HOLTSVILLE, NY—Symbol Technologies has launched a new RFID reader designed for the manufacturing, warehouse, and back-end retail industries, and features wireless and Bluetooth connectivity with no external antennas or cabling. Beta customers have mounted the reader on forklifts, conveyor belts, shrink-wrap machines, trash compacters, and anywhere else a compact device can be attached. The reader boasts a power efficiency feature; whether or not in proximity to RFID tags, it automatically shuts off the reading function to conserve battery life. See symbol.com.
