Multiprotocol Rail Reader, Wayside Applications Only
TransCore's Multiprotocol Rail Reader (MPRR) is a fully integrated, self-contained 902- to 928-MHz wireless radio frequency identification (RFID) reader that is specifically designed for rail applications. The MPRR is a replacement for TransCore’s AI1200 Reader/AR2200 RF Module systems.
The MPRR can read AAR format and SeGo protocol tags.
All MPRRs provide unparalleled flexibility by offering a real-time clock; expanded tag read buffering; programmable RF output power; programmable frequency range from 860.00 to 930.00 MHz1 in 250-kHz programmable frequency steps; system integrity checking; and programmable group select.
The MPRR employs advanced multiplexing techniques that improve reader performance at higher train speeds when compared to legacy products. In addition, this unique multiplexing mode provides the capability for one reader to manage up to four antennas, allowing a single reader to be used for two tracks.
The MPRR interfaces directly to TransCore’s TRU rail wayside automatic equipment identification (AEI) controller to provide a complete railroad AEI reader system to the North American railroads.
Multiprotocol Rail Readers are quickly and easily installed, tested, and maintained by TransCore trained, authorized personnel.
