PowerID, the industry leader in battery-assisted, passive (BAP) RFID technology, announced that in benchmark testing undertaken by IndustryWizards.com, PowerID's BAP labels demonstrated superior performance over other RFID labels.
The benchmark tests, which took place at RFID Global Solution's RFID laboratory (www.rfidgs.com) and on-site in a retail distribution center, were carried out with an Impinj Speedway stationary reader and a CSL handheld reader. In free space testing with the Impinj reader, PowerG and PowerM BAP Gen2 RFID labels were read from distances of 157 and 153 feet; with the CSL handheld, PowerG and PowerM were read nearly 50 feet away. Full test results and a video of the testing are available at www.rfid.net
"The benchmarking should demonstrate to the industry how RFID technology continues to evolve," said Louis Sirico, President and CEO of IndustryWizards.com "Given the performance results we achieved, we can honestly say that PowerID has created the most powerful RFID labels we've seen, performing 5-6 times better than the traditional passive labels we tested with the same equipment configuration."
The key to BAP's performance lies with PowerID's flexible battery technology, which enables readability in difficult environments while boosting the read range of the labels.
PowerID's label families are designed for applications that include metals and liquids, such as logistics, people tracking, race timing, and paper reel tracking. PowerG is designed for general logistics; PowerM for logistics involving metals; PowerP for people tracking; PowerT for tracking runners; and PowerR for tracking paper reels.
"The benchmark testing by independent IndustryWizards.com and RFIDGS is a testimony to the performance advantages of our BAP technology," said Erez Kahani , PowerID's CEO. "Since releasing our Gen 2 labels one year ago, we have closed a number of sizable deals as the market has come to recognize the value of our labels; I am confident that we will continue to expand our customer base in the coming year as well."
