How the recent introduction of the innovative UNI900 UHF RFID reader/writer for ecom’s i.roc Ci70-Ex handheld computer (PDA) enables new levels of safety and productivity in potentially hazardous locations.
The unique modular concept of the i.roc® Ci70 -Ex combines state-of-the-art technology with a flexible, modular head system for all kinds of data acquisition systems

As organisations look for new ways to improve operational efficiency and workforce productivity without compromising on safety, the use of RFID technology within the workplace is becoming more prevalent to quickly and accurately identify equipment, tools, parts/spares, locations, and even people.

Also, UHF RFID technology advancements over the past few years to improve performance in/on metal, improve ruggedness, reduce the tag size, and increase on-board memory size has brought this technology firmly in the frame for hazardous area projects. In fact, many see this technology as the future automated identification standard within hazardous areas since it offers more flexibility for the lifetime tracking of equipment both within a site and across supply chains.
