iDTRONIC Offers Android 9-based Handheld RFID Readers

iDTRONIC has announced that its Android 7 RFID handheld series has evolved into its Android 9 RFID handheld series. The Android 9 Pie has been adapted to current Internet of Things (IoT) requirements, the company reports. The new operating system focuses on performance, stability and energy efficiency, in order to provide a longer battery life. This is achieved using artificial intelligence. Android 9 is intended to improve the security of smartphones, according to iDTRONIC. The background activities of apps will be more limited with the new version. As a rule, applications will now only have access to the camera and microphone if they are running in the foreground.

The company's C9 RFID Handhelds are available in three different versions. iDTRONIC offers its C9 Handheld, a related GUN version and the C9 Tablet. The smart devices are designed for the latest Industry 4.0 and IoT applications. The C9 Black is a compact RFID handheld computer that resembles a smartphone. The identification of RFID tags and transponders can be accomplished via and integrated RFID HF and NFC reader operating at 13.56 MHz. It supports the ISO 14443 A/B, ISO 15693, NFC-IP1 and NFC-IP2 standards.

The C9 Black is suitable for near-field applications in a 5- to 8-centimeter reading range. Optionally, the RFID handheld is available with a 1D or 2D barcode scanner, which can be used for warehousing processes. Its 4.900 mAh Li-Ion Battery is designed to withstand a working day without problems, the company reports, due to Android 9's intelligent battery-consumption function.

The C9 Black GUN is an extension to the firm's C9 Black RFID handheld computer. The RFID handheld is equipped with an ergonomic grip. The identification of RFID tags and transponders can be accomplished via an integrated RFID UHF, HF NFC or LF reader. It supports the ISO 18000-6C, ISO 14443 A/B, ISO 15693, ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 standards. The C9 Black GUN is intended for long-range applications, covering up to a 10-meter reading range.
