Hanmi IT Launches RF-Prisma Handheld Reader

Hanmi IT has launched RF Prisma, a new RFID reader suitable for individually identifying stacked items, with a read range of up to 7 meters (23 feet). The reader supports the ISO-18000-6C and EPC Gen 2 RFID specifications.

Designed to be ergonomic, the new reader is compact, weighing 220 grams (7.8 ounces) and measuring 171 millimeters by 117 millimeters by 40 millimeters (6.7 inches by 4.6 inches by 1.6 inches). It uses Impinj's Indy R2000 ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) EPC Gen 2 reader chipset, according to Hanmi IT, and offers a read rate of up to 800 tags per second.

The read range is enhanced by the combination of the reader's linearly beam-forming antenna and 30dBm RF output, and supports the Bluetooth 4.1 protocol (the latest Bluetooth technology for communication). The reader contains 8 megabits of internal memory, comes in a wide selection of colors, and has such additional features as auto sleep mode and up to 1 meter (3.3 feet) of waterproofing to protect circuits. A bar-code add-on module is available.

The RF-Prisma reader is available now.
