MultiPen - 3 in 1 RFID Reader

The MultiPen is an innovative  Mobile RFID/NFC Reader, with capability of  reading UIDs of passive RFID TAGs with various  frequency combinations. The MultiPen allows to transfer UID reads via Bluetooth to the host-computer (Tablet, Laptop or Smartphone). It is also possible to store the UIDs in the integrated data base of the MultiPen. After connecting via Bluetooth- or USB the data can be sent to the host.  An integrated Real-Time Clock makes it possible to store time stamps related to the UID readings. The MultiPen makes RFID/NFC applications in mobile maintenance, inventory /asset management, guards control systems, in Logistics because of the easy handling quite efficient.  If RFID/NFC TAGs are mounted very close to each other or placed in the corner the small reading tip makes it possible to read the UIDs, so equipment can be identified easy and without restrictions. See more details in the attachements.
