Lantech is introducing RFID tag-reading capability as a standard option on all its semi-automatic pallet stretch wrappers. The system utilizes Symbol Technologies’ new RD5000 portable reader. Capable of reading Gen 1 and 2 tags, the battery-powered system can read tags at the pallet or case level. As a simple drop-in option, it eliminates all brackets, cables, external antenna and any interface to the machine or control system, working independently with its own motion-sensing. The compact reader measures seven inches by nine inches by two inches and weighs less than four pounds. Although it is battery operated, the system can be wired to the machine’s power supply as a customer option. The RD5000’s integrated wireless LAN is compliant with 802.11a/b/g standards, allowing it to communicate with any standard WiFi network. The unit is sealed against water jets and dust, and runs under the Windows® CE operating system for application support.
