The Times—and RFID—Are a Changin'

The technology is evolving in new and innovative ways.

Each year, RFID Journal produces a product showcase at our RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition. These are large structures with images of new products being introduced at the event. It helps attendees unfamiliar with all of the RFID solution providers find exhibitors offering products of interest to them.

For the past week, I have been going through some of the submissions for this year's showcase, and I've been impressed at how much radio frequency identification technology has evolved. Not long ago, there were simple RFID labels, handheld readers and fixed readers in our showcases. Now, there are a wide variety of tags for almost any object and any application, as well as an amazing array of readers. Here are a few highlights you'll see at the event:

WaveSafe: WaveSafe labels have been developed to meet the growing demands of the food industry. They are designed to withstand up to five minutes in a microwave, while delivering high read tracking capabilities.

Guard RFID PT-3 Personnel Tag: This new lightweight personnel tag includes a push button that can be configured to generate an alarm in the event of an emergency.

Powercast UHF RFID Batteryless Retail Price Tag: Utilizing Powercast's RF-to-DC power harvesting technology, this new retail price tag sits shelf-edge and boasts perpetual operation with any typical UHF RFID reader.

Sundog RFID Staples: These ruggedized RFID staples for wood surfaces are ideal for tracking logs, lumber, utility poles, railroad ties, pallets and just about anything else made of wood.

Savi IoT Sensor: This unique sensor uses cellular transmission plus RFID support to eliminate supply chain blind spots of high-value military assets in transit through harsh, infrastructure-less environments.

AsReader ASR-R250G with AsTagFinder: This groundbreaking handheld reader locates tags in three dimensions as blips on a radar-like display.

Brady CenSys Reader: This IoT-enabled UHF RFID reader requires only power. Connect it to your Wi-Fi network and you have an easy-to-install and cost-effective tracking solution.
