Freefloat Key can add functionality and style
November 6, 2014
The most common use of Freefloat Key is to add a keyboard with a customized design to an existing application. For terminal emulators like Freefloat Access it's important to provide all special keys that are used in VT, 3270 and 5250 emulations. If you are running a custom designed application perhaps you value the possibility to add some visual beauty to the layout higher. Image the following scenario. We have an existing application that is vertical (or square) by design. Because it has been designed for Windows CE or Windows Embedded Handheld terminals. Now the customer want's to use for example a Intermec CV30 or Honeywell Thor CV31 on a picking cart instead. The application fits in the left part of screen which leaves room for Freefloat Key on the right side. The [...]

February 21, 2014

The UPC Code

This June, the UPC barcode will celebrate its 30th anniversary since the first package of Wrigleys was scanned in a retail scanner. And since then it has been THE solution that retail relies on for an efficient handling of customers purchases. Different new technolgies has been introduced such as RFID as a new revolutionary solution to amend any problems. But up until now they have all been costly and required a new infrastucture, scanners or readers, to handle it. Up until today when imaging and vision technology is everywhere and is getting cheaper and cheaper. Barcode scanners traditionally suffers from the facet they can only read in one direction, linear scanners, and only in two colors, usually black and white.

Have you ever seen RFID?
August 21, 2013
20130821-195146.jpg

One of the benefits with barcode reading over RFID is that you can see what you are reading and visually verify that the correct data was read.


Here is an interesting video from a research project called Touch that wants to help us understand how a radio field is spread. And they do it in a very clever way by using a RFID reader and a very special tag. And everything happens in a totally black room. Because they want to capture everything on film. But only the LED equipped tag that is. The results are nothing but fascinating.

Smart printers with C#
Intermec announces the next generation smart printers that features C#. Smart Printers work by running applications directly in the printer, so they do not require a separate computer to control the label printing process. They also can interact with other devices in the enterprise. Intermec C# will be included directly in the printer’s firmware, so will not require a separate purchase. Introducing C# in printers is a very clever move by Intermec. It connects developers from the PC world to printers. The gap between legacy smart printing technology and developers using Microsoft's platform has been too large. Now it's bridged by Intermec and we wish them success with their new printers.
