Trimble EMPOWER EM111 Asset Tracking UHF RFID Reader Module with 1D/2D Barcode Imager (865.6-867.6 MHz)



Trimble EMPOWER EM111 Asset Tracking UHF RFID Reader Module with 1D/2D Barcode Imager (865.6-867.6 MHz)

Equipped with the industry leading Honeywell N6603 Series Imaging Engine, the Trimble EMPOWER EM111 Asset Tracking Module delivers superior barcode reading performance with ultra-fast motion tolerance for outstanding speed and unrivaled accuracy. The EM111 allows you to read barcodes with ease even in low light conditions with white LED illumination and a highly visible 650 nm red laser aimer. Give your solution an edge by reading an array of traditional linear barcodes, postal codes, and both matrix and stacked 2D symbology codes using the EM111 module integrated with any of the 3 Trimble EMPOWER enabled mobile computers. For Ultra High Frequency (UHF) RFID tag reading, the EM111 includes 2 regional variants with an antenna tuned for a subset of the 865.6-867.6 MHz or 902-928 MHz band of the UHF frequency spectrum. With an EM111 module you can easily switch back and forth between reading barcodes and RFID tags with the press of a button and efficiently capture accurate data in real world conditions. Applications for EM111 come pre-installed on the EMPOWER platform, making setup fast and easy. Quickly edit barcode symbologies or configure a keyboard wedge to quickly read a variety of barcodes into an application. For full optimization and custom workflows, developers may access freely available APIs allowing full integration of barcode data into custom Android or Windows 10 applications.
