R3 Product Information
The R cubed products primarily serve 3 Industrial applications:
Certainly not limited to these 3 applications, the R cubed products excel at any industrial identification need where tough, 100% dependable systems are necessary. R Cubed stands for Rapid, Robust and Reliable.
|R3 Read Heads/Antennas
The Read Head is responsible for broadcasting the RF signal and communicating with (sensing) the Tag. If one of these Read Head packages fit your needs, let us know and we will be happy to customize a package for you. Click here for the technical specifications.
The first two Models listed do not need a Read Head as one is integrated into the pcb.
For Reader specifications click here.
There are a multitude of Interfaces, some of which incorporate their own Reader in a single pcb or housing. Each incorporate just about every protocol specification available including protocols of RS232, RS422, RS485, hex or bcd parallel outputs, all baud rates to 9600, modes of operation ranging from simple slave peripherals to intelligent command sets with polling requests, synchronous communications, self tests, etc.
Specifications for Programmer/Hand Held Reader Model 3036E
This Programmer operates stand alone, without the use of a PC, via AC connection or by use of batteries.

R3 TAG DATA AND PROGRAMMING
Tag Data and Programming
With the serial Interfaces, data is sent back to a serial port in the following format: <LF>nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn<CR>, where variable n represents data. If a multiplex system is being used, the Tag data is preceded by a hexadecimal character indicating the Read Station and a space character. If you intend to have Tags programmed at our factory. Orders cannot be accepted until this sheet has been filled out and submitted. This sheet can also be accessed on our web site under the R3 link. Read the instructions on page 10 of this document and fill out the programming sheet on page 11.
With parallel Interfaces, data is sent back in a binary format: 0000 0001 0111 1111 represents 17F as the first 4 digits are reserved for multiplex addresses if applicable.
Instructions for Transponder Programming
These instructions have been made for the purpose of helping our users to order the correct programming information on their RFID Tags. When you order a Tag from us we will ask you to supply the programming numbers you wish to be encoded into the Tag’s memory.
RFID’s Tags have a memory which contains 16 characters. All 16 of those characters must be used. It is a common misbelief that if you want the identification number 99 (ninety-nine) all you need to tell us is “99.”
Not so. We need to know how to fill in the remaining 14 characters. Most users simply desire zeros to be filled into the unused characters, other require dashes. We also need to know whether or not you desire the number 99 to be right, left or center justified.
For example, right justified is:
Left justified is:
Center justified is:
Tags intended for use with our Model 2024E Parallel Interface must be right justified and limited to 4 characters in the simplex mode and 3 characters in the multiplex mode, 0 thru 9 and A thru F.
If you are a current user and do not know the exact programming format your company uses, ask an engineer or technician who works with our equipment. Once you learn this, please keep it in min or noted somewhere for future orders. If you have ordered direct from RFID before, our customer service department can look up your last order and help you determine what programming format to use.
Following is a programming sheet you also need to fill out, sign, and remit with your order.
Note, users of 8 character Tags, please specify on your order that you require 8 character programming by adding a “(8)” to the end fo our Model Number or Part Number. For example, our Model 1792 Tag should be ordered as a 1792(8). Also please fill out the programming sheet filling in only 8 characters. For example the number 99 right justified would be 00000099.
