Fast Automated Data Collection with Handheld RFID Readers
Handheld RFID readers retrieve data faster, more efficiently, and at a larger scale than barcode technology, saving you time and money. Handheld readers allow mobile workers to perform quick inventory and even hone in on missing or hard-to-find items.
How Handheld Readers Work
Handheld RFID readers have an antenna embedded inside of them allowing them to be mobile. If the reader is pointed at many items that have an RFID tag, the reader will be able to read all of those tags at once. Conversely, mobile RFID readers can help you hone in on a single RFID tag for precise locating. This has many benefits including but not limited to:
- Quick and accurate data collection.
- Ability to locate misplaced items.
- Less time spent on audits & cycle counts.
- Greater visibility over stock levels.
RFID Readers for Every Application
Whether you need readers for industrial, retail, or even healthcare, there is a handheld reader for you. Gun-style, rugged handheld readers are good for read-intensive tasks in the warehouse and other industrial environments.
Read Both Barcodes and RFID Tagged Items!
At its core, a handheld RFID gun is a barcode mobile computer with RFID tag reading functionality. So, if you need a solution that uses both types of technology, your employees only need to use one device.
RFID Sleds Integrate with Your Existing Devices
An RFID reader is an all-in-one device that specializes in reading RFID tags. An RFID sled, on the other hand, is an RFID reading attachment that integrates with your existing mobile computers. While RFID sleds are a nice option, they are commonly used in retail and less read-intensive applications.
Benefits of Handheld Readers & Sleds
Handheld RFID readers and sleds allow companies to gain instant visibility into their operations to help them become as efficient and productive as possible. Benefits of handheld readers and sleds include:
- Utilize one device to read both barcodes and RFID tags!
- Fast data capture to save time and money.
- High-performance data capture.
- Rugged and ready to get to work minimizing downtime.
- Easy-to-use Android OS.
Getting Started with RFID
Getting started with RFID requires a little bit more than buying a reader and slapping a tag on what you want to track. Our solutions are strategically designed for your warehouse’s requirements. As a result, we take the time to evaluate which combination of RFID tags, readers, antennas, printers, and software will work best for your specific application.
With over 20 years of experience working with our customers, we have seen many common challenges and mishaps when implementing RFID systems. When you work with RMS Omega, you work with a dedicated Account Manager who will be your point of contact from the start. We will support you from the initial project design and through the implementation, deployment, and ongoing maintenance, optimization, and analysis of your RFID system for years to come.
