Truecount Launches 'RFID in a Briefcase' Solution to Simplify Retailers' Deployments

While many retailers are receiving merchandise with RFID tags attached by their suppliers, others are still daunted by the prospect of employing radio frequency identification for inventory-tracking purposes. Many RFID deployments include the installation of one or more fixed readers, as well as software and integration services.

Truecount aims to meet retailers' needs with what it calls "RFID in a briefcase"-a solution, known as RFID 2-GO, that provides all of the necessary RFID hardware and software (except for tags), packed into a compact carrying case. The company began marketing the system this summer. RFID 2-GO is intended for small to mid-sized retailers.

The heavy-duty protective case contains a laptop computer, a Motorola Solutions FX7400 fixed reader with an AN710 antenna, and a Motorola MC3190-Z handheld interrogator and cradle for uploading data from the handheld to the laptop. To operate the system, a user need only plug the computer into a power supply, and the reader into the laptop's USB port.
