CAEN RFID a global provider of UHF RFID products today announces the release of the new qID, a novel UHF/Barcode Bluetooth reader of its Easy2Read© family.
The qID (Model R1240I) is a mobile UHF RFID reader compliant with ISO 18000-6C/EPC C1G2 standards. An optional 1D/2D barcode imager enables the qID to read most Barcode standards. Thanks to the Bluetooth communication interface, the qID is a perfect add-on for any Bluetooth enabled host such as a PC, a smartphone, a PDA or a tablet for UHF RFID readings. The reader is compatible with Windows XP/7, Windows CE/Mobile, Android and iOS operating systems.”UHF RFID is often perceived as a complex technology, that only RFID experts and gurus are able to handle. With our new Bluetooth reader we wish to dispel this myth and provide a simple RFID/Barcode tool to be used in everyday processes” said Giovanni Grieco, Business Development Manager of CAEN RFID. “Its ease of use and ergonomics, together with being a cost effective alternative to integrated handheld devices, will allow qID to become the ideal companion for any Bluetooth enabled device”. The qID can operate both in wired mode, using a USB cable, or in wireless mode through the Bluetooth interface. The reader can also operate in “Batch Mode”, allowing to store up to 500.000 EPC codes into the internal memory when the communication links (USB or Bluetooth) are not available. The qID is available for purchase today through CAEN RFID’s sales network.
