Impinj R700 Series RAIN RFID Readers

Designed for RAIN RFID deployments that demand industry-leading performance, Impinj R700 and R720 readers deliver reliability, security, and advanced capabilities that meet the increasing demands of large-scale enterprise solutions.

Read tags faster, from farther away, and speed time-to-solution

Impinj R700 series readers provide best-in-class tag readability, enterprise security, and modern developer tools. IoT developers can easily build and deploy custom enterprise applications with a Linux OS, REST API, and native support for industry-standard data formats and protocols such as MQTT. Powerful processing and expansive on-reader memory enable embedded applications that transform RAIN data into actionable business intelligence. When combined with tags based on Impinj M800 series tag chips, the Impinj R700 series advances RAIN RFID performance at dock doors, conveyors, and store exits where items are moving or densely packed. Impinj R700 series readers build on the heritage of the Impinj Speedway reader family, which has been proven reliable since its introduction in 2006. 


Why use Impinj R700 series readers?

Impinj R700 series readers discover, engage, and protect connected items, packages, and pallets, delivering data accurately and efficiently to enterprise systems. Available in two versions, Impinj R700 and R720 readers:  

  • Ensure accurate and reliable performance. Users can leverage market-leading sensitivity, powerful edge processing, and high-speed network connectivity to enable fast, high-throughput reading of small RAIN RFID tags at long distances.

  • Simplify IoT solution development. IoT developers can easily connect applications and speed up time-to-solution with the Impinj IoT Device Interface, which enables configuration of reader settings, viewing of tag data, and management of security certificates, reader events, and alarms. 

  • Leverage critical edge intelligence. The Impinj R700 series supports autonomous reading deployments with high-performance processing and expansive application memory that collects and manages enterprise data at the source.
