Swedish company TagMaster, the leading producer of advanced RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) solutions for railway applications, and Confidex, the world’s leading supplier of high-performing RFID tag solutions, have come together to share knowledge in the field of RFID Tag technology. The emphasis will be on the UHF frequency band where the products will conform to the EPC Gen2 standard. Initially, a rugged heavy-duty ID-Tag will be introduced to meet the requirements of the railway industry which wants to use standardised EPC Gen2 ID-Tags in asset tracking applications. Under the arrangement, Confidex will manufacture the jointly specified RFID tag and TagMaster will market and sell the specified RFID tag to the Railway Transportation Industry. Both the companies will also explore future co-operation opportunities to develop or supply additional RFID tags or related technologies for use in other application areas and markets.
