iDTronic Releases New Android-based RFID Reader

iDTronic has announced that its C4 Red mobile reader is available in an Android-based version, known as the Nougat. The device supports mobile device management (MDM), Android for Work and all other enterprise mobile management (EMM) systems. The mobile computer, with an IP65 protection class, is suited for industrial applications, the company reports.

The C4 Red features a quad-core processor, a 4500 mAh battery (expandable to 8000 mAh), a Honeywell bar-code engine, and RFID reading capability for UHF, HF, NFC and LF. Companies can read large numbers of tags from long distances efficiently, the firm explains, particularly in the areas of asset management, retailing, warehousing and fleet management.

Data connections for different areas and applications make working in changing environments feasible, according to the company. With support for 4G LTE and the dual Wi-Fi frequency (2.4 and 5.8 GHz), users can accelerate working speeds, collecting data via both bar-code and RFID options.

The C4 Red is available in different versions and enables companies to read two RFID frequencies on a single device (such as HF and UHF), or to read only bar codes and not RFID technology. The development package includes Android Studio and Eclipse Sources demo apps for RFID and bar-code options. Typical applications include asset tracking, retail, e-ticketing, access control, logistics and warehousing.
