CAEN RFID fIDo Sled Reader Combines Function and Efficiency

Lightweight, long-lasting, and powered by the Impinj E710 RAIN RFID reader chip, CAEN RFID’s new handheld reader keeps work flowing smoothly in warehouses, stores, and more.

Managing inventory can be a long and manual process. Though RAIN RFID inventory solutions shave hours off manual processes, using handheld RAIN RFID readers to count tagged items can still take extra time when devices need charging or employees get tired. 

The fIDo RAIN RFID sled reader (model R1307I) from Impinj partner CAEN RFID solves both these problems. Powered by the Impinj E710 RAIN RFID reader chip, the fIDo features an embedded wireless charger that automatically powers the user’s smartphone while the attached sled is being charged, eliminating the need to detach the phone and charge it separately. The fIDo is also lightweight and ergonomically designed to avoid tiring work sessions.  

A fit for many industries 

The fIDo is an ideal handheld reader not only in inventory management, but also in asset tracking for industries such as retail and manufacturing, where multiple tagged items can be densely packed on pallets or stacked on high shelves.  

Hospital and healthcare facility workers can use the fIDo to achieve increased visibility into assets such as medicines, devices, and supplies, helping ensure critical resources are available when and where they are needed.  

And companies such as hotels, laundry services, and others in the hospitality industry will find the fIDo can quickly and easily track the status and location of linens and employee uniforms as they are laundered, allocated to employees, and returned after use.  

The Impinj E710 RAIN RFID reader chip enables the fIDo to offer the superior sensitivity, long range, and fast read rates required in these and other demanding industries. With an IP65 enclosure rating, the fIDo is also perfect for use in harsh industrial or outdoor environments where water or dust intrusion is a factor.  

Expanding the CAEN family of handheld readers 

The fIDo is the first traditional RAIN RFID handheld sled reader from CAEN RFID. The fIDo’s design differs from a similar CAEN RFID device, the CAEN skID mobile reader, which mounts to the back of a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile reading device and is intended for less demanding, medium-range applications such as inventory counting in smaller spaces that require less read range. 

The Impinj platform can help industries such as retail, manufacturing and automotive, healthcare, and others, improve their operations. Read more about RAIN RFID and how the Impinj platform can help your company work smarter and more efficiently.
