Alien ALR-H460

Device Review

The Alien ALR-H460 is an Android-based portable data collection device with an ergonomic design and an IP64 sealing for dust and water resistance. In addition to reading RFID tags, the device can also read most 1D and 2D barcodes.

The ALR-H460 is targeted at warehouse, logistics, and manufacturing applications in the retail industry. The portable reader is part of Alien Technology’s complete range of passive, GS1-based RFID products, including both tags and readers.

When testing the capabilities of the ALR-H460 we found the performance to be exceptional in both RFID read rate, and range. Together with a great barcode scanner the ALR-H460 can handle any enterprise data collection task with TracerPlus. All features of the RFID and barcode scanners are supported making for a robust feature set when paired with our software.

The Alien ALR-H460 offers superior performance in an affordable package. It is a compelling barcode and RFID scanner when combined with TracerPlus software.
