CipherLab Unveils Mobile Computer Able to Read RFID, Bar Codes

CipherLab USA, a company that designs, manufactures and markets automatic identification and data-capture (AIDC) products and systems, showcased its latest rugged mobile computers and bar-code scanners this week at NACS SHOW 2017, held in Chicago, Ill. At its booth, CipherLab introduced its new rugged RS31/RS50 Series Touch Mobile Computer and its 9700 Series Industrial Mobile Computer, designed for warehouse, logistics and supply chain operations.

The 9700 meets the IP65 standards, the company reports, and offers multiple reader options, including f laser, 2D imager, extended range laser and near/far 2D imager. Three keypad options make the system user-friendly, according to the company. The mobile computer operates on both Windows and Android platforms, facilitating application development. Accessories include a pistol grip and software support.

The RS31 is intended for use in field sales, field service, retail and health care. Running on the Android 7.0 operating system, the device enables users to capture data in 1D or 2D bar codes and RFID, as well as deploy Near Field Communication (NFC) applications. Weighing 260 grams (9.2 ounces), the RS31 is designed to be easy for users to carry in the field, while providing reliable wireless connections allowing accessibility to enterprise systems. It has an IP67 rating and provides 1.2-meter (3.9-foot) drop resistance.

"The RS31 series is a refined and evolved mobile computer that gives users the next generation processing power today," said Luis Wu, CipherLab USA's VP and general manager, in a prepared statement. "All of its highly efficient advantages are designed with a familiar user experience to ensure maximum productivity."

Running on Android 6.0 with GMS certification, the RS50 allows worker to adopt Google applications for their tasks, while its 4.7-inch display comes with bare- and gloved-finger and stylus inputs. The device streamlines data capture and supports the collection of 1D or 2D bar codes, as well as RFID, documents, photos or videos, and NFC applications.
