Point Mobile Intros New NFC/UHF RFID Handheld Reader

Point Mobile, a manufacturer of mobile handheld RFID readers, offers a number of Android-based handhelds with NFC or HF modules, and is now launching a new UHF reader known as the RF800. A growing number of companies use RFID tags and dedicated reading devices, the company reports, since the technology helps them to reduce failure rates while boosting productivity.

The RF800 reader module can interrogate tags from distances of up to 7 meters, making it suitable for inventory management, retail, production, logistics and warehouse management. The unit displays collected data in real time, and users can process that data immediately while connected to LTE or Wi-Fi.

The device weighs less than 300 grams and has an ergonomic design, the company reports, while a status LED keeps users informed about charging status, data synching and more. Point Mobile has placed the balance point in the reader's pistol grip, enabling the weight to be distributed evenly. A software developer's kit includes a variety of program samples and libraries supporting the integration of the RFID module in customer applications.
