Kathrein provides free of charge a configuration and installation software called “ReaderStart“ with every reader for easy-to-start application developments. All management parameters of the reader, e.g. setting the IP address, can be configured as well as all RFID-specific values in order to prepare the reader for its application. By using predefined templates such as gate application for goods or access control for vehicle/person identification, an RFID reading result can be achieved very quickly, even if an application software is not yet available. The ReaderStart Software is the Swiss army knife for use with RAIN RFID readers from Kathrein Solutions.
