Master 01 upgraded with smart mode



The most awarded Polish RFID tool, Master 01, grows stronger with another innovation from Smart Technology Group. Learn more about smart mode.

Up to now, RFID reader Master 01 could work in three modes: polling, automatic and autonomous. Reader?s capabilities are also heavily influenced by 4 relay outputs. They allow for direct steering of bar or electric lock. The authorization is based on earlier created group of identifications. It has been a true novelty to use relay outputs in RFID UHF reader. The lack of similar solution in competitors? products is a meaningful fact.

Now Master 01 has a new mode ? smart mode. It makes reader capable to recognize its own tags, regardless of their EPC or TID. ?For user, the important thing is that such process is run in reader itself, in low layer. As a result, there is no need to create database and logically, EPC or TID can have any value? ? engineer Maciej Sliwinski, the smart mode creator, explains the way how it works. Another smart mode advantage is its scalability: the number of identified tags (10, 100 or 1 000 000 000) does not influence new feature functionality at all. Master 01 will still work flawlessly.

New mode will increase security level, too. It makes the authentication of tag which EPC or TID number has been copied to gain illegal access (e.g. to car park) impossible. Apart from car park, newly introduced mode will be welcomed also by retail. If someone tries to purposely change EPC number of any item, smart mode will inform cashier that tag which has just been scanned, does not belong to tags created for this particular shop.


?The never-ending need to introduce more and more innovations as well as improving already existing solutions is completely natural for Smart Techology Group team? ? says PhD. Eng. Karolina Kozlowska, CEO. ?This is the need that allowed us to combine RFID technology with other wireless technologies such as WLAN, Bluetooth, GPRS and ZigBee? ? she reminds. The result of such pro-innovation approach is impressive collection of awards won by SMART RFID brand. In 2015 only there were 5 of them, e.g. The Leader of New Technologies, Innovation Laurel, Retail Innovations or Good Design.
