Commercial and government supply chains will find the IV7 ideal for pick and put away applications. The Intermec vehicle mount computer can command the IV7, equipped with a location tag-sensing antenna, to scan for RFID tags when a pallet is picked up. The IV7 captures not only the location of the pallet pick up, but also through what doorway it passed, the path the forklift traveled and where the pallet will be placed.
Intermec IV7 RFID-reader
The IV7 is part of an award winning family of Intermec readers that include several handheld and fixed-mount form factors.
As Intermec’s first packaged forklift-mountable RFID reader system, the IV7 is designed for serial attachment to any Intermec fixed vehicle mount computer. Both devices are built to withstand the rigors of harsh, industrial environments and are sealed to IP65 ratings. The Intermec vehicle mount computer, acting as the local host for the IV7, provides network management and security. The built-in DC-DC converter handles the noisy input power environment.
While portal mounted readers are capable of capturing pallet and carton data, the tagged items must be brought to the reader. Enterprises often need the flexibility to read RFID tags in certain and not-so-certain locations which may not be near the location of a fixed reader.
The IV7 not only delivers the flexibility of “read where you need,” but also a cost advantage over portal reader systems wherever the number of dock doors is significantly larger than the number of fork trucks.
