EECC's New Guide Compares Read-Write Performance of 250 UHF Tags
The European EPC Competence Center (EECC) has announced its new annual UHF Tag Performance Guide, titled "UHF Tag Benchmark Study," which covers 250 different ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags. The latest edition of the report—the eighth year of its release—measured and compared the read and write performances for each of the tags covered, and it found a variation in tag-write performance of approximately a factor of 10 between the best and worst UHF tags. The EECC was founded by GS1 Germany, Deutsche Post DHL and Metro Group in 2004, with the specific objective of bringing technical acumen and transparency to the RFID industry.Xerafy, HID Global and Omni-ID.
The new "UHF Tag Benchmark Study" allows professional users to efficiently select the best-suited UHF tags for every imaginable application, according to Conrad von Bonin, the EECC's CEO. This is particularly important today, he says, since the diversity of UHF products is larger than ever, selection criteria is highly complex and key features of UHF tags continue to evolve along multiple, parallel dimensions.
As in previous years, a portion of the testing and analysis work performed to create the new study at EECC was funded by the SMART NRW project, which is part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Available now, the study costs €495 annually with a five-year subscription, or €995 as a one-time purchase. All products are shipped in hardcopy.
