Mojix Announces the Availability of Its Next-Generation RFID System
The Mojix STAR 3000 offers cloud-based applications, industry-specific solutions, smartphone compatibly and improved performance, the company reports.
The STAR 3000 Master Controller (MCON) software supports what Sadr calls virtualization and cloud-hosting for customers needing to manage large STAR "constellations" across their supply chain, such as one system at a manufacturing site, another at a distribution center and another at retail locations. In virtual mode, the MCON software can be hosted in the cloud by various hosting-service providers, such as Amazon.com, or by a customer's IT server. That, he says, means that MCON can run on any customer's chosen platform or hosting service.
Mojix is currently designing its hardware specifically for each of its five vertical markets—for example, if a food-processing facility requires special coating to ruggedize the STAR readers. What's more, Mojix has established partnerships with several systems-integration firms specializing in these vertical markets, so that those companies can provide installation and software support.
For mobile-phone functionality, Mojix offers an Android-based solution to link data with the back-end MCON software. The phones could be used to scan bar codes or, if they are NFC-enabled, to read unique identifiers encoded to NFC-compliant passive high-frequency (HF) RFID tags, and to forward that data to be stored or linked with other information in the MCON software.
Some of Mojix's existing customers are already using the Mojix STAR 3000 system, the firm reports. Companies that have deployed the STAR system in the past include Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO), a marine transportation and logistics firm serving the oil and gas sector (see RFID Saves Oil Companies Time and Money); Lufthansa Technik (LHT), the airline's maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) arm (see Lufthansa Expands RFID Use); Daimler (see Daimler Sees Potential Benefits of Using RFID to Track Quality-Control); and a number of consumer goods suppliers (see New RFID Technology Helps Kraft, P&G, Kimberly-Clark Go the Distance).
