Advanced RFID Memory Windshield Inlay Launched by KSW Microtec
Abu Dhabi, February 25, 2008 - KSW Microtec AG, one of the world's leading suppliers of RFID components, has launched the KSW windshield inlay offering customers more accurate, efficient and secure vehicle access into various locations and premises.
With a read range of approximately 18 feet and a larger memory chip, the inlay can benefit both commercial fleet operators of cars or trucks, as well as private vehicle owners requiring secure access and safer parking. As it has higher individual data storage capacities on the chip, the inlay is ideal for managing access to corporate parking lots, high security commercial and industrial areas or gated residential communities. It can also be used to control entry and exit gates to automotive services such as toll stations, car rental parks or car washes.
Thomas Hitzer, CEO of KSW Microtec said this latest RFID inlay, with its unique features, sets new standards in the market of vehicle ID.
"Due to the customized antenna design and an efficient assembly technology, the RFID inlay from KSW does not require a foam standoff like other windshield tag designs and this is a unique feature of our product," he added.
KSW developed the inlay following demand from customers requiring more chip memory space for individual data, using the Gen2 chip with its increased 512-bit user memory. Gen2 chip technology allows for multiple tag reads, faster read rates and greater range for tracking entrances, exits and traffic patterns within closed environments. Consequently, the windshield inlay was designed especially for this chip.
In addition, as the KSW label uses passive RFID technology, it offers a more economic option than active windshield tags currently available on the market.
