The rugged 7530 hand-held computer now delivers RFID compatibility for the cold storage market
London, UK 2nd May 2006 – Psion Teklogix (LSE: PON), a global provider of solutions for mobile computing, wireless data collection, imaging and RFID, today unveiled its 7530 UHF RFID compatible hand-held computer. This is the first product of its kind to be RFID enabled and durable enough for the frozen storage space.
The Windows CE .NET-based device combines the rugged features of Psion Teklogix 7530 with the Psion Teklogix RD7950 UHF RFID Reader, an EPC – GEN2 compliant 900MHz RFID reader. The result is a powerful RFID enabled hand-held computer capable of displaying client/server, Web and enterprise resources, while operating in the most intense and cold environments.
The extreme toughness, flexibility, integration capabilities and ergonomics make the 7530 RFID compatible hand-held computer an ideal mobile computing device for freezers, ports and container yards, and wide-area mobile computing applications. The 7530 RFID compatible hand-held computer boasts ratings of IP 67 and operates in condensing environments between 5-96% Relative Humidity. While most devices fail when placed in freezing and condensing environments, the 7530 RFID compatible hand-held computer can operate at temperatures as low as -30° C (-22° F) and withstand multiple drops to concrete from 6.5' (2m).
“We are pleased to provide our customers with RFID capabilities in one of our flagship products – the 7530,” said Ron Caines, vice president of marketing, Psion Teklogix Inc. “The 7530 RFID compatible hand-held computer offers the best of both worlds to our cold chain customers with RFID needs.”
The 7530 RFID compatible hand-held computer, like all Psion Teklogix CE .NET devices, provides customers with Intel XScale processors, 802.11 technologies, WAN capabilities, Bluetooth, RFID and SNMP. The 7530 can be used in batch and WLAN implementations.
The 7530 RFID compatible hand-held computer will be available in May 2006 through Psion Teklogix' sales offices, distributors and value-added resellers.
