Seamlessly Upgrade Barcode Systems with Speedway Connect

One of RFID’s strongest value propositions is streamlining and increasing efficiency of automated data collection. A long-standing form of automated data collection has been scanning printed barcodes. Barcode technology represents a major upgrade of data collection over manually keying data, and as such have become nearly ubiquitous in inventory, Point-Of-Sale, ticketing and personal identification systems.

Just as barcodes represented a significant upgrade in collecting data over manual entry, UHF RFID represents a similar leap in technological capability over barcodes. Barcodes are limited by needing to be scanned one at a time, and with direct optical line-of-site. RFID solves these issues by allowing a very high throughput of up to 1100 tags per second, and does not require line-of-site allowing tags to be read inside a larger case, shopping cart, or other container.

To help seamlessly ingrate the benefits of RFID technology into existing barcode systems, Impinj developed the innovative, easy to use Speedway Connect software. Speedway Connect operates as a middleware client  for the powerful Speedway Revolution and XPortal readers to handle parsing and delivering RFID tag reads so that users can take advantage of the efficiency of RFID without needing to spend time or resources integrating a new hardware component or developing new software.

Speedway Connect allows Serial, TCP/IP, USB Drive and USB keyboard wedge output options, so that RFID can be deployed directly as a replacement or even alongside an existing barcode system. Speedway Connect represents a truly ‘plug and play’ option for integrating RFID solutions.

Increase Efficiency with the Passive Portal!

 Increase Efficiency with the Passive Portal!

 The Quick Mount Passive Portal

The Quick Mount Passive Portal lives up to its name! It is quick to install in any RFID system! This portal is designed to cover strategic congestion points such as conveyors and sorting machines in industrial environments such as loading docks. What makes it ideal is the portals ability to hit many separate tags at one time, creating unrivaled speed with only one Portal.

The Lisbon Airport used this portal along with RFID tags to significantly improve their sortation system.The Quick Mount Portal allowed the airport to automatically sort the baggage, decreasing the amount of lost baggage at the airport, and increased the capacity of luggage that could be sorted at one time.This specific portal was used because it can read an extremely high volume of tags, up to 900 at once. The ease of install and high-throughput are ideal for automatic sortation processes used in Airports.

MSRP for this portal is $ 3675.00. This portal comes with the passive readers, and antennas.

Zwipe: On-Card Biometric Authentication

zwipe12

The ZWIPE card employs an on-card fingerprint scanner which pre-authenticates the card holder before allowing the access control data to be sent. The user’s fingerprint scan is stored securely on the card so no biometric data needs to be stored on a local hardware device or server.

The Zwipe card communicates through ISO 14443 standards, making it widely compatible with existing contactless systems including Desfire EV1 and Mifare classic.

As all the biometric processing takes place on the credential itself, and is easily integrated into existing access control systems, the Zwipe card is an cost effective and simply way to deploy biometric security at any scale.

Invite The New Rio Pro UHF Printer to Your Next Party!

Print RFID Cards on the Fly for Easy Guest Management Applications

Imagine being involved in an event which hundreds of people are set to attend. You are one of the primary hosts and naturally you want to provide the best possible experience for each individual. But how, in an event of this magnitude, could you ever record who was there? You want to know how you can keep track and manage all these guests to ensure the event’s success and your ability to follow up with the guests afterwards. Now imagine these guests flowing in to your event in a chaotic pandemonium, each expecting it to be the best night of their lives. The challenge has begun, but with a little help from RFID, it turns out it is no challenge at all!

Some of the most helpful advances in the RFID field have been discovering the vast number of applications RFID can be used for. We are all familiar with RFID’s applications in inventory control, but how about applying it to “human inventory” management? In major events such as the one we described, the simplicity in keeping track of your guests is evolving rapidly.

With a simple combination of capable units you will be able to not only keep track of, but with the right software also follow up with your guests. All you need is a Rio Pro UHF Card printer, UHF ID Badges, some lanyards, and a CS-101 UHF handheld scanner. Magicard’s Rio Pro UHF Card printer gives you the ability to print and encode GEN 2 UHF ID badges that can be handed out to your guests on the spot. With the right software in place these cards can be registered with personal information (name and email address for example) and placed on lanyards for the guests to wear.

Now the only difficult part is choosing in what manner you would like to wield your handheld scanner(s). As an example, you could choose to scan each person as they enter the event, taking note of who physically attended. If your event consists of booths or information stations, having a scanner at each booth will allow you to tailor your follow up to individual guest’s interests. If you want to go all out, hire some photographers, give them Bluetooth enabled cameras and a CS-101 handheld scanner and have them photograph your guests, add your company’s logo, and upload the pictures via Bluetooth to each individual’s social media site of choice. And you thought we were joking when we said the opportunities were endless!

Now, are you too tired to follow up with your guests after all that event planning and execution? Good thing you tracked it all, now just make your software do the rest!

Check out the Rio Pro UHF Card Printer and Encoder, and the CS-101 UHF handheld scanner on our website www.ttsys.com. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our customer service department at customerservice@ttsy.com. We are excited to hear what new applications you are working on!
