GAO Offers Its 433MHz Active Handheld RFID Reader

Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) January 12, 2009 -- GAO RFID Inc. (www.GAORFID,com) recommends its active handheld RFID reader (GAO 214031). This light weight and palm-sized handheld reader is an ideal solution for localization and tracking merchandise, inventory, or other assets.

GAO’s 433MHz active handheld reader is a multi-functional handheld device that can manually scan and program individual tags enabling users to selectively identify a particular tag and change its information. A barcode scanner is an option for users to transit old barcode systems to newer RFID systems. Users can scan a barcode label and write the information to the RFID tag. RS232 and USB Host / Client ports can be used for data communication with a host computer. The RFID reader operates using a dual-frequency method allowing fast and reliable communication. All communication packets use parity bits and cyclic redundancy checks to ensure data integrity.

GAO’s 433MHz Active Handheld Reader provides the following features and benefits:

Light weight handheld reader/writer Selective tag scanning and programming Ability to optionally read barcode labels and writing information to RFID tags Dual frequency for faster and more reliable communication Uses parity bits and cyclic redundancy checks for data integrity
