BarCode - RFID Combo from Motorola

Built-in intelligence makes it an excellent choice for legacy POS systems.  

      In addition to scanning bar codes and reading RFID codes, the unit is programmable to allow it to pick a UPC code out of an embedded EPC code from the RFID chip.    In English - if the item has only an RFID code to work with,  the scanner will still be able to pick the UPC code out of the RFID chip and pass that through just as it does a bar code - so that a point of sale system can find the item being scanned, properly price it and decrement the inventory.
