New Handheld Programming RFID Unit Hits Market

Turck's BL ident RFID.

Read and write operations are easily programmed to the data carriers at any location with Turck's new handheld unit. It is part of Turck's new BL ident RFID system. Turck is a Plymouth, Minn.-based manufacturer of sensors, connectors and networks.

The data is displayed on an illuminated touch screen (in decimal, binary, hexadecimal and ASCII code) where it may be edited and written to the appropriate data carrier as required.

It operates with Microsoft Windows CE, making data transfer as simple as exporting a Microsoft Excel file. A WLAN connection allows the BL ident handheld to transfer data directly to a SPC or PC, regardless of the location. This means that the data is always available - even when the automated system is standing still.

The handheld unit also features automatic read operations, comparison of data records, definition of password protected areas and optional WLAN, Bluetooth and GPRS features.
