The wireless computer’s RFID reader firmware has been upgraded so that customers can now meet retailer requests for 96-bit tag support. In addition, new software will enable customers to upgrade the MX3-RFID to the EPC Gen2 UHF specification, thus “future proofing” their MX3-RFID investments.
LXE has added the option for customers to translate reader output in either HEX format or EPC Tag Data Standard format. With the EPC Tag Data Standard option, operators will be able to see, on the MX3-RFID’s screen, tag/product details, which will significantly simplify the exception handling and verification process. Supported formats include SGTIN-64, SGTIN-96, SSCC-64 and SSCC-96.
LXE has added the capability for customers to specify masks and filters when reading tags, providing operators the means to quickly find specific cases on a fully loaded pallet that meet the “filter” criteria entered into the unit. This ability to quickly find specific tags/cases will be particularly useful for product tracking and recalls.
“This latest round of upgrades follows a RFID product development roadmap developed from hundreds of customer interviews - from the boardroom to the work floor,” says Peter Fausel, LXE senior vice president of Sales and Marketing. “Each upgrade enables our customers to take RFID deeper into their warehouses, where they’ll be able to find the positive returns they’ve been looking for on their RFID investments.”
