B.O.S. Launches RFID System for Tracking Inventory at Produce Packing House

Better Online Solutions (B.O.S.), an Israeli provider of RFID and mobile solutions, as well as supply chain solutions for enterprises, has announced that its RFID and Mobile Division has launched an RFID-based system for tracking inventory at a produce packing house.

B.O.S. offers integration services and standalone products, including RFID and AIDC hardware and communications equipment, middleware and industry-specific software applications. Its supply chain division offers electronic components consolidation services to the aerospace, defense, medical and telecommunications industries, and to enterprise customers worldwide.

The RFID system enables the automatic tracking of fruit pallets from a sorting machine through various cold-storage rooms until truck loading. It continuously shows the locations of pallets at various stations within the packing house and interfaces with the facility's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. The solution comprises RFID readers and tags, custom-made software from B.O.S. and the ERP interface.

ZKAccess Releases Multi-Biometric RFID-based Access-Control Device

ZKAccess, a provider of biometric, RFID and access-control solutions, has unveiled what it calls the security industry's first multi-biometric access-control device with SilkID technology.

The ProBio-ID
The company's new ProBio-ID device connects directly to door locks or panels, similar to how a common keypad or RFID card reader would be installed. "ProBio-ID has the unique ability to read faces, fingerprints, RFID cards, PIN codes or any combination of these four credentials," said Larry Reed, ZKAccess' CEO in a prepared statement. The system's facial-recognition camera provides hands-free access control. The solution also includes ZKAccess' SilkID fingerprint sensor.
