The maximum power consumption with the RS232 and RS485 versions is 150mA and with the Ethernet it is 400mA. The Interfaces support firmware upgrades and remote configuration.

The reader/writers are able to store up to 30,000 tags, which can be pre programmed with specific IDs based on customer requirements. The Bluebox is designed to help enterprises gain competitive advantage with the ability to read tags even in dense RF environments. Three programmable Multi-Colour LEDs and one Buzzer allow intuitive interaction of the Application with the reader/writer.
