The Padl-R UF RFID Reader directly addresses the key issues facing mobile workers. It is lightweight, ergonomic and has a good battery life to last a full 12 hour shift operation. With just one button it is simple to use, making it suitable for workers of all skill levels. The unit is ideal for tracking and monitoring mobile assets, inventory management and mobile field service applications such as security, condition monitoring and service level adherence.

The Padl-R UF is readily paired via Bluetooth with a wide variety of wireless handheld PDAs including Symbol, Psion Teklogix, Intermec, Datalogic and many more. Alternatively it can be connected via Bluetooth or USB to a laptop or desktop computer.
