TagMaster presents the new XT series UHF reader and ID-tags at Intertraffic

Stockholm, Sweden, 22 March 2010 - TagMaster, the leading producer of advanced RFID solutions for access control and rail applications presents the new XT series readers and ID-tags addressing the EPC Gen 2 specification at the international trade show Intertraffic in Amsterdam. This reader family together with ID-tags is designed for typical installations in application areas such as Parking, Gated communities, Condominiums as well as People access.

This new reader family and ID-tags extends the TagMaster product portfolio with support for the ISO 18000-6 type C standard (also referred to as EPC Gen 2), providing automatic identification of ID-tags at up to 5 meters. The XT series is particularly suitable for installations involving a high volume of ID-tags, such as in Vehicle Access and Parking applications.

Two new members of the TagMaster reader family
TagMaster is initially introducing the XT-2eu and XT-2us to its UHF series. The XT-2eu is designed to comply with the European regulations for ISO18000-6 type C, while the XT-2us is designed for the North American regulations, in terms of frequency range and output power. Both readers are characterised by the high-quality and reliability associated with TagMaster’s RFID products.

The XT reader family is equipped with the same Linux operating system thus supporting the same reader software applications used in the market leading LR series of readers from TagMaster. These applications will now be available in the XT series providing extensive functionality and communication options. This makes integrating the XT series to management systems and other equipment both quick and easy.

New ID-tags added to the TagMaster product range
TagMaster has added a new range of passive UHF ID-tags which fully support EPC Gen 2 standard. TagMaster will offer both standard EPC Gen 2 ID-tags as well as TagMaster’s ‘Secure MarkID’ format, which is an EPC Gen 2 compliant ID-tag which provides added security in terms of a unique identity which cannot be duplicated. Together with EPC Gen 2 ID-tags supplied by TagMaster, the XT series readers provide a read range of up to 5 meters.

The XT readers and ID-tags will complement TagMaster’s existing product portfolio. The LR-series of readers using 2.45 GHz technology is well recognised as market leading, with installations all over the world, in all climate conditions and working in all types of demanding applications. The XT series meets the high demands for reliability and functionality set by TagMaster’s global network of partners.
