Datalogic Introduces The DLR-PR001, A Premier UHF Long Range RFID Portal Reader

Datalogic, a global leader in automatic data capture and industrial automation markets, announces the DLR-PR001 RFID portal reader. The DLR-PR001 is an intelligent device that facilitates RFID implementations for Retail and Warehouse applications. Datalogic works closely with customers and industry technology leaders to ensure products are developed that meet and exceed their needs; the DLR-PR001 is the product of extensive in-field research and customer consultation resulting in a premier device that delivers real-time productivity benefits.

With an embedded computer running the LINUX operating system, this portal eases the development of custom software and solutions. The on-board computing power and connectivity eliminate the need for an external PC and associated cabling. The device can be connected directly to antennas or multiplexers making it easy to deliver RFID detection to installations of any size and configuration with up to sixteen antennas.

Nick Tabet, Datalogic Product Marketing Leader for Handheld and Fixed Scanning, states, “Specific customer requests combined with assessments of various in-field RFID installations were the basis for the design and development of the DLR-PR001 reader. This effort ensured the unit will deliver increased productivity in real-time inventory management. The DLR-PR001 portal reader is a great addition to the Datalogic RFID family of products - the DLR-BT001 Bluetooth pocket reader, the DLR-TL001 temperature logger and the DLR-DK001 desk/wall reader."

The DLR-PR001 RFID portal reader is ideally suited for applications in warehouse, automatic gate and in-store inventory. The onboard intelligence allows data to be collected from multiple sources including smart card readers and bar code scanners. The optional GPRS modem makes the DLR-PR001 the ideal solution for data acquisition and control in remote locations. Key features of this device include:

  • EPC Class 1 Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C compliant
  • Multi-regional support
