Jadak Announces New Bluetooth RFID and Bar-code Reader for Health-Care Applications

Jadak, a manufacturer of machine vision, RFID and bar-code scanning products for the health-care and life-sciences industries, has announced the HS-2R, a cordless Bluetooth RFID reader and linear (1D) and matrix (2D) bar-code scanner designed specifically for health care. The HS-2R is designed to help medical technicians improve workflows, according to the company, and is suitable for point of care, blood tracking, drug inventory, reagent scanning, surgical part tracking and more.

The HS-2R, which Jadak says is the world's first cordless Bluetooth RFID reader and 1D and 2D bar-code scanner designed specifically for health care, reads and writes to 13.56 MHz high-frequency (HF) RFID tags, including those supporting the ISO 14443A, ISO 15693 and ISO 18000-3 standards, as well as the Felica specification. The handheld, which measures 4.6 inches by 2.0 inches by 1.3 inches (116.8 millimeters by 51.3 millimeters by 33.4 millimeters), features a sealed medical-grade housing with an IP 54 rating to protect it from exposure to liquids and multiple drops onto hard hospital floors.

The new dual-function device will be made available later this month, the company reports, and can be tailored to meet specific customer requirements.
