ECOM UNVEILS CAMSCAN TO CAPTURE AND ENCODE RFID DATA

Ecom instruments, a provider of intrinsically safe mobile devices and solutions, has announced its new data-capture software, known as the CamScan Keyboard App, designed to allow 1D and 2D bar codes to be scanned (even offline) simply using the camera of a smartphone or tablet. The software also enables Near Field Communication (NFC) and other types of RFID transponders to be read and encoded.

Ecom's CamScan app works in conjunction with RFID data captured by the RFID-enabled Ident-Ex 01 and i.roc Ci70-Ex handheld computers, for applications calling for the scanning of 200 or more scans per hour, under challenging circumstances, and when long-range scanning from a distance of up to 15 meters (49 feet) is required. The Ident-Ex 01 is an intrinsically safe Bluetooth "All-in-One" bar-code scanner and RFID reader, the company reports, while the i.roc Ci70-Ex is an intrinsically safe PDA.

The ecom CamScan app is a "keyboard wedge" software utility based on Honeywell's SWIFTDecoder Mobile professional offline bar-code decoding software. According to the company, it uses the integrated camera of the world's first Zone 1/21 and Division 1 certified tablet, the Tab-Ex 01, and the world's first intrinsically safe 4G / LTE-capable Android smartphone, the Smart-Ex 01, to scan bar codes, automatically converting them to human-readable text.
