The qID (Model R1240IE, R1240IU) is a wearable RAIN RFID reader of the easy2read© product line with integrated antenna for medium to long range applications.
The reader hosts an internal rechargeable battery and can operate both in wired mode, using a USB cable, or in wireless mode through the Bluetooth® interface.
Thanks to the Bluetooth® communication interface, the qID is a perfect add-on for any Bluetooth® enabled host such as a PC, a smartphone, a PDA or a tablet for UHF RFID readings. The reader is compatible with Windows 8/10, Windows CE/Mobile, Android and iOS operating systems.
The reader can also operate in “Batch Mode”, allowing to store up to 500.000 EPC codes into the internal memory when the communication links (USB or Bluetooth®) are not available.
The qID can work autonomously thanks to its internal scripting engine: the user can upload a script to be executed when the trigger button is pressed. The scripting language is very powerful and, in addition to the standard programming language constructs, it permits to access to all the Gen2 commands and to drive the optional barcode scanner, the LEDs and the internal memory.
An optional 1D/2D barcode imager enables the qID to read most barcode standards. This enables the qID to be the perfect identification device in mixed barcode/RFID labels environment.
When paired to a smartphone or a tablet, the qID is a cost effective alternative to more expensive handheld devices.
Designed for mobile operators, the qID is ideal for inventory management, field sales mobility, service and maintenance applications.
