— July 27, 2012

Trimble announced a new UHF RFID reader accessory for its Nomad rugged handheld computer that can aid companies in effective asset and inventory management.

The Trimble ThingMagic Reader, supports the reading and writing of EPC Global Gen2 tags and, like the device it accompanies, is rugged and built to survive drops, vibration, and weather conditions such as humidity, rain, snow and extreme temperatures.

"The Nomad has been a successful rugged mobile platform, supplying field workers with a robust tool for data capture and navigation," said Jim Sheldon, general manager of Trimble's Mobile Computing Solutions Division. "The RFID reader further extends the Nomad's capabilities and offers enterprise management more options in its use."

Similar to the widespread integration of GPS into today's positioning solutions,  Tom Grant, general manager of the ThingMagic division, believes RFID is a natural complement to many asset management applications

The new reader also includes device drivers and a software development kit, and is available in two version: one for use in Europe, and the other for use in North and Central America.
