Turck Announces UHF RFID Smartphone Reader
Turck has expanded its RFID offerings with a new ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) handheld device. The PD-IDENT handheld provides customers with a lightweight smartphone RFID reader system, the company reports. The handheld houses a UHF antenna and connects to a user's smartphone via the audio port. Additionally, Turck is providing customers with a basic, multipurpose RFID app for iOS and Android mobile devices (Microsoft Windows support is expected to be added in the future). The handheld can be used in conjunction with the company's BL ident RFID system.
This solution was created through a partnership between Turck and U Grok It. "Using the handheld reader, our customers will be able to track, control and manage their RFID applications better than ever," said Randy Durick, Turck's VP of fieldbus technology, in a prepared statement. "This partnership allows Turck to provide an adaptable, economical UHF handheld solution for our customers, and we look forward to our long-term partnership with U Grok It."
The PD-IDENT has an operating frequency of 865 to 928 MHz and complies with the EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C standards. A user can simply select a region upon initiating the device in order to conform to local radio communication requirements.
