Yes, the uPASS communication interface is compatible with TRANSIT readers. This allows to connect uPASS readers in existing TRANSIT installations. Therefore the TRANSIT compatibility mode is available. This mode allows any TRANSIT firmware to be used, for example P61, P81 or Q70.

Note: because the uPASS operating frequency differs from the TRANSIT readers, it is not possibile to read TRANSIT tags with uPASS readers.

More information about the TRANSIT compatibility mode can be find in the uPASS installation guide.

The read range of the uPASS readers can be adjusted. By default the reader is set to read full range, but this can be easily adjusted using UHFTOOL software. The UHFTOOL software can be downloaded from our partner portal.

There are two types of uPASS Target and uPASS Reach readers: Region 1 and Region 2/3.

There are three types of uPASS Access readers: Region 1, Region 2 and Region 3.

The difference between the reader regions is defined by the different UHF frequencies in use globally. To support these frequencies, the antenna hardware has a different implementation.

For example: in The Netherlands the UHF reader must comply with ETSI regulations which requires an operating frequency in the range of 865 to 868 MHz. This corresponds with Region 1.

To find out what region is required for the country your readers will be installed in, please consult the uPASS How To Order Guide.

Note: it is not possible to change the reader region after delivery, as this would require a hardware modification.
