Merlin UHF Cross Dipole

Mobile rugged handheld for data collection of RFID UHF tags with special Cross Dipole antenna.

Cross Dipole Antenna

The RFID Mobile Computer Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole UHF comes with two crossed dipole aerials. Here the range of linear aerials is combined with the omnidirectionality of circular aerials by avoiding the latter’s high energy consumption.

State-of-the-art RFID

With the innovative Cross Dipole aerial, RFID tags can be read from a distance of more than four meters. As the dipole aerials are alternately selected during the reading process, the orientation of the RFID tags to be read is irrelevant. Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole can read barcodes and RFID tags in one step - even tags in a closed box can be scanned. This function is particularly convenient in textile production and also in the logistics chain where individual cardboard boxes are bundled in lots and transported on pallets. As the reading of the tags with the Cross-Dipole aerials is done in a very energy-efficient way, Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole can be used up to 28 hours with one battery charge.

Robust ergonomic design

The Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole UHF's sophisticated ergonomic design and light weight (approx. 800g) proves that ease of handling was a main focus in the development of this Nordic ID device. With individual key light activation, software applications can be easily used even in dark environments. Due to the large display and the possibility to switch off the touch screen function, the risk of error is minimised. The device has been developed in consideration of typical practical requirements and subject to drop, splash water and dust tests. Nordic ID gives a 2-year guarantee for the Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole UHF RFID unit.

Excellent performance thorugh first-rate software


Combining the current Windows® CE operating system with Nordic ID software tools has been essential in contributing to the exemplary usability of this handheld device. With the improved software, RFID applications can use the entire memory. At the same time, larger and more complex applications can be run faster than ever before.

The Nordic ID Cross Dipole UHF RFID is supplied with a powerful configuration package and with pre-installed NetOp Remote Management software so that the system integrator can already configure the individual devices before they are handed to the final users. At the same time, NetOP software provides full control of the devices by enabling functions like Interactive Guidance and server-initiated OS software updates.
The software applications for Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole UHF RFID range from Naurtec Terminal emulations to Ideam application programming tools. As is the case with all Nordic ID devices, Nordic ID Merlin Cross Dipole UHF RFID combines up-to-date standard communication in one device. With technologies like GPRS, WLAN, Bluetooth and USB, this handheld can be linked to the back office, securing a seamless flow of information.
