Handheld RFID reader is Ex certified
January 2017, Industrial Wireless, IS & Ex


The latest addition to Extronics’ passive RFID range, the iRFID500 handheld Bluetooth passive RFID reader, is designed to integrate with existing business processes and IIoT networks to improve efficiency and productivity and reduce downtime.

More and more businesses are moving away from bulky PDAs, replacing them with smart devices and powerful Bluetooth accessories. The iRFID500 enables this trend, and can be used with either a Windows, Android, or Apple smart device via Bluetooth, or as a standalone unit. Its lightweight and ergonomic design makes it easy to carry, and a battery life of over 12 hours means it is practical for long shifts. Everything about the iRFID500 is designed to make work easier, even down to the stylus nib, which makes it simple to input information on a smartphone or tablet to record details like maintenance tasks or pull up asset inspection checklists.

The iRFID500 holds radio approvals for both ETSI and FCC frequencies. It is also available either as ruggedised for industrial use, or as fully certified for hazardous areas, in accordance with ATEX, IECEx and North American regulations for explosive atmospheres.

The unit reads passive UHF RFID tags, such as those in Extronics’ intrinsically safe iTAG500 range. Highly durable and suitable for use in hazardous areas, the iTAG500 series was designed with Omni-ID and uses its unique plasmonic structure for superior performance in metallic environments, such as those found in many process industries.
