TagMaster, the leading producer of advanced RFID solutions for long range identification in access control, asset tracking and rail applications, today announced that Omnitec Security Systems, a long term TagMaster partner based in Dubai, has been awarded the contract to deliver TagMaster’s new XT-3 UHF reader and ID-tags to a major port installation in the Gulf area. The contract covers the supply of 154 TagMaster XT-3 readers which will be used in the vehicle access control system for the port.
The project will use the TagMaster XT-3 RFID reader, which is an EPC Gen 2 (ISO 18000-6C) compliant UHF reader with built in antenna and full support for the TagMaster security concept, SecureMarkID®. SecureMarkID ensures each tag has a unique identity and prevents duplication of the EPC Gen 2 ID-tags. This together with other security features in the reader ensures a reliable, robust and secure installation for the port. The reader is also equipped with a unique configurable LED indicator at the front of the reader as well as on the front of an optional external antenna. The XT-3 reader is easy to configure using a password protected standard web browser. It’s also easy and quick to install with support for standardised mounting brackets. The XT-3 reader is characterised by the high quality and reliability associated with all TagMaster RFID products.
TagMaster’s RFID systems are already used in a number of successful port installations around the world. Vehicle access control is an important issue in ports, both from a security and logistical perspective. Long-range RFID is not only used as a secure way to automatically identify trucks and other vehicles driving in and out of the port, but also to control vehicle movement within the port area.
“Omnitec has been working with TagMaster’s long range RFID products for many years and has been very successful in securing a number of prestigious projects related to vehicle access control in the Gulf area. This new major port project is yet further proof of Omnitec’s capacity to secure high profile projects where TagMaster products have been key to the success,” says Wilfred Menezes, CEO, Omnitec Security Systems.
