Motion® Secures CID2 Certification for F5 Rugged Tablet and EasyConnect UHF RFID Long-Range Reader

Motion Computing announced today it has secured Class I, Division 2 (CID2) certification for the F5te Rugged Tablet & EasyConnect UHF RFID Long-Range Reader. With CID2 certification, Motion F5te Rugged Tablets & EasyConnect RFID Long-Range Readers can be used in new environments, in new ways, such as streamlining inspections at oil and gas companies and improving plant safety and integrity across process manufacturing.

“Our rugged technology solutions are purposely designed to improve mobile workflows across targeted verticals,” said Patty Tang, Manager, Product Marketing at Motion. “With the CID2 certification, we can bring the many benefits of our F5te tablet and RFID Reader into new environments. The basic needs of the workers in these environments are the same as our existing target verticals, so the transition is natural. We are confident these new end-users will embrace our technology and reap many productivity, safety and efficiency gains.”

Motion F5te rugged platform is the ideal companion tool for mobile workers, featuring a slip-free grip and molded handle. The Windows tablet is powered with up to the Intel® Core™ i7 vPro™ processor with a sealed and full-body rubberized casing, the Motion F5te is designed to prevent and survive bumps or drops that mobile workers can face on a daily basis on the job site. It is rigorously tested for IP54 rating and MIL-STD-810G drop test (48” drop). In addition to the tablet itself, Motion offers a full line of workflow-enhancing accessories, wireless networking solutions, as well as software and other rugged tablet platforms.

Motion’s EasyConnect RFID Long-Range Reader is a mobile UHF RFID Reader solution designed specifically for Motion’s F5-series Tablets. The reader delivers the mobility and productivity of a hand-held RFID Reader device with the flexibility and functionality of a powerful PC.
