One of the challenges companies have faced when trying to integrate RFID into their businesses is that the early solutions added another layer of cost and complexity
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 24, 2008
Barcoding Inc., a leading provider of automated data capture solutions that helps companies integrate Radio Frequency Identification technology into their operations, announced the release of the CaptureTech RFID Interpreter today, which is the newest addition to its suite of RFID solutions. The CaptureTech RFID Interpreter provides companies with an easy and practical way to get RFID tag data into any Windows™-based PC application. Utilizing simple, plug-and-play technology, companies can implement this device and begin reading RFID tags in less than one minute while utilizing existing legacy applications.
"The RFID Interpreter's biggest strength is its simplicity," says Bill Poulsen, Senior RFID Engineer at Barcoding Inc. "There is essentially zero integration. It takes less than a minute to be up and running and have the ability to read and identify RFID tags." Integrating a high-performance RFID reader, antenna and tag data processing capability into one compact, portable desktop device, the RFID Interpreter does not require any special software or software modification.
The RFID Interpreter plugs into a USB port on a Windows-based PC. The Interpreter then identifies itself as a Human Interface Device (HID) and inputs RFID tag data into any existing applications (including Microsoft Office Applications such as Word™, Access™ or an Excel™ spreadsheet) as if it were being typed on a keyboard. Data from the RFID tag is entered by opening that application and placing the cursor where the user wants the data to be entered. The RFID tag is simply scanned over the top surface of the device, where it is captured and placed into the software application.
The RFID Interpreter device also has built-in Ethernet capabilities to provide flexible communications options. An optional external antenna enables users to access a host of different antenna configurations."One of the challenges companies have faced when trying to integrate RFID into their businesses is that the early solutions added another layer of cost and complexity," noted Jay Steinmetz, the CEO of Barcoding Inc. "That is no longer the case. The RFID Interpreter is another example of our efforts to simplify the implementation process and help companies lower the technical barriers of RFID adoption. The ability to connect this device easily and seamlessly with existing legacy applications will give companies true plug-and-play RFID capabilities."
