The UPM Raflatac freezer-proof RFID tags are designed to operate reliably within freezer environments down to -40 °C.
The RFH620 RFID system is designed to be a solution for intralogistics, with an integrated antenna, high transmission rates in the 13.56 MHz frequency range, and openness for differing fieldbus environments and IT structures.
The Harting Ha-VIS RFID system is designed to simplify the implementation of RFID projects. The Ha-VIS RFID system features readers that perform key functions out of the box.
The BL ident RFID product portfolio has been expanded with the release of a simple RFID (RFID-S) slice for its BL20 modular I/O system. Each RFID-S slice contains two channels of RFID. Additional RFID slices, as well as traditional discrete and analog I/O slices, may be added to the system, making it the only product on the market that allows this combination on the same node on the network, according to Turck.

The adoption of RFID continues to gather momentum, and hardware and software spending will accelerate in late 2006 and 2007 as true benefits are documented, according to Gartner, Inc.
We have finally arrived at the commoditisation of both RFID readers and tags. The introduction of sub-US$1000 readers this year has halved prices from just 12 months ago, while US$0.15 passive tags in large quantities are not uncommon
Radio Frequency Identification system (RFID) is used for automatic data capture allowing for contact-free identification of goods using RF to replace barcode labelling. It enables the user to follow the path of product without interruption from the manufacturer all the way to the store shelves. The HUBER+SUHNER antenna product line focuses on UHF RFID.
Omron Corporation, the US$5.5 billion Japanese manufacturer of automation and sensing products, has revealed more specific plans related to the November 2005 announcement of a US$20 million worldwide investment in the RFID business over a two-year period. The company announced that RFID inlay manufacturing capacity will be increased to support production of more than 250 million inlays per year at its Minakuchi factory in Shiga, Japan.
