RFID Event to Feature Record Number of New Products
RFID technology is evolving quickly, and solution providers are introducing a new wave of highly innovative products for new applications, designed to make deployments easier and less complex. Some of the products that attendees will be able to view at LIVE! include:
•HID Global's Trusted Tag Service: This platform eliminates the inherent risks of authenticating original documents, processes, data-logging and high-value assets via traditional sign-off procedures, by using smartphone applications, cloud-based security services and secured data on Near Field Communication (NFC) tags to authenticate products and documents.
•Zebra Technologies' Seamless Chip-based Serialization for RFID Printer-Encoders: This enhancement for Zebra's RXi4 and RZ series RFID printers reduces the complexity of managing and creating item-level serial numbers for UHF RFID, thereby making printing and encoding a serialized Electronic Product Code (EPC) tag no more complicated than printing a standard Universal Product Code (UPC) ticket.
•Omni-ID's UltraThin IQ 400 and IQ 600 On-metal/On-liquid Labels: These are the first RFID labels that can be printed and commissioned onsite using ordinary RFID label printers, and still work on metal objects or objects with a high water content.
•InfoChip's App for iPhone and Android: This free application, available for the Apple iPhone and Android platforms, enables users to read an asset's NFC tag and immediately retrieve that item's most recent vital safety and inspection information.
•Xerafy's Titanium Metal Skin: This passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID label for both metallic and non-metallic assets has a small profile of 1.77 inches by 0.22 inch by 0.03 inch (45 millimeters by 5.6 millimeters by 0.76 millimeter), weighs just 0.11 ounce (3.1 grams) and has a read range of up to 4 feet (1.2 meters) on and off metal, under both United States and European Union frequency regulations.
