Embisphere Unveils Multipurpose UHF RFID Reader for Retailers
Embisphere has announced a new multipurpose RFID reader, known as the embiPos Air. The wall-mountable reader integrates a built-in ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) circular-polarized antenna in a thin, compact shape, the company reports, making it suitable for picking and packing, point-of-sale, fitting-room and shelving applications. According to Embisphere, the device—which supports the EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C specifications—has already been chosen by several retailers, including sporting goods retailer Decathlon.Microsoft Windows Phone or Windows—through Bluetooth, with up to a 30-meter (98.4-foot) range. It can be interfaced directly in keyboard emulation mode or via its application programming interface (API). The reader measures 114 millimeters by 189 millimeters by 12 millimeters (4.5 inches by 7.4 inches by 0.5 inch), and weighs 250 grams (0.6 ounce).
GAO RFID Launches New Family of On-Metal RFID Tags
GAO RFID has announced a new family of mount-on-metal ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) EPC Gen 2 RFID tags resistant to extreme temperatures, humidity and impact. All tags in the new family are RoHS-compliant and have an IP68 rating for certified protection from dust and water. These tags can be used for applications requiring the identification, tracking and monitoring of metallic assets, the company reports. GAO offers bar-code printing and RFID encoding for these tags.
Thinner and shorter tags are valuable in environments in which a lower profile is required, according to the company.
