We Are CAEN RFID!

“I still remember when we began this adventure 15 years ago. There were no reference points, no communication standards. No real life applications. So we started by doing what we knew better: developing state of the art technologies. Today the scenario has changed. The technology is mature and new vertical sectors in which the RFID technology improves processes efficiency continuously emerge. In the meantime the expertise of our team evolved so that we are always ready to face the new challenges. We are excited to deal with this challenging task supporting our clients with a unique mix of strong technology skills, high quality products and well known Italian creativity.”

Adriano Bigongiari

Supplier of RAIN RFID (UHF) Technology

CAEN RFID was founded in 2006 as a private-owned Italian company, but its activities started in 2003 as the RFID division of CAEN SpA. It was the first European company to design, produce and market a UHF RFID reader. CAEN RFID is a partner of the most important associations, including EPCglobal and ETSI, participating to the definition of standards.

The Management, Technical and Commercial teams are young, dynamic and greatly experienced with everyday RFID applications. All our staff have been previously involved with CAEN SpA, world leader in electronic instrumentation for nuclear and particle physics. CAEN electronics is always at the forefront of technology and has become a “de facto” standard in the most prominent physics labs worldwide.

In 2012, CAEN RFID obtained the ISO9001:2008 Quality Certification. This award has driven CAEN RFID to supply products and services of great quality to our customers, who we consider our greatest asset.

In 2015, DATALOGIC became a shareholder of CAEN RFID through the acquisition of 20% of the company with the purpose of company development and growth.

The product portfolio of CAEN RFID includes:

  • easy2read© RAIN RFID keyfob readers, handheld and desktop readers
  • easy2read© integrated RAIN RFID USB/Bluetooth interrogators and fixed readers
  • easy2log© temperature loggers and RAIN RFID e-seals

CAEN RFID has developed its easy2read© and easy2log© product lines according to the RAIN RFID standards. Our team of engineers designs state-of-the-art devices and provides continuous support and feedback to customers. This provides our customers with a better understanding of RAIN RFID technology and our products, enabling a more efficient and optimal performance usage.

The quality of our products, the consultancy service at the time of purchase and the after-sales support are among our top priority objectives.
