Speed up off-line data collection with RFID handhelds
23 August 2010
Being able to read and write data to RFID tags using handheld programming units can easily and reliably manage available data and, in some cases, considerably improve the visibility and effectiveness of the data gathering process. This is especially true for manual rework stations or at manual delivery and inventory collection points, such as shipping/receiving or stocking areas. Access to process data at these points can also lead to a significant reduction in manufacturing and processing errors.
Balluff can now supply a rugged, industrial-grade handheld for portable reading and writing of data carriers in the Balluff BIS RFID identification system. This modular, expandable device, with IP 65 protection and integrated read/write head, offers extended read/write distances and is 100% compatible with the BIS L/M and C systems. Practical and well-engineered accessories such as an optional pistol grip enable ergonomic and non fatiguing operation.
Thanks to pre-installed software, the device is ready to use out of the box and is simple to operate. A colour display provides accurate viewing even under difficult lighting conditions, and users are able to select various display modes; even password management of MIFARE data carriers is possible. An optional software development package allows users to create their own screens and applications. Balluff can provide ready-to-use custom versions, and an optional W-LAN module can be used for wireless transmission of data to controllers, printers or PCs with a WLAN interface. Bluetooth is also possible for close-range applications.
