Freaquent Unveils HF Reader Complying With ISO 18000-3 Mode 3 and EPC HF RFID Standards
Freaquent froschelectronics GmbH, an Austrian original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and system provider in the field of radio frequency identification, has introduced a new multi-output high-frequency (HF) reader, the HF RFID Long-Range Interrogator (SLRM 1000), that complies with the ISO 18000-3 Mode 3 and EPC HF RFID standards. According to the company, the new reader system was designed to fully utilize the advantages of the ISO 18000-3 mode 3 standard, as well as support the ISO 15693 standard, making it suitable for document tracking, jewelry tracking and other multi-tag applications. The reader is capable of working with 424 kHz downlink data rates, which the company says makes it "the first HF RFID-system which shows the impressive speed known from UHF systems."
At present, the SLRM 1000 is already being used by several customers, including Gaming Partners International (GPI) at the gaming company's Las Vegas headquarters, according to Helmut Köberl, freaquent's CTO and managing director. GP has purchased the exclusive rights to use this reader for casino gaming applications. NXP Semiconductors, which manufacturers ISO 18000-3M3 transponder chips, is utilizing the reader as well, he says, for demonstration purposes.
The SLRM 1000 is no more expensive than multi-output HF readers available for older technologies, Köberl reports. Pricing ranges from $1,300 to $1,700, he says, depending on the quantity ordered.
