Groenlo, The Netherlands – May 2, 2016
Nedap today announced mass availability of its iD Hand 2 RFID handheld reader. The iD Hand 2 is available worldwide complying with the different regional ETSI and FCC regulations for UHF RFID (RAIN RFID) products. The reader offers a high reading performance, wireless charging, and extensive software development kits (SDKs).
The iD Hand 2 is specifically designed for RFID applications in retail stores like cycle counts, goods receiving, and tag commissioning. The handheld reader sets itself apart from traditional RFID handheld readers through a number of unique characteristics that make the use of RFID more accessible and scalable: one-button operation, lightweight design, Bluetooth-enabled, and equipped with a barcode scanner.
The iD Hand 2 works together with iOS and Android mobile devices, supporting the trend of a large increase in the number of mobile devices already used in the store for other tasks. Whenever staff members want to perform an RFID-related task, they can simply take the iD Hand, pair it with their mobile device and start the task.
The iD Hand 2 is available with a charging cradle for wireless charging of the iD Hand’s battery using induction transfer, simply by placing it on a wireless pad with no need for additional cables or adaptors.
