Offering Flexible Data Capture Capabilities With Agile Performance
The capabilities of the RS36 versatile reader include 1D and 2D barcode scanning, HF RFID, and contactless NFC applications. With both standard and advanced range scanning, your workers can scan barcodes both near and far, thanks to the RS36's expanded working range and wide field of view.
The RS36 can also be equipped with UHF RFID read and write capabilities. It has an excellent high-speed reading rate of over 900 tags per second, significantly increasing the efficiency of inventory management and asset tracking. This mobile computer also works with software like RFID Android SDK, EZConfig, and EZEdit.

Seamless Connection Inside and Outside Your Facilities
Mobile workers often require timely access to up-to-date information in order to maximize efficiency. The RS36 empowers them with seamless Wi-Fi connectivity, built-in Bluetooth 5.1, and Wi-Fi 6 technology for faster and more reliable network connections.
The RS36's 2×2 Multiple User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technology provides low latency and improves speed, efficiency, and security even in a dense environment with multiple connected devices. With the RS36's 4G LTE connectivity, T&L drivers and field workers can efficiently access the network outdoors or off-site, keeping mobile frontline workers connected to crucial information anytime and anywhere.

Dependable Performance for Demanding Operations
The RS36's Qualcomm octa-core 2GHz CPU ensures exceptional speed, improved application performance, and reduced battery consumption. Users will enjoy smoother applications and web surfing. The device is also Android Enterprise Recommended (AER) and Google Mobile Services (GMS) verified, allowing you to utilize Google applications while maintaining a consistent user experience.
With 4GB/64GB memory, the RS36 provides plenty of space for data storage and efficiently handles different workloads. Workers will also enjoy longer operation time with its standard 4000 mAh batteries and the extended 6000 mAh batteries. With the hot-swap function, the RS36 can be easily replaced with a fully-charged battery without turning off the device or exiting current apps.

Rugged Design Protection and Sunlight Readable Display
CipherLab's RS36 is designed for maximum functionality in any environment. The interface has a large 5.5” HD+ IPS screen with a brightness of 630 nits and a panel that can be used with gloved fingers or a stylus. In addition, the device is protected from various hazards thanks to its ruggedized design. The RS36 can withstand repeated drops from a 1.5-meter height (1.8-meter with rubber boot) onto a concrete surface and remain undamaged.
The RS36 has IP65 and IP68 water/dust resistance, making it dependable in all environments. So even in rainy outdoor conditions, workers can still rely on the RS36. It also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protection and a wide operating temperature range.
