Motorola Solutions recently released the DS9808-R, a brand new hybrid imager that represents two industry firsts. The DS9808-R is the first imager to combine a 1D/2D bar code scanner and RFID reader and is also the first combination handheld/hands free UHF RFID reader. This ground-breaking device enables:
- RFID usage for POS checkout, price checking, new inventory commission, separated inventory identification (e.g., fitting rooms) and returns processing
- Instant translation of the RFID EPC tag data to UPC bar code data, allowing retailers to implement RFID information into existing bar code-based inventory applications
- The capture of 1D and 2D bar codes with record speeds as well as images and signatures, U.S. driver licenses and other AAMVA-compliant ID cards
Employees can instantly switch scanning modes and form factors and the revolutionary imaging engine captures an array of data with record speeds. The unsurpassed flexibility of the DS9808-R enablesretailers to adapt to virtually any type of POS and emerging inventory management application with a single, cost-effective device.
