RFID WORLD 2006: IDENTEC SOLUTIONS Introduces i CARD CF World’s first RFID reader in compact flash format with 300-foot read range

Lustenau, AUSTRIA and Kelowna BC, CANADA, February 13, 2006 — IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, a leading global supplier of long-range RFID-based solutions, introduces its new reader at the RFID World in Dallas, TX, Feb. 27- March 1, 2006 (Booth no.1411). The i CARD CF is the world’s first RFID read/write device in compact flash format that can attain ranges of up to 100 meters (300 feet).

As mobile electronic devices become smaller, the size of mobile RFID readers must be adjusted accordingly. For this reason, IDENTEC SOLUTIONS has transferred its proven i CARD reader technology to a compact flash format, without compromising the read range. This range remains at up to 100 meters (300 feet) thanks to innovative active UHF radio frequency technology. The i CARD CF is compatible with IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ Intelligent Long Range i Q and i B tags and can easily be integrated into laptops, handhelds and other mobile devices via its CF card connector. As a result, users of these mobile devices can also achieve real-time information about their assets over large distances.

During communication with IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ i Q or i B tags, the i CARD CF allows for quick identification of up to 100 tags per second, even when these are moving rapidly. A special anti collision algorithm allows up to 2000 tags in a read zone to be read concurrently.

“The i CARD CF unites two factors that are becoming more and more important in identifying, tracking and locating assets: mobility and range,” explains Roderick O’Keefe, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at IDENTEC SOLUTIONS. “We are very proud that we are marketing the world’s first mobile 100-meter RFID read/write device in compact flash format. With the i CARD CF, our customers will be able to deploy more modern and smaller handhelds, without having to sacrifice excellent read range”.
