TAGSYS’ RFID infrastructure and Sirit’s UHF reader technology combine to deliver high-performance RFID systems
TAGSYS, the global leader in item-level RFID (Radio Frequency Identification”) infrastructure systems, today announced a technology partnership with Sirit Inc. (“Sirit”), a leading provider of RFID reader technologies. The combination of TAGSYS’ RFID systems and software with Sirit’s advanced UHF reader technology will enable customers to rapidly deploy and maintain a high performance, item-level UHF RFID infrastructure, thereby reducing engineering costs for a broader range of applications in a variety of industries.
Under the partnership, TAGSYS will release its RXU400 UHF fixed reader built upon Sirit’s performance-leading INfinity 510 platform. TAGSYS will incorporate the RXU400 into their Six Sigma capable tunnel systems as well as other application stations designed to meet specific customer requirements. As part of the agreement, Sirit will deliver a customized version of the IN510 that meets the unique requirements of TAGSYS and its customers.
Concurrently, Sirit will certify their INfinity 510 platform and the RXU400 for compatibility with e-connectware. TAGSYS’ robust software platform, e-connectware, remotely manages and optimizes RFID networks in real-time by enabling high-quality service levels and ensures data accuracy and data integrity in item-level tagging.
“Bringing together complementary technologies from TAGSYS and Sirit represents an important milestone in our ability to bring the best technology to our customers. This results in integrated, application-specific systems that exceed customer expectations”, according to Fred Kohout, Chief Marketing Officer, TAGSYS. “We performed extensive testing and evaluation of various readers, and Sirit’s INfinity 510 platform was clearly the type of product we want to deliver to our customers in terms of performance, reliability, and reader management capabilities.”
“We are pleased to reach the agreement with TAGSYS that leverages each company’s strengths and core competencies,” stated Tony Sabetti, Vice President, RF Solutions for Sirit. “TAGSYS’ products and powerful e-connectware software lead the way in RFID applications for several key markets–such as fashion and pharmaceuticals–and we look forward to further developing our relationship.”
TAGSYS will display the RXU400 and its UHF product family at Euroshop in Dusseldorf, Germany, from Feb 23 through Feb 27, 2008 (booth D11, Hall 7A). Sirit will also exhibit their products in booth D20, Hall 7A at Euroshop. The TAGSYS RXU400 will be available for shipment in Q2 of this year.
