Embedded Solution harmonizes automatic RFID systems.

Press Release Summary:

SmartInstrument is middleware that facilitates transparency in automatic Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems deployment, bringing commonality between various RFID protocols and hardware technologies despite age differences in technology being used. It interprets any RFID system utilizing any reader (active or passive), working on any frequency (LF/HF/VHF/UHF), with any communication protocol (Ethernet/WiFi/RS-232/485) and any transponder (active or passive).

A Novel Idea to Harmonize Automatic Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Systems

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 22 -- Reltronics Technologies, Inc. (RTI) announces wide availability of their novel embedded system, SmartInstrument, a versatile middleware for automatic Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems.

One of Reltronics Technologies' fortes is in creating and supporting RFID systems that assist in automating asset and inventory management, identifying drug pedigrees, etc. and which rely upon storage and remote retrieval of data using RFID hardware (Readers, Antennas, Tags or Transponders). Retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target have whole-heartedly accepted the RFID concepts to implement efficiencies in their workflow and to limit inventories in their warehouses and they have subsequently initiated mandates to their vendors to implement RFID technology in their supplies within set timelines. These mandates are allowing shorter timelines and the industry not only needs many new deployments but also sustain existing deployments.

SmartInstrument is a step forward to facilitate transparency in the RFID systems deployment thereby bringing commonality between various RFID protocols and hardware technologies (reader, antenna, and transponders or RFID tags), irrespective of the technology being new or old. For instance, SmartInstrument enables end-users to deploy new RFID systems while seamlessly supporting all existing RFID systems and eliminating the need for single- sourcing thereby achieving a better return of investment. It fills the need by interpreting any RFID system utilizing any reader (Active, Passive), working on any frequency (LF, HF, VHF, UHF), with any communication protocol (Ethernet, WiFi, RS-232, RS-485), any transponder (Active, Passive), and any standard (EPCGlobal, ISO, AIMGlobal) bringing the much needed commonality into the RFID infrastructure.

Reltronics Technologies' focus on bringing interoperability and sustainability into the RFID technology environment is the result of industry satisfaction with the RFID initiative, to enable overcoming the customer perception of which RFID technology to deploy, to enable commonality between the various RFID protocols, to enable a more cost-effective RFID system deployment, and finally to allow the end-users to start small with one RFID system and expand at their own financial pace without having to worry about the RFID system being antiquated.

Reltronics Technologies Inc., founded in 2002, while offering several products that support seamless integration of RFID technology also provides outsourcing, Six-Sigma Process Excellence and data management services.
