Free2move Scientific Announces Cable-Free ISO 18000-6c RFID Reader



Free2move's Gemia(TM) Bluetooth© EPC Class 1 Gen 2 RFID reader is designed for supply chain, asset identification and point-of-sale applications

Free2move Scientific launched today the Gemia(TM) with part number FS901-AB0A. The Gemia(TM) combines a power-efficient RFID reader with built-in directional antenna; a low power Bluetooth(TM) interface and a built-in battery for 10 hours effective operation into a light, small form-factor unit.

With the Gemia(TM) RFID reader, Free2move is emphasising robust cable-free operation, ease of use together with attractive pricing.

The ISO 18000-6c (a.k.a. EPC Class 1 Gen 2) has become the fastest deploying RFID standard for asset identification, supply chain and inventory management. The Gemia(TM) is positioned as the ideal reader for many applications which benefit from cable-free operation. The RFID reading range and antenna characteristics are designed for precise selection of tag for supply chain purposes.

Gemia(TM) can be used with any host supporting Bluetooth(TM) serial port profile. Its form-factor makes it ideal for desktop, point-of-sale and add-on to handhelds alike. Along with the Gemia(TM), Free2move offers accessories for fixing it to popular industrial handhelds such as Opticon's PHL8000 series and the Psion Teklogix Ikôn 7505. By having its own battery, Gemia(TM) does not drain power from the host handheld. Paired to a computer, it can also be used separately, e.g. as a separate handheld or clipped to a belt. A desktop stand is also available.

Free2move Scientific's Chief Executive Martin Harnevie says: "Gemia(TM) can be looked as a powerful combination of Free2move's strengths in Bluetooth(TM) technology and Free2move Scientific's strengths in RFID technology. Together it makes a compelling product emphasising robust cable-free operation, ease of use together with attractive pricing."
