Siemens Announces New UHF RFID Transponder, Handheld Reader
Siemens is adding high-memory transponders and a compact mobile reader for logistics and service applications to its Simatic RF600 portfolio of EPC Gen 2 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID products.
The handheld RF650M model features a color touchscreen with a resolution of 240 pixels by 320 pixels, a rugged keypad and a large trigger button. To save space, Siemens reports, users can fold down the RFID antenna so that the device measures only 147 millimeters by 60 millimeters by 39 millimeters (5.8 inches by 2.4 inches by 1.5 inch) in size, so it can easily be carried in a pocket. The handheld weighs 235 grams (8.3 ounces), including the rechargeable battery that can power the device for of up to nine hours of operation—at least the length of one shift. Users can create their own applications for the device based on the Microsoft Windows Embedded operating system. For servicing work, the supplied RFID software can also be used for reading and writing from and to transponders.
