OmniAir Consortium Certifies STAR Systems International Multi-Protocol Tolling Reader

STAR Systems International (SSI), a Hong Kong-based RFID technology and professional services provider, has announced that its Titan UHF RFID reader has been certified for high-speed tolling and interoperability by the OmniAir Consortium. "The Titan reader is a ground-breaking product for the electronic toll collection market," said Stephen Lockhart, SSI's CTO, in a prepared statement. "By partnering with OmniAir and subjecting Titan to rigorous performance testing, SSI continues to show our commitment to our customers by demonstrating compatibility with industry standards."

Designed specifically for high-speed, multi-protocol tolling systems, the Titan supports up to four antennas and multiple communications protocols simultaneously, including ISO 18000-6C/63, TDM (IAG), ISO 18000-6B-80k, ISO 18000-6B, ISO 10374 (ATA), Title 21 (T21) and Artefato SJ5511. The Titan features Doppler compensation, cellular/noise signal rejection and pre-distortion optimization, enabling it to offer high read accuracy for open road tolling and multi-lane free-flow systems.

"Congratulations to Star Systems for earning OmniAir Certification for their eighth tolling device, more than any single vendor," said Jason Conley, the OmniAir Consortium's executive director, in the prepared statement. "OmniAir Certification provides assurance to tolling agencies that certified devices conform with industry standards and meet minimum interoperability and performance requirements."

The Titan has an upper operating temperature of 70 degrees Celsius and can transmit at full power using Power-over-Ethernet-plus. An internal database can store more than one million transactions. "SSI is proud and excited to offer Titan to our partners as a product that is certified by OmniAir," said Bob Karr, SSI's CEO, in the prepared statement. "Our team is fully committed to supplying the market with high-quality and high-performance RFID products and backing up those products with world-class support."
