Baracoda Introduces TagRunners
Contact RFID Reader suited for mobile and medical environments
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA AT RFID WORLD BOOTH 424 (SEPTEMBER 9, 2008) - Baracoda, the world's first manufacturer of Bluetooth® wireless barcode readers and RFID solutions, has introduced TagRunners to its portfolio of Bluetooth enterprise solutions.
TagRunners are a new line of RFID HF (High Frequency) readers/encoders dedicated to mobile environments for asset tracking and traceability. They are particularly useful in medical environments. For example, TagRunners can be used in hospitals to ensure patient file tracking or blood vial tracking to minimize risk of error.
TagRunners are Baracoda's entry into new mobile markets where barcodes don't exist, such as fragile vegetables and trees and for tanks, barrels and other items where security is essential.
True to the Baracoda portfolio of mobile solutions, TagRunners are lightweight and easy to carry and handle out in the field. They are particularly adapted to rugged environments and remain fully operational even after several drops onto concrete. With the ability to read up to 15,000 tags during a continuous 48-hour use, the operator can check real-time battery status from a mobile device.
Bluetooth is the only standard that eliminates interference issues between technologies that may coexist in the workplace. Bluetooth delivers secure data transmission, reliability and robustness in difficult environments, all with the elimination of wires and connectors. Bluetooth has become an essential component of mobility, and Baracoda is dedicated exclusively to Bluetooth software and hardware designs.
