Where Can I Find an RFID Interrogator With a Geiger Counter Function?

Posted By RFID Journal, 02.19.2013
Do you know if there is currently any reader available that would provide audio feedback about the items that it reads?

Motorola's handheld RFID readers have a Geiger counter function. As you get closer to a tag, the unit beeps louder and more frequently, helping you to pinpoint a specific tagged item.

Most ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) fixed RFID readers have input-output ports. Companies often use lights to indicate that a tag or a set of tags have been read, but you could connect the output port to a device that would provide an audible indicator of the read event.
