Easy2Read Embedded Readers.

Great Performance in Small Size.

Typical products that feature UHF RFID are Handheld and PDA devices, label printers and applicators, desktop readers, kiosks, industrial readers and smart shelves.

Embedded RFID readers are the best choice for all companies wishing to integrate their existing or new products with RFID functionality.

Easy2Read Fixed Readers.

Always connected. Everywhere.

The typical and most frequent installation of UHF RFID technology is the so-called portal or gate. It consists of a fixed reader (interrogator) placed around an area of entrance/exit from a stockhouse or a manufacturing plant.

Fixed readers are sometimes used outdoors for vehicles or people identification, at the entrance of parking lots or any other entry point in buildings and boundaries of enterprise premises. Sports events are also using UHF RFID on check points to verify timings and performances in amateur and professional races.

Easy2Log Temperature Tags.

Cool, Always.

Vaccines, drugs and clinical trials products need to be shipped within a prescribed temperature range to maintain their efficacy as well as food to maintain its freshness.

The benefits of applying RFID and sensors to perishable goods include improved food and drugs safety, longer vaccines and rug efficacy, more efficient product recalls, reduced costs due to less spoilage, lower inventories, more efficient logistics, and improved customer service.
