Janam improves supply chain efficiency and reliability with new handheld RFID reader

Janam Technologies LLC, provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, announced the launch of its XM2-RFID UHF mobile computer. With best-in-class RFID read range and accuracy, the XM2-RFID UHF is ergonomically designed to deliver business-critical enterprise features to organizations in multiple industries, including retail, transportation and logistics, manufacturing and defense.

The new XM2-RFID UHF fits in the palm of the hand and is optimized to meet the real-world challenges of businesses and government organizations around the world. Weighing only 13 ounces, this high-performance handheld mobile computer reads ISO18000-63, EPC Global Class 1 Gen 2 tags and is field-proven to complete more than 40,000 tag reads on one battery charge. The XM2-RFID UHF includes Zebra’s SE4500 2D imager for robust decoding of the hardest-to-read barcodes—ultimately reducing the complexity and number of devices organizations need to deploy. It also comes equipped with a brilliant 3.2-inch color display and support for Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating system.
