Balluff Intros New Handheld UHF RFID Reader

Balluff has announced that its U-890 handheld UHF RFID reader is designed to simplify the task of mobile data collection. The device allows RFID reading in both close- and long-range applications, the company reports, in addition to 2D barcode scanning. The reader is also equipped with a processor that allows for the reading of multiple tags in the field.

According to Balluff, the handheld reader offers 1 watt of output power and comes with Microsoft's Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating system. Its user interface is intended to minimize deployment time and eliminate the need for programming, the company notes, while a software development kit (SDK) is available for custom applications.

Features of the U-890 handheld UHF RFID reader include data acquisition and processing functionality. It comes with an ARM processor and offers a read range of more than 4 meters, as well as multi-tagging capability at more than 200 tags per second and an adaptive UHF antenna for tag acquisition. In addition, RFID software comes already installed on the unit.
