Datalogic Intros Long-Range UHF RFID Portal Reader

Datalogic, a provider of automatic data-capture and industrial-automation solutions, has announced its DLR-PR001 RFID portal reader, designed to facilitate RFID implementations for retail and warehouse applications. According to Datalogic, the DLR-PR001 is the result of in-field research and customer consultation.

With an embedded computer running the LINUX operating system, this portal is designed to ease the development of custom software and solutions. Its onboard computing power and connectivity eliminate the need for an external PC and associated cabling. The device can be connected directly to antennas or multiplexers, enabling users to add RFID detection to installations of any size and configuration, with up to 16 antennas.

"Specific customer requests combined with assessments of various in-field RFID installations were the basis for the design and development of the DLR-PR001 reader," said Nick Tabet, Datalogic's product marketing leader for handheld and fixed scanning, in a prepared statement. "This effort ensured the unit will deliver increased productivity in real-time inventory management. The DLR-PR001 portal reader is a great addition to the Datalogic RFID family of products - the DLR-BT001 Bluetooth pocket reader, the DLR-TL001 temperature logger and the DLR-DK001 desk/wall reader."

The DLR-PR001 RFID portal reader, according to the company, is suitable for warehouse, automatic gate and in-store inventory applications. The onboard intelligence allows data to be collected from multiple sources, including smart-card readers and bar-code scanners. The device comes with an optional GPRS modem.
