Lyngsoe Unveils Three RFID Products for Logistics, Shipping-Container Security

Lyngsoe Systems has announced three new offerings in its Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID product line: the DanEseal by Oneseal, the Sealing Terminal, and the Alarm Gate. All three products comply with the ISO 18000-6C and EPC Gen 2 RFID standards.

The DanEseal by Oneseal has a pull-to-tighten wire cable for locking onto a shipping container, the company reports. It has a built-in RFID tag with an omnidirectional antenna and a chip with a 128-bit Electronic Product Code (EPC), a 96-bit tag identifier (TID), a 48-bit factory unique serial number and 320 bits of user memory. The chip also features read protection, write lock, an access password and a user password. The container is secured by pulling the wire cable through the seal body until it reaches the black coating. The RFID chip is activated as the wire is pulled through. The tag's read range is 5 to 10 meters (16.4 to 32.8 feet) on a European Union metal cargo container and 8 meters (26 feet) on a U.S. metal cargo container.

Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics DanESeal
The Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics - Sealing Terminal is a handheld RFID reader for identifying and verifying a DanEseal attached to a container. For example, to prevent corruption and fake sealing, a user identifies himself or herself with a personal password on the Sealing Terminal. The user can then read the DanEseal's RFID tag before the seal is attached to the container, and the Sealing Terminal will verify whether or not it is an authorized seal with all included security functions. The Sealing Terminal cannot perform a correct container sealing with unauthorized seals, Lyngsoe Systems reports. Finally, the Sealing Terminal is used to link the DanEseal to the specific container's ISO number and other systems utilizing optical character recognition (OCR). The operator then seals the container and interrogates the DanEseal's RFID tag in order to verify that the seal is securely closed. The operator ends the sealing process by using the Sealing Terminal to take a photo of the correctly attached DanEseal, which can be later used as documentation of correct sealing. All information regarding the sealing process is then forwarded to the Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics platform.

Lyngsoe LIVE Logistics Alarm Gate
The Alarm Gate is an RFID reader with alarm functionality, used for container security solutions. It can be installed at any supply chain checkpoint at which visible indication of seal status is required—for instance, border crossings and bonded warehouse entry gates. It is designed for harsh outdoor environments, provides easy tamper detection, and facilitates supply chain visibility and optimized logistic operations, the company reports.

The gate works with the DanEseal seals, has one internal and one external RFID antenna incorporated, measures 305 millimeters by 305 millimeters by 70 millimeters (12 inches by 12 inches by 3.1 inches) and weighs 9 kilograms (19.8 pounds), and has an IP 67 rating.
