Where Can I Find a Forklift RFID Reader?

Posted By RFID Journal, 07.01.2015

What are the best options available in terms of readers that can be installed in forklifts or buggies, can be powered by the battery of a vehicle itself and can transmit the collected data wirelessly via Wi-Fi?

Venture Research offers a passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) reader designed for use on a forklift. Intermec (now part of Honeywell Scanning and Mobility) offers one as well, called the IV7 Vehicle Mount RFID Reader. Both of these use a vehicle's electrical system for power. Zebra Technologies offers the battery-operated RF5000 (developed by Motorola, which it acquired).
