Nedap Unveils High-End UHF RFID Solution for Vehicle Identification

Nedap has announced its uPASS Target, a high-end RFID reader that offers long-range identification and uses the Rain RFID ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) EPC Gen 2 standard. The uPASS Target is designed for applications in which vehicles and other moving objects need to be identified automatically via passive RFID tags. The new reader offers a read range of up to 10 meters (33 feet), the company reports, making it suitable for the long-range identification of vehicles, individuals and rolling stock at industrial sites and logistics depots.

uPASS Target UHF Reader
The uPASS Target is designed to identify vehicles and drivers at a distance of up to 10 meters and a traveling speed of up to 200 kilometers per hour (125 miles per hour) by using passive UHF RFID technology (865 to 868 MHz or 902 to 928 MHz). It features a variety of industry-standard communication interfaces (IP, serial and Wiegand), as well as an aluminum chassis with a UL94 ABS cover.

Standard features, Nedap indicates, include configurable three-color LED indication, a read range limitation option, reader output formatting and easy installation. It features a circular polarized antenna that enables freedom of tag orientation and, according to Nedap, ensures a consistent read range. An optional external antenna can be added to achieve a wider or more focused read range. Nedap formatted tags are available for added security.
