The new CS108 UHF RFID reader is designed to read and write to RAIN RFID transponders (EPC Class 1 Gen 2 /ISO18000-6C) and communicate via Bluetooth wireless technology with a variety of host devices running Apple iOS and Android operating systems. The new handheld is suitable for a range of industries and applications, the company reports, including supply chain management, stock inventory control, asset and data management, and logistics.
