The Bluebird Pidion BI500 features a 1D / 2D barcode scanner and optional RFID reader with support for 13.56MHz high-frequency RFID tags. With the GPS capability of the device, you can scan a barcode and save the location at the same time. Successful readings are confirmed with a green LED light, vibrations and a beep.

The Bluebird Pidion BI500 weighs less than 110 grams and fits easily into your pocket and adds ergonomic, fast barcode scanning to any Android, Apple iOS and Windows mobile device. It increases productivity while reducing the risk of errors. The scanner communicates via Bluetooth, but can also be used in batch mode and stores up to 300,000 barcodes.

The Bluebird Pidion BI500 contains Bluebird's own TankSmith ™ technology, which means it has been tested for maximum reliability in difficult industrial environments. It resists 1,5 meters drops and has an IP54 rating, making it resistant to splashes, water and dust.

Bluebird's software developer kit (SDK) makes it easy to integrate barcode scanning with the BI500 into any application.
