• The BC5516-Cotag is a loop reader kit that consists of a BC270 loop coupler and a BC5311 reader interface. It reads Siemens unique Cotag cards and tags (active only) which offer ultimate convenience and cost-efficiency. It has a reading range of up to three meters depending of the construction of the loop.
• The BC270 loop coupler allows simple wireloop antennas to be used for applications such as access loops around doors and roadway loops for vehicle (AVI) systems. The transmit range is adjustable. It is easy to monitor TX and RX status via onboard LEDs.
• The BC5311 reader interface allows Cotag technology reading heads to integrate into non-Cotag systems. Popular data interfaces ensure easy integration with most host systems.
