Our RFID Product Portfolio for your Wireless IoT Implementation
Being the inventor of the QR Code®, DENSO is a specialist in scanners and handheld terminals for mobile data capture – in retail, warehousing, manufacturing and many more industries. Some years ago, we started to expand our portfolio range to include RFID products. RFID technology shows unique possibilities for current and especially for future developments within the framework of the Internet of Things.
In the era when everything is smartly interconnected, our RFID terminals prove helpful. Our pocket scanner SE1-BUB-C is our smallest and most lightweight scanner; perfectly usable at the POS and for short distance reading. On the other hand, our BHT-1200 RFID is one of our most popular gun grip handheld terminals and is made for long distance scanning in warehouses, for example.
With the implementation of RFID technology in some of our intuitive products, we are proud to be one of the drivers of the Internet of Things.
The QR Code was invented for Toyota by DENSO in 1994 by Masahiro Hara. In 2014, it won the European Inventor Award. 25 years later, the question arises as to whether the QR Code requires a security update.
DENSO WAVE EUROPE meets these requirements with the Secure QR Code (SQRC®).
Expanding RFID solutions and increasing popularity in the market!

(Head Office in Israel CEO: Haim Bar-On), an RFID software solution provider concluded a business collaboration agreement aiming at expanding retail solutions utilizing RFID technology.
How RFID Tracking can help with lost bags at the airport
Airlines want to use RFID technology to create solutions for lost baggage. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that from 2020, each piece of luggage will be equipped with an RFID tag.
DENSO WAVE EUROPE, part of the Toyota group, knows the benefits of RFID.
The innovative UR20 scanner series from the experts for mobile data collection can also be used perfectly at the airport. The new SP1 RFID scanner offers advantages as well. The QK30 scanner is already in use at Birmingham Airport.
Smart Glove for more Efficiency
In a warehouse management and order picking environment, work safety is not the only thing that plays a major role. Ergonomic aspects must also be considered, as well as work efficiency. They both heavily influence daily operations. In addition, companies are focusing more and more on employee satisfaction.
DENSO WAVE EUROPE has reacted to the demands of the market and is now ready to launch a smart glove – the SF1 Wearable. Kaber Kolioutsis, Marketing Communication Specialist at DENSO WAVE EUROPE, explains:
“The biggest advantage of our new wearable is that users have both hands free. This makes tasks much easier, for example order picking, and helps increase work safety.”
Simple smart devices are turned into high-speed UHF RFID scanners!
DENSO, part of the Toyota Group and inventor of the QR Code, introduces the innovative SP1 RFID scanner to the market. With the modern RFID scanner from the experts of mobile data collection, simple smart devices are turned into high-speed UHF RFID scanners. Processes, such as inventories, can be accelerated by up to 50 per cent, in comparison to previous models.
“RFID allows an enormous increase in efficiency in data collection, for example in retail and logistics. With our new SP1 RFID scanner, the RFID feature can now be added to almost any smart device. This allows companies, from the sectors retail and logistics for instance, to avoid having to completely replace their equipment. However, they can still include RFID technology into their processes, such as inventories,” explains Kaber Kolioutsis, Marketing Communication Specialist at the DENSO Auto-ID Business Unit.
