Share post:

Impinj, Inc., a leading RAIN RFID provider and Internet of Things pioneer, today announced the Impinj R720 RAIN RFID reader. With more processing power and memory than Impinj’s prior-generation reader, the Impinj R720 speeds edge processing and reduces network load and latency, allowing on-reader applications to meet the most demanding requirements of large-scale enterprise deployments.

“Enterprises see increasing demand for reliable, real-time data about every item they manufacture, transport and sell,” said Jeff Dossett, Impinj chief revenue officer. “The Impinj R720 reader delivers powerful edge processing to support application software and algorithms that collect and manage enterprise data at the source. Backed by Impinj’s industry-leading readability, the Impinj R720 further expands the capabilities of Impinj’s RAIN RFID platform.”

Industry-leading readability, enterprise-grade processing power and reliability

The Impinj R720 reader discovers, engages, and protects connected items, packages, and pallets, delivering data accurately and efficiently to enterprise systems. It enables autonomous reading of item-level data at dock doors, conveyors, and other transition points in shipping and warehousing environments, where items are moving, densely packed, or blocked by other items.

Compatible with the GS1 UHF Gen2v2 protocol (which ISO/IEC standardized as 18000-63) the Impinj R720 builds on the proven capabilities of the Impinj R700 reader, enabling enterprises to:

  • Ensure accurate and reliable RAIN system performanceIndustry-leading receive sensitivity and advanced features enable reading connected items farther and faster.
  • Leverage critical edge intelligence3× more processing power via the advanced Qualcomm® QCS404 quad core processor and up to 2× more on-reader memory enable embedded applications that transform RAIN data into actionable business intelligence while delivering enterprise-grade security and reliability.
  • Simplify enterprise IoT solution development and deploymentsDeveloper-friendly tools, multi-antenna support, rich connectivity, and easy transition between Impinj R700 and R720 enable quick and efficient IoT solution development and speed time-to-market.
