Maximum reads per second?

For one of our experiments, we have been trying to maximize the number of reads per second from a single RFID tag using an Impinj Speedway reader. At the moment, the best we are able to do is about 1 read per second (if there are more tags in range, we’ll get more reports per second). Has anyone in the community managed to get a higher sampling rate (=higher read rates) and could share their ADD_ROSPEC message?  Our ADD_ROSPEC is posted below .

    I discovered that changing the “TagTransitTime” enables me to control the maximum number of times the reader reads the tag. For large values of transit time, the reader returned a read rate of rougly 2 reads/second. But with smaller (non-zero) values I was able to attain rates larger than 200 reads/second.
    PS: I am using the Impinj Speedway reader with session 2 and mode index 0.

  2. Atul Ingle says:

    Correction. It’s the session type which enables me to do that, not the tag transit time.

    You could also change the search mode to Dual Target:
    searchMode.InventorySearchMode = ENUM_ImpinjInventorySearchType.Dual_Target;

    Note that when SarchMode = Dual_Target then session setting does not matter (is ignored by reader).
