Introducing the new Stainless Steel Mercury

EPIC are proud to announce the addition of the CR510Ex to our product line.

The unit houses the well proven Mercury M2+ electronics which is designed for reading 13.56MHz MiFare RFID tags. Because of its RS485 serial data technology, a single instrument cable is only required and can be up to 700 meters long. This all means the unit is very versatile and ideal for external muster points including lifeboats, plus it can also be used for control point readers. Get A Quote..

Introducing our new Mobile RFID Reader

We have now introduced two Android based mobile RFID readers. The TC75ex is a zone 2 hazardous area scanner while the TC70 is the safe area version. Both units are fully compatible with our Smart-Trac POB Management and Electronic Mustering System and can be used for a variety of tasks such as mustering of personnel at lifeboats or muster points and control point management (IN / OUT tagging). The devices which are manufactured by Zebra/Bartec will now replace the end of life "iroc Ci70" which had served EPIC well over the years. View Advisory
