The IH21 handheld RFID reader is for use with Honeywell mobile computers when high-performance RFID reading in a compact, lightweight package is required. Sleek, semi-rugged, and lightweight, the IH21 reader helps speed up retail inventory counts, omni-channel order fulfillment, product receiving, shelf restocking, and pick lists, increasing efficiency and productivity.
Read More Tags In Less Time
The fast RFID module and versatile antenna design enables rapid tag reading in front of the antenna with high accuracy counting of all tags in the area and virtually eliminating bad read results.
Lightweight, Ergonomic, and Rugged
A lightweight and ergonomic design makes the IH21 reader comfortable to use all day long while the semi-rugged construction helps protect against drops and falls.
Single-Point Device Charging
The ePop-Loq® system allows simultaneous charging of the IH21 reader and connected mobile computer in the docking station, ensuring both are ready for use.
Secure Data Transfer
The ePop-Loq provides a direct connection between the handheld terminal and the IH21 reader, eliminating interferences or connection losses and giving peace of mind with secure data transfer.
USB or Bluetooth Connectivity
The IH21 connects to the mobile computer via either USB or Bluetooth® – users can choose whichever one best suits their use case, reducing investments needed in charging accessories.
Compatible with Popular Retail Models
The IH21 reader is compatible with many popular Honeywell retail mobile computing solutions including the Dolphin™ 75e, CT40, CT50, and CT60, as well as the ScanPal™ EDA50 series.
Today’s retailers are facing pressure like never before to keep better track of their inventory and ensure that their brick and mortar stores are always adequately stocked and replenished to meet increasingly sophisticated customer expectations, all with fewer employees and fewer resources. Many are looking to Honeywell’s mobile computing, scanning, and RFID technology to help streamline the process and increase their efficiency and productivity.
Introducing the Honeywell IH21 handheld UHF RFID reader designed to provide fast, high-volume RFID tag reading performance for applications such as retail inventory counts, omni-channel order fulfillment, product receiving, shelf restocking, and pick lists.
The IH21 UHF RFID reader has a unique, patented ePop-Loq snap-on connector integrated on the top surface, which enables a direct data and charge connection between the UHF reader and handheld mobile computer unit. The ePop-Loq snap-on system allows the user to quickly and easily connect one of Honeywell’s popular mobile computers, such as the Dolphin 75e, Dolphin CT40, Dolphin CT50, Dolphin CT60, or ScanPal EDA50 series to the IH21 unit. The advanced antenna design also allows the IH21 unit to read most common supply chain RFID tags in front of the antenna, to eliminate bad reading results.
Users simply point, aim, and press the trigger – enabling all items within range to be read nearly simultaneously, significantly reducing cycle count time and speeding up the inventory process up to 20 times faster than using barcodes.
Connection to the mobile computer can be done either via USB or Bluetooth with the ePop-Loq. Once connected, the IH21 RFID reader and the mobile computer battery can be simultaneously charged in the docking station, ensuring users that the combined unit is always ready to go.
