UHF RFID Reader Accessory for Nomad
UHF RFID Reader - North America version
The UHF RFID Reader is designed for a variety of RFID scenarios, including asset management and inventory management. The Reader is tested and certified to IP67 and MIL-STD-810G standards, making it as durable and resistant to harsh environments as the Nomad computer.
The UHF RFID Reader has a range of approximately one (1) meter, although this specification is significantly dependent on the particular RFID tags being read, and the substrate the tags are attached to. Via the API, the Reader also includes the ability to write, or update, the data stored on RFID tags.
The North America version of the UHF RFID Reader is certified for use in the USA, Canada and most of South America. A Sample Tag Pack is available separately, and contains an assortment of nine RFID tags for use in rugged environments. The tags, from four manufacturers, have a range of performance characteristics and are compatible with various substrate material types and shapes.
Compatibility with the Nomad handheld
The UHF RFID Reader is compatible with all Nomad 900 and Nomad 800 models running Windows Mobile 6.1 and 6.0. The UHF RFID Reader is compatible with RFID tags designed to the EPCglobal Gen2 standard. The Reader is compatible with all Nomad feature combinations, having no adverse impact on GPS reception, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and so on. The impact on battery life is comparable to using the barcode laser scanner (on Nomad computers so equipped), and will vary by individual usage patterns.
