Overview — Rugged Handheld RFID Reader/Mobile Computer — The Jett (243004)

This rugged, hand–held mobile computer features a high frequency (13.56MHz) RFID reader and is an ideal solution for any number of vertical markets — asset tracking and inventory management, event attendance or personnel access control, fleet maintenance, in the warehouse or on the hospital floor.

More than just an ordinary RFID tag reader, this rugged hand–held can read and write tag IDs and data blocks, as well as protect the data on compatible transponders for privacy and security purposes using advanced encryption and authentication techniques.

The mobile computer operates under the powerful Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET 4.2 OS running on an Intel® XScale® processor. The HF RFID read/write module supports most ISO 14443A, ISO 14443B, and ISO 15693 tags.

This unit further boasts two unique and innovative features of great benefit to the user. Its exceptional antenna allows for the reading of tags, in practically any orientation overcoming problems associated with tag orientation such can be found in supply chain applications. As well, the unit contains a brilliant hardware/software scheme, “Software Defined Radio” (SDR) architecture, which future–proofs the RFID reader allowing support for future tags and protocols via a software upgrade while maintain existing hardware. This represents a great potential cost savings.

This mobile reader is also fully customizable including options for case color, protective bumpers, keypad, logo tag, serial tag, and cables. Furthermore, the reader's fully accessible Compact Flash (CF) slot provides further customization supporting a wide variety of CF–enabled peripheral devices.
