hospitals and clinics. Driven by ThingMagic's leading modular radios
Astra readers offer Power over Ethernet (PoE) and WiFi options allowing
for flexible, low cost, installations. Finished and embedded RFID readers
from ThingMagic RFID readers have been selected by many hospitals and
healthcare solution providers for a wide range of applications including
