GAO-EDA-108 Rugged PDA or Mobile Computer with GPS and Pistol



GAO-EDA-108 Handheld Enterprise Digital Assistant, Computer or Data Terminal with UHF RFID Reader, 1D/2D Barcode Scanner, Iris Recognition, 4G, WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS, Pistol, ARM Cortex Quad Core Processor, Android 6.0, and 13 MP Autofocus Camera is an Android rugged mobile computer. It features 8000mAh powerful battery and barcode scanning. This device boasts of high-level UHF RFID capability which allows it to read common RFID tags with high accuracy and speed. It can read tags in bulk from long distances which enables enterprises to deploy this single device in many areas with enhanced efficiency, especially in asset management, retail, warehousing, fleet management, etc.

This handheld device can be equipped with R2000 linearly (1.8 dBi) or circularly (4.0 dBi) polarized antenna. A linear polarized antenna allows a read distance of 21 m indoors and 7 m in outdoors. This makes inventory management in retail stores or warehouses much easier. The circular polarized antenna provides a wide RF field capable of scanning tags that are spread out over a large area. That means you can just wave the device to scan tags of inconsistent orientation from a reasonably short or long distance.
