The use of 1- and 2-D barcodes and NFC/HF RFID transponders is steadily increasing. They identify items, pallets, containers, storage locations and even yard locations, and therefore help to keep track of asset movements. This company has developed data-capture software, the CamScan Keyboard App (photo), which allows — even offline — barcodes to be scanned and NFC/HF RFID transponders to be read or written using the camera of a smartphone or tablet. The ecom CamScan app is a “keyboard wedge” software utility based on Honeywell’s SwiftDecoder Mobile professional offline barcode decoding software. It uses the integrated camera of the world’s first Zone 1/21 and Division 1 certified tablet, the Tab-Ex 01, and the world’s first intrinsically safe 4G/LTE-capable Android smartphone, the Smart-Ex 01, to scan barcodes, automatically converting them to human readable text. — ecom instruments GmbH, Assamstadt, Germany
