing for discrete reading / sniffing of target tags.
      • The antennas can be placed behind / on top of existing readers to sniff legitimate badge scans
    • Industrial:
      • Boost the reading range of devices with underpowered embedded readers / antennas
      • Protect devices by keeping them in a more practical / safe / clean environment, and only exposing the reading element.
    • Practical:
      • Social-distance aware reading: allow clients to scan badges without approaching or touching the host device
      • Create a physically separated "reading zone" for devices with sensitive antennas, such as mobile phones
