Nordic ID Intros RFID Reader, IoT Platform
Nordic ID has launched a new handheld reader, the Android-based Nordic ID HH83, as well as its Radea Internet of Things (IoT) platform for platform-as-a-service (PaaS) applications. These products are designed to enable customers to track items and material flows in real time, Nordic ID reports.
For Nordic ID's customers in fashion and apparel, sustainability has become an impactful competitive factor. As the processes for manufacturing clothes consume large amounts of natural resources, the firm explains, minimizing surplus and curbing overproduction become increasingly important to manufacturers.
The HH83 handheld reader has a modular build, and the exchangeable front end enables RFID or barcode scanning. The option to turn the barcode reader into an RFID device, or the other way around, extends the device's lifetime. The unit is the creation of industrial design professor Juhani Salovaara.
"The starting point for the design is the Nordic design principles: usability, ergonomics and timelessness," Salovaara said in the prepared statement. "Everything stems from the needs of the end user. We want also this device to be part of our customers operations for many years to come." The device is sturdy and durable, the company reports, with IP65 classification.
The Radea platform (short for real-time accurate data on enterprise assets) is designed for the real-time handling and consolidation of collected data. Radea is intended to provide companies with data and analytics regarding the movements and counts of their material and asset flows. When businesses have better insights into their asset flows, the company explains, they can decrease surplus, transportation and excess production.
Radea utilizes other sensor technologies besides RFID and can be integrated with customers' existing ecosystems. "I'm very proud that we now extend our offering with these additions," Reima added in the prepared statement. "They support our customers' efforts to be more sustainable and efficient. Our aim is to further strengthen our position in the industry as a forerunner both technologically and as an enabler of sustainable values."
