The Padl-R HF RFID reader provides a smart combination of Bluetooth and USB interfaces. It is readily integrated with a wide variety of wireless handheld PDAs or smart phones using Bluetooth which makes it a perfect retrofit option for businesses wanting to add value to their existing investments in handheld technology. Alternatively the USB interface allows for static mounting on a wall or counter for tagged items to be read in close proximity.

The reader features a highly configurable user interface with a variety of use modes such as push to read, remote triggering or 'always on' operation. Up to 1,000 tag values can be stored using the data logging mode and downloaded to a PC or laptop at a later time. Integration with other products such as Bluetooth GPS receivers is easy using Tracient’s Sens-R Blue™ technology.

The unit is ideal for the mobile workforce to track and monitor mobile assets and for assisting with simultaneous asset position and identification in the field. Lightweight portability makes it excellent for use in security or logistics operations. It operates with industry standard tags at 13.56 MHz so is also ideal for Near Field Communications (NFC) type applications (ISO14443A, Mifare, Ultralight). Other applications inlude indoor asset management, condition monitoring, security, vending and ticketing.
