The Padl-R UF RFID Reader directly addresses the key issues facing mobile workers. It is lightweight, ergonomic and has a good battery life to last a full 12 hour shift operation. With just one button it is simple to use, making it suitable for workers of all skill levels. The unit is ideal for tracking and monitoring mobile assets, inventory management and mobile field service applications such as security, condition monitoring and service level adherence.

The Padl-R UF is readily paired via Bluetooth with a wide variety of wireless handheld PDAs including Symbol, Psion Teklogix, Intermec, Datalogic and many more. Alternatively it can be connected via Bluetooth or USB to a laptop or desktop computer.

The Bluetooth connectivity makes it ideal as a retrofit option for companies that already use a handheld device, effectively maximizing the life of their existing equipment. When matched with new low to middle tier PDAs or smart phones (for example iPAQ, i-mate) the reader provides a low cost mobile RFID solution for under US$3,000. This makes it a cost effective option for businesses wishing to test their RFID business case or start their migration from Barcodes to RFID.
