CipherLab Showcases Android Computer With NFC, UHF RFID Bluetooth Reader

CipherLab, a company that designs, manufactures and markets automatic-identification and data-capture products and systems, exhibited its 1862 Bluetooth UHF RFID handheld reader and RS50 Android Touch Computer with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

The reader has a read range of 16.5 feet, which facilitates data collection and enables users to collect data from hard-to-reach locations. According to the company, the data-collection process is simplified by the ability to read manifold and various EPC Gen 2 (ISO 18000-6C) tags simultaneously. CipherLab's 1860 series of RFID systems is designed to make applications such as asset management and item-level tagging quicker and easier.

"The deployment of RFID technologies has been picking up in environments such as warehouse operation, logistics, manufacturing, and retailing industries," said Luis Wu, the firm's VP and general manager, in a prepared statement. "UHF RFID systems are getting more attention due to the benefits it could generate and the improvement that has been made. We aim to fulfil as many needs and expand our products to better serve our customers."

CipherLab's RS50 Android Touch Computer is equipped with a 1D and 2D bar-code reader and can data in milliseconds, the company reports, even if a bar code is poorly printed. Users can capture high-resolution photos, videos and signatures via the RS50's 8-megapixel camera, for proof of delivery and service. Additionally, it offers HF RFID (13.4 MHz) capabilities, while supporting contactless NFC applications of peer-to-peer mode and card emulation.
