Janam: Rail-specific rugged mobile computer

The XM2-RFID for Rail mobile computer from Janam Technologies is designed to read the AEI RFID tags required on all North American rail cars, allowing rail and intermodal companies to track and monitor equipment effectively.

The unit reads AEI tags from at least one meter (3.3 feet) away and still retains half of its battery charge after five hours of continuous use and more than 40,000 tag reads. At a mere 13 ounces, the device is far smaller and lighter than any competitive device. Its lightweight, ergonomic design is comfortable to use for hours at a time, which means less fatigue for rail workers who use it.

The XM2-RFID for Rail comes equipped with a user-addressable compass for use with transportation applications, a 3.2-inch color display, 2D imager for robust decoding of the hardest-to-read barcodes, and support for Microsoft's Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating system.
