General Info

The iRFID500 is an intrinsically safe handheld RAIN RFID Reader, designed for use in hazardous areas and harsh environments such as offshore, marine, chemical and industrial environments. The device is certified for use in ATEX and IECEx Zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.

Developed in partnership with Extronics, the iRFID500 has been created to work seamlessly with smartphones, tablets, and other Windows/Android devices to give a greater range of functionality. The iRFID500 is invaluable for supporting operations such as inventory management, tracking and tracing, maintenance planning and regulatory compliance.

Lightweight and ergonomic, iRFID500 is easy to use with one hand. The stylus nib means you can even operate a connected tablet while wearing gloves, avoiding unnecessary time wasting and helping you work more productively.

Large internal memory means the iRFID500 can be used in conjunction with smartphone or as a standalone device giving you greater efficiency and flexibility of usage.

Successful tag reading is indicated on the LCD display as well as by vibration and a buzzer sound ensuring accurate reads.

Battery life of 12 hours while being used for thousands of tag reads means that IR500 is a viable accompaniment for workers during long shifts.
