Can a Single Module Read 1D and 2D Bar Codes and RFID Tags?

Posted By RFID Journal, 01.24.2013
Do you know of any fixed or integrated solutions that can read both 1D and 2D bar codes and simultaneously interrogate RFID tags, and that could be integrated into a custom instrument for medical purposes?

The short answer is no. There are handheld devices that can read passive tags as well as 1D or 2D bar codes, but I don't know of any modules that can be integrated into a device that includes all three. I believe that you will need to buy an RFID reader module and a 1D and 2D bar-code engine separately. If any of our readers know of a module capable of doing all three, they are invited to post information below.
