Keyboard Wedge with Speedway Connect Software [VIDEO]

Do you currently use a barcode scanner to capture product UPC data?  Do you want to capture EPC (RFID) tag data instead?  Then Speedway Connect software might be just what you're looking for.

Speedway Connect is software that runs on the Impinj Speedway Revolution reader.  Speedway Connect reads EPC data from RFID tags and will output it to your computer as if it is being typed (US Keyboard).  For example, this is useful for applications that already rely on keyboard entry or "wedge" data entry such as barcode scanners. This video explains how to set up Speedway Connect software to send EPC data via keyboard emulation (aka keyboard wedge) to your computer.  What you do with that data is now up to you!

Instead of having to write additional code in your existing application to handle RFID, let Speedway Connect software simplify and streamline the process by giving you that data directly!  For more information, please contact Impinj at

NOTE: The following video shows connecting to the Speedway Connect web UI using the following URL:

http://<reader host name>:8080.  

For more recent Speedway Connect versions (version 1.0.4 and newer), you need to use the following URL to access the Speedway Connect web UI:

https://<reader host name>

Notice, this is now a secure (https://) connection and the port (:8080) is no longer needed.  The first time you connect to the Speedway Connect web UI, your browser will inform you that the SSL certificate is self-signed (not signed by a trusted third party). To get around this, just click “Add an exception” in your browser and once you add it to your approved list, you should not see that message again.
