iD Hand 2 RFID handheld reader

Nedap globally releases new RFID handheld

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.

It was very easy to do the integration with the SDK supplied

“We have already integrated the iD Hand into our ControlSpan application” states Kris Doane, Director of Product Management at CONTROLTEK USA. ”It was very easy to do the integration with the SDK supplied and best of all our customers are really impressed with the user-friendliness and performance of this Bluetooth reader.”

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.
