IP30 RFID Reader

Honeywell IP30 Handheld RFID Reader

Optimizing Enterprise MObility

Seamless Application Portability

The Intermec IP30 add-on passive UHF RFID handle is a cost-effective, compact, EPCglobal-certified solution for adding mobile RFID read/write capability to Intermec’s latest generation of mobile computers including the CN70/70e, CK70, CK71, CK3B, and CK3X. The modularity of the IP30 when combined with the RFID-readiness of the Intermec mobile computers, transforms into a RFID handheld in a snap. The IP30 supports both in-premise and in field applications, such as warehouse operations,
enterprise asset management, retail and enterprise inventory management, field service, and exception handling. When combined with one of Intermec’s powerful mobile computer products, the IP30 gives the user unmatched data collection and communication capabilities. And combining RFID with multiple network communication options in a single handheld unit enables pinpoint location accuracy for real-time asset, source and service tracking.

When added to one of Intermec’s 70 Series handheld computers, the IP30 gives users unprecedented versatility both inside and outside of the four walls through combined advanced data collection methods, GPS location association, and communication via multiple network radios, including the latest cellular technologies. In fact, the IP30 is the only long-range handheld RFID reader on the market that combines five wireless technologies in one integrated system: RFID, Wireless WAN, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. RFID reads can now be associated with time stamps and location coding to enhance supply chain visibility for applications like track and trace, point of origin, and field asset and inventory management.
