Add plug-in RFID capabilities to Pocket PC applications

Now add high frequency RFID capabilities to your mobile data collection application with Sockets CompactFlash RFID Reader Card. This product reads and writes to all ISO 15693 and many proprietary 13.56Mhz RFID tags being used or deployed for asset tracking, access control, process control, healthcare and pharmaceutical applications.

Like all Sockets data collection products, the RFID Reader card is supported by SocketScan keyboard wedge software which sends the RFID tag ID, data from selected memory blocks or both to any Windows application as virtual keystrokes – No custom programming needed! A small RFID Demo application allows writing to the accessible tag memory blocks for demonstration purposes. The SocketScan SDK is available for developers who wish to embed control of the RFID Reader read/write functionality into their applications.

Mobility Friendly Means Low Power

As with all of our products, Socket designed the Mobility Friendly CF RFID Reader to use minimal power. Drawing only 11mA (36mW) in idle mode, the CF RFID Reader will operate for hours without having to recharge the batteries in your Pocket PC.

CF RFID Reader Card Features:

– Integrated Type II CF card plugs into the Type II CompactFlash slot of Windows Powered Pocket PCs

Reads and writes to ICode 1, Tag-It HF and PicoTag proprietary HF tags

– Support for reading in Inventory and/or Loop Mode

– LED indicates read activity

– Supported by the same SocketScan and SDK that supports all Socket data collection products

– Socket's SocketScan software sends tag ID and/or data from selected memory blocks to any Windows application as virtual keystrokes

– SocketScan enables the creation of prefixes and suffixes, such as Tab or Carriage Return, to further eliminate key strokes in the data collection process

– SocketScan enables the assignment of a beep tone to signify a successful read

– This Battery Friendly solution draws only a few milliamps of current in standby mode, extending the battery life of your Pocket PC
