Portable Technology Solutions Releases ClearStream Software

The solution aims to make it easy for users to manage fixed EPC Gen 2 UHF RFID readers, and to read and write data encoded on tags and then store that information on a PC.

Next, the user can begin configuring how the software will manage read events—for example, setting up an alerting system that would display a notification in the software in the event that an exception occurred, such as a particular tag being read by a reader located within an area in which that tag was not permitted. Such an alerting system, configured in the ClearStream software, could also trigger audible alarms if the alarm hardware were plugged into the Motorola device. The software can also be set up to filter out specific tags.

What's more, the user can configure the readers regarding how often they should capture read data (such as every time the device detected a tag within a portal environment), or at specified intervals (such as once daily or per hour).

Several of Portable Technology Solutions' customers have been beta-testing the ClearStream software over the past few months, says Howard Heckman, PTS' software engineer, and have indicated satisfaction with the system. "The feedback has been phenomenal," Peluso states. The ClearStream software is priced at $2,500 for the first reader, and $1,500 for an additional 11. The software can be purchased on a standalone basis, or as part of a complete solution that includes fixed Motorola readers.

According to Heckman, applications for the technology include inventory and asset tracking, access control and supply chain management, in such industries as health care, manufacturing and retail.
