  • In today’s rapidly-changing information society, large corporations and small companies alike
    increasingly require modern data collection and auto-ID systems. To meet these demands, GCS has
    developed an innovative data acquisition unit, the “ProxiPen.” The ProxiPen reads radio frequency
    identification (RFID) tags and other transponders automatically, and can fully satisfy the data collection
    needs of both commercial and industrial applications.


    • ProxiPen can read RFID tags even if they are wet, frosty, dirty, greasy, or painted over
    • RFID tags can be concealed behind wallpaper, wallboard, plaster, paneling, mirrors or any other nonmetallic surface – a real plus in applications where aesthetics or vandalism are considerations
    • ProxiPen “autosenses” and reads RFID tags whenever they come into its reading range
    • Low power consumption – requires one “AA” commercial alkaline, lithium or rechargeable battery that can be replaced by user without any special tools
    • High memory capacity (4,063 readings) – can be used for long periods in the field without the need for frequent downloading
    • Easy to use; no external controls


    • Compact, lightweight, simple to operate
    • Tough waterproof polycarbonate housing
    • Resists heat, shock and hydro-carbons
    • Powered by one “AA” commercial alkaline, lithium or rechargeable battery
    • Reads RFID proximity tags
    • Provides visible and audible indications to confirm information has been read
