Balluff’s RFID handhelds are now available with two new software solutions that allow users to easily customize and display their RFID and bar code data the way they want to see it, without the need for programming.
The Template Software and the BISPortal Software Solutions both allow you to access your RFID data anywhere using your mobile Balluff/PSION handheld. Both software packages use the same Windows based PC configuration software which allows the user to configure the data descriptions and data format displayed on the handheld with a simple “template” format developed on the PC and uploaded to the handheld. These templates are universal and can be used with both handheld’s software solutions. The data can be displayed in different formats including: ASCII, Binary, BCD, Byte, Integer, Long integer, Floating point, and Hexadecimal. Both software programs allow the user to save and transfer data files using the handheld’s cradle USB connection, built-in Bluetooth radio, or an optional WLAN card.
Furthermore, the BISPortal software solution takes the use of RFID enabled handhelds to a new level of mobile usability by adding support for bar code reading, RFID tag data, and database searching. The BISPortal software supports reading both linear and 2D bar codes directly into the user created handheld data screen allowing the user to easily mix RFID and bar code data without having to switch between multiple software on the handheld, enabling the user to see all their data at one time. The BISPortal software also allows the user to easily search through large amounts of RFID tag data with a special query screen or compare any data read from RFID tags or bar codes to a user loaded database, then load from matching data into the open template data screen for a complete visual data record right there in the user’s hand.
According to Mark Sippel, Industrial Identification Marketing Manager at Balluff, “Whether using the Template or BISPortal Software Solution, users will experience a completely new and easy level of data accessibility and flexibility in a truly mobile device.”
