Omni-ID Flex LP On-Metal Thin Tag

TransTech Systems recently had a chance to review the Omni-ID Flex LP and AI on-metal tags. Their thin form factor, printable surface and on-metal performance were all impressive for this class of tag. Able to be read up to 5 meters on-metal along with a strong off-metal read yeild make this tag a good choice for any mixed item application.

Personalized Kiosk Experience Powered by ThingMagic RFID

At RFID Journal LIVE! in 2011, attendees got a firsthand look at how RFID can be integrated with social media with Facebook “Check-in” and “Like and photo” kiosks developed by ODIN in partnership with ThingMagic.

The kiosks, powered by the USB Plus+ RFID Reader, allowed attendees to directly post to their personal Facebook pages with us the scan of an RFID ID badge.

Check-in Kiosk large Photo and Like Kiosk large

Here is an excerpt from ThingMagic’s case study on the project:

 “Attendee interaction with the kiosks was fully automated through the use of RFID badges, which were distributed upon registration and used for other event purposes including personalized communication via smart signs and conference session attendance monitoring. Attendees received an email in advance of the show and, in less than 30 seconds, could connect their RFID badge information with their Facebook account. There were also on-site registration kiosks for late registrants. By waving their conference badges in front of a kiosk screen – outfitted with ThingMagic’s UHF USB RFID Readers used in conjunction with ODIN’s EasyConnect Software – conference attendees were able to connect with and update their Facebook accounts in real time, successfully merging their real-world and online communities.”

The ThingMagic USB Plus+ is ideally suited to this sort of application, as it is comprised of the Mercury5e Compact reader and a high performance antenna enclosed in a small ruggedized case, which uses a single USB cable for power and data transmission.

ThingMagic USB Plus+

These kiosks are a perfect example of how this easy to use, all-in-one RFID reader/writer can be put to use connecting companies with consumers, and vice versa.  Similar uses can be seen across multiple channels:  Events and attendance tracking, personalized check-in for hospitality and gaming, loyalty and rewards, interactive stations for entertainment/museums, or any number of situations where kiosks can be utilized.  RFID enables a quick, simple and fast way for self service kiosk manufacturers to engage with users in a personalized direct way.

Read and Write RFID Tags over USB with ThingMagic’s USB Plus+ Reader

The USB Plus+ RFID reader from ThingMagic is unique in that it is powered over USB, needing only a PC or laptop to read and write tags.  This makes the USB Plus+ a perfect fit for single tag issuance or reads at a desk, standalone kiosk installations, or other autonomous applications.

ThingMagic USB Plus+

This small, sturdy reader measures in at approximately 4″ x 2.5″ x 1″, and features a high impact plastic case.  Powered by ThingMagic’s tiny Mercury 5e-Compact RFID reader (pictured below,) the USB Plus+ reads and writes of EPC Global Gen2 tags, has a software-adjustable read distance of up to 3 feet, and can read up to 200 tags/second.

The high performance internal antenna is ideal for both high memory tags and small sized tags.  One Type-A USB plug provides power and signal, the other provides additional power if needed.

A development kit is also available, containing the USB reader with integrated antenna and interface cable, sample tags and instructions for obtaining the SDK/API.  As with all ThingMagic readers, it is compatible with the Universal Reader Assistant.

New Speedway Revolution Readers

TransTech Partner Impinj has announced a revision to further improve the powerful versatile Speedway Revolution series of UHF RFID readers. The new Speedway readers double processor speed to 400MHz and quadruple Flash memory to 32MB to allow for more robust and faster throughput of on-reader applications. The reader’s kernel also adds support for IPv6 which will be a major component requirement for networked devices in the near future. Even with these major updates, the new Speedway readers will still support the Octane 5.2.x firmware and SDK so all current reader applications will transition seamlessly. Best of all, pricing on all models will remain the same, with added features and functionality at the same price point, Impinj once again provides superior value to RFID integrators, developers, and users.

These updates will apply to both the 4-port R420 and 2-port R220 readers using a new SKU convention. The updated readers are available now, old series readers will be available through February 28th.
