Jovix Debuts Wearable Technology for Construction Industry
Birmingham, AL – August 11, 2017
Atlas RFID Solutions is proud to announce its advancement into wearable technology with the incorporation of the ring style barcode reader. This small, durable and convenient device allows users to scan 1-dimensional or 2-dimensional barcodes, and read RFID tags while maintaining full use of both hands. Through a series of tests, the ring-style barcode reader has recently been Jovix Certified and is ready to be used on Atlas’s existing and future sites.
Working with Atlas RFID’s material readiness application, Jovix, this introduction will revolutionize the operational efficiency in industrial construction and warehousing operations. One can wear this small size reader on their finger and keep their hands free, increasing productivity and efficiency. This ring-style RFID reader will focus on passive RFID with the ability to read RFID tags up to 2 meters away. With Internet of Things (IoT) being widely used across the industrial sector, it was timely for wearable devices to be included in material management.
The idea behind wearables is to adapt current hardware technologies in innovative ways to become more ergonomic, easily viewable, or accessible. “We’re a solutions provider, so big picture we want to make the users’ lives easier” said Jeff Burns, Associate Hardware Product Manager at Atlas RFID Solutions.
Employees can achieve the same fast, accurate RFID counts as before in a much smaller package. “We already had the gun. This is the same thing in a ring reader – the ability to free up both hands. This simplifies the work flow, freeing up their hands to pick up and move items”, said Burns.
Atlas has been a pioneer of new technology in the industrial market since their beginnings in 2007. This commitment to future innovation and excellence drives Atlas RFID to continue to provide practical technologies while staying at the forefront of emerging technologies.
