LXE Inc. To Unveil RX2 Vehicle Mounted RFID Reader At Wal-Mart Supplier On-Boarding Forum And EPCglobal US Tech Expo

ATLANTA – April 24, 2006 – LXE Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged wireless computers that improve the performance of supply-chain execution applications, announced today that it will be unveiling its ultra-rugged RX2 lift truck mounted RFID reader at Wal-Mart Supplier On-Boarding Forum and EPCglobal US Tech Expo, April 25 and 26 at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Dallas, Texas. The RX2 is the second lift truck mounted RFID reader being developed by LXE, the first one being the RX1 announced last September.

The RX2 addresses a need for a “simple”, easy-to-install, vehicle mounted RFID reader that can be used for standard RFID based forklift pallet move applications such as shipping, receiving, picking and put-aways where EPC RFID based identification of pallet loads and locations are used.

The RX2’s mounting solution requires no permanent lift modifications or lift truck downtime for installation. The unit is ultra-rugged and has been designed to operate in the extreme environment found on the business end of a lift truck.
The RX2 ships ready-to-work with the Windows CE operating system and an 802.11 radio. The unit can run off its own battery or the lift truck’s power. The RX2 supports the reading of EPC Class 0, Class 1 and C1G2 (Gen2) tags.

With support for reader and device API’s, an embedded FTP server, TCP/IP networking, and a sample RFID Tag logging application, developers and integrators will find it easy to integrate RFID data into logistics applications, whether batch, real-time, client/server or .NET Compact Framework based solutions.

RX2 deployments are easily scaled up with configuration and management support provided by RS232 serial or 802.11 network connection using the RX2 Software Configuration Utility and the RX2 Software Update Manager.
Come by booth 312 for an in person tour of the RX2.
