Encompass 1i Handheld

The Encompass® 1i Handheld Reader combines TransCore’s IP30 TC RFID Scan Handle and the Intermec CN3x Mobile Computer (models CN3e and CN3f). The handheld reader is ideal for radio frequency identification (RFID) applications requiring an extended read range, multitag sorting, and memory capacity not provided by proximity technology.

TransCore’s E1i handheld reader is targeted at transportation-specific applications. The E1i was designed expressly for electronic vehicle registration and compliance, rail, fleet, electronic toll collection, government, airports, and parking/security access applications. The handheld reader allows users to read and store tag information eliminating time-consuming and error prone tag data entry tasks.

The E1i handheld reader offers users the capability of verifying tag read exceptions encountered at fixed-reader RFID sites, such as commercial, private, government, and airport parking facilities. The handheld reader’s typical read range is 3.5 to 12 feet (1.1 to 3.7 meters) depending on the tag type being read. The handheld reader can read from the following tag types: TransCore eGo and eGo Plus in Super eGo (SeGo) mode RFID tags; and Association of American Railroads (AAR); American Trucking Associations (ATA); and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) tags, whether programmed as full frame or half frame. Multitag sorting, or filtering, allows the user to specify groups within a population of eGo or eGo Plus (SeGo mode) tags to be selected and read.

The Encompass 1i handheld reader is designed for easy, comfortable RFID reading, yet it is rugged enough to withstand harsh working environments. Phone style (123) and 10-key (789) numeric keypads are available on all models and alpha keypads are available on select models. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack powers the RFID reader for an entire shift.
