Psion Teklogix has unveiled its RFID Development Kit that enables North American customers to deploy RFID technology into their operations. This RFID solution is EPC-compliant to address the guidelines set out by Wal-Mart and the Department of Defence (DoD) though it can also be valuable for customers deploying non-EPC closed-loop RFID systems. Compatible with EPC Class 0, 0+ and 1, the RFID Development Kit has been designed to adapt to evolving RFID technology and integrate into a customer's existing enterprise management software to maximize their RFID investment. The Psion Teklogix RFID Development Kit solution is available now in North America.
The RFID Development Kit includes: four Psion Teklogix multi-protocol Mobile UHF RFID Readers, a fixed RFID Reader station for one dock door, Psion Teklogix EPC RFID Middleware, an RFID printer and encoder, as well as comprehensive professional services. These professional services include the project management, software development, hardware installation and technical consulting required to deliver a fully functional RFID-enabled system for one dock door and the four Mobile UHF RFID Readers.
Psion Teklogix' EPC RFID Middleware is a web-based software solution that consists of three modules - Object Manager, Aggregation Manager and Portal Manager. These modules help customers collect, filter, and reconcile RFID data with other enterprise management systems. The Object Manager transmits information to external printers, managing serial number requirements and encoding RFID tags - allowing customers to save on outsourcing costs. The Aggregation Manager collects information associated with products that are loaded on to pallets within the warehouse. The Portal Manager monitors warehouse bays and portal readers and manages the settings for all RFID devices throughout a facility. This web-based solution is vendor agnostic, allowing customers to use RFID devices developed by other manufacturers while still leveraging the Psion Teklogix RFID Development Kit in their environment.
