Posted October 2, 2012

CipherLab 1861 RFID ReaderCipherLab has announced their new 1861 handheld RFID reader. The 1861 handheld RFID reader is designed to provide flexibility in data collection considering RFID technology has become a complementary solution to barcode labeling. Unique from typical RFID readers, the CipherLab 1861 handheld RFID reader provides user extended RFID reading and writing capabilities via most Bluetooth mobile devices. In addition, it can further integrate barcode capture and RFID data collection into one robust device by simply snapping your CipherLab 9600 series, CP50 series, or other mobile computers onto its custom mount attached to the CipherLab 1861 handheld RFID reader. In this way, users could enjoy hassle-free one-hand operation via single unit with high work efficiency. Additionally, it gives user the capability to read UHF (Ultra High Frequency) RFID tags in a distance up to 1 m (3 ft.), and write data up to 0.5 m (1.6 ft.) away – this makes it much easier while scanning tags on products as pallets are moved through a dock door or scanning cases on a high shelf in a warehouse.
