TagMaster, a global leader in high performance long-range RFID solutions for automatic vehicle identification (AVI) and transportation and access control applications, launches the new reader system software release (SSW) 1.6.0, Ease of Use.
This new SSW is focused on providing an intuitive and standardised experience of the TagMaster reader. This introduction shows the TagMaster’s commitment to taking long range RFID solutions beyond the issue of read range and similar system limitations. This new software will add to the unique position of TagMaster’s Access family of RFID products designed to suit all access identification applications where TagMaster readers are being used.
The TagMaster GEN4 reader uses a Linux operating system providing a powerful platform for the reader applications. It also provides an open environment where partners using the TagMaster Software Development Kit (SDK) can develop their own reader applications. This has proven successful for many partners, making it possible to adopt the TagMaster RFID platform to the requirements in various market segments.
This new System Software contains a set of new functions as well as a new look-and-feel focused on simplicity and consistence built up using frames. All TagMaster applications will appear in the same way and will be available for configuration via web interface. It will now also be possible for partners developing their own applications to design their own web configuration layout.
Among other functions introduced in release 1.6.0, the built-in Spectrum scan is a useful tool during installations. Automatic configuration of all network parameters when a DHCP server is available simplifies installation when using TCP/IP communication. Security for the reader has been improved with password protection, and a specific web page has been designed for demonstration purposes to facilitate live demonstration of readers.
