Norman Perelson

With an electronics and amateur radio background, Norman started his own electronics business in 1966 which he is still running today - now specialising in computerised information systems.

Norman's interests and hobbies are numerous, but for exersize and fresh air he goes geocaching.  Other interests are living things and trying to understand the psychology of software development.

Currently he is experimenting with different kinds of RFID systems and has already developed a working, all-in-one cordless hand-held, UHF RFID reader that send the data directly by WiFi to an instance of The Jewellery Shopkeeper on the cloud. This is by far the easiest-to-use reader, having just an on-off switch and a trigger switch to activate the reads. Tags can be scanned from up to 1m away, thus allowing stock-takes without removing stock from display windows.
