GAO RFID Launches New 2.45 GHz Active Readers
GAO RFID has announced a new range of RFID readers that the company says is capable of identifying GAO's proprietary 2.45 GHz battery-powered RFID tags from a distance of up to 100 meters (328 feet) away. Included in this family of readers is the 2.45 GHz Gain Adjustable RFID Reader with Wi-Fi capabilities (product ID: 217002), the Handheld 2.45 GHz RFID Reader (product ID: 217005) that also functions as a bar-code scanner, and the Portable 2.45 GHz USB RFID Reader (product ID: 217003). Each model can be used for a variety of applications that require the identification and tracking of assets, inventories and monitoring, the company reports.
The new handheld reader is a sturdy, dust-proof and waterproof handheld unit built for onsite use that comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and economical power consumption, according to GAO RFID. The device is equipped with a USB 2.0 port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and optional GPS capabilities, and uses a Microsoft Windows-based operating system that runs the RFID data-collection software. It also features 1D and 2D bar-code scanning capabilities for applications requiring both RFID and bar-code technologies. Other optional add-ons enable the integration of high-frequency (HF) or low-frequency (LF) RFID modules, allowing it to operate as a dual-frequency RFID reader. The device is well suited for applications involving logistics, supply chain and warehouse management, GAO RFID reports.
