HID Global, a global provider of system integrators and application developers serving a wide range of markets, has declared its expansion in the North American Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) market and David Chose as its North American Sales Manager.
According to Marie-Francoise Glotz, Vice president of Industry and Logistics at HID Global, new portfolio additions include RFID tags whose end-use segments include asset-tracking, process automation, waste management and location of returnable transport items, laundry, livestock and pets. Self Resonance Frequency (SRF) from 860 to 960 MHz is one of the solutions recently added to the product portfolio of RFID tags, which exactly corresponds with the frequency requirement of North America. The latest products based on this feature include Electronic Product Code Global (EPCglobal) Class 1 Gen 2 (Ultra High Frequency) UHF On Metal RTI Transponder (Returnable Transport Item) solution that permits a read range of 7 meters without any compromise in performance and the inline 120/52UHFtag model is hardy and incorporates dimension to implementation ratio with a rapid and precise container identification within a range of 6 m.
All HID Global RFID tags include read-write facility in the memory of the device so that data stored can be easily updated and read which can potentially enhance the quality of business by means of tracking or quality control.
IDTechEx, a research firm reports that the RFID market value in 2009 for tags, readers and software/services for RFID cards, fobs and other form factors was $5.03 billion and it is expected to reach $5.63 billion during 2010.
