DENSO Releases RFID Scanner for Logistics, Retail

DENSO, the inventor of the QR code, has launched its UR20 product range, equipped with RFID technology. Applications include automatic payments, identification, recognition, registration and automatic storage, as well as retail.

The UR21 scanner is suitable for use in retail and can be installed at the point of sale. The scanner can be attached under a counter via an optional VESA-standard mounting frame, the company reports, as it requires little space due to its flat design. This allows a user to capture multiple RFID tags simultaneously. Customers' clothing articles can be placed one on top of another on a counter, and the U21 can read all of their tags in a single step.

This, the company explains, can eliminate long queues at the point of sale. The UR21's read range is up to 80 centimeters, ensuring that only products in its immediate range are interrogated and not products being purchased by the next customer in the queue. Reading distance can be adjusted granularly, in order to adapt the scanner to various counters individually. With an additional antenna, a larger scanning area can be covered.

The second model in the UR20 series, the UR22, is suitable for use in storage-management applications in retail environments. With a scanning distance of up to 2.6 meters, the scanner can be mounted above the door of a warehouse to capture incoming and outgoing goods. Therefore, the tags no longer have to be individually identified and read by employees, but are directly captured by the UR22. The circular-polarized antenna allows for 360-degree scanning of RFID tags.

The small reader can be installed anywhere thanks to its compact design and thin antenna, the company reports. VESA-compliant screw holes also allow for installation at a variety of locations. As a result, the UR22 can be individually adapted to specific conditions.
