Feig Electronics Intros UHF RFID Reader for Tracking People, Assets

Feig Electronics, a supplier of RFID readers and antennas, has introduced its new UHF Directional Reader Solution (ID ISC.ANT.U500/270-DM), capable of identifying the location and direction of an RFID tag that is moving, even in congested situations. The new reader is suitable for use in health care, pharmaceuticals, event management, logistics and access control, the company reports.

Feig's new solution reads UHF RFID EPC Gen 2 tags compliant with the ISO 18000-6C standard, and includes an RFID antenna and reader in one housing with 3-D detection. Equipped with service software, the reader's modern design enables it to be mounted directly in ceilings or walls for a discreet appearance, without requiring a dedicated portal or extra protection hardware.

The UHF Directional Reader Solution can track individuals and assets in real time, the company reports. This, according to Feig, makes it useful for industrial settings in which logistical tracking is required.

"If the UHF Directional Reader Solution is mounted at a company's dock doors, it can identify the direction in which a tagged box or pallet is moving," said Klaus Schoeke, Feig's VP of technical sales, in a prepared statement. "Our new UHF reader can even track the flow of patients in a crowded hospital as they move through a busy corridor, monitoring which patient is coming in or out of the surgery room."
