IDC’s ZB111 Zigbee wireless barcode reader is suitable for a variety of industrial and logistics barcode scanning applications.

The reader has been designed for operation with IEEE 802.15.4/Zigbee wireless sensor networks.

The ZB111 comes with a keypad and graphical display enabling barcode scans, interactive messages, commands and prompts to be sent to central warehouse management and manufacturing execution server-based systems.

The ruggedised handheld unit has low-power requirements and is rechargeable from a standard 5VDC/mains charger.

The barcode reader is intended to be used in warehousing, manufacturing and logistics applications as a low-cost alternative traditional windows-based handheld devices with alphanumeric keys and touch screens.

It is designed to interact with a central server as most of the intelligence will be in the server.

Scanning a barcode will automatically put the details on the screen and transmit the data to the server.

The server will then respond with validation of prompts on the display or elsewhere such as an overhead flat screen.

The ZB111 uses Zigbee for its network connection.

This requires a single Ethernet gateway together with low-cost routers to extend the coverage.

Once the network is established then, in addition to communicating with devices such as the barcode reader, other products can also be incorporated into the system.

A .NET Software Developer Kit and starter kit for the ZB111 will be available for developers soon.

Comibined with ZB Mon diagnostic software this will provide users with the ability to get started without the need for an in-depth knowledge of the Zigbee stack or comm’s protocol.

Specific applications include: receipt and validation of goods arriving on trailers at intake in conjunction with overhead flat screens over bay doors; picking systems where cartons are split into individual items, which are then placed into totes; and remote control of conveyors for maintenance purposes where a barcode is fitted to each motor drive.
