Tacoma, WA | February 16 2011 - TagMaster North America, the leading provider of advanced RFID solutions for access control and rail applications launched the new XT series readers and ID-tags addressing the EPC Gen 2 specification during 2010. The XT-series of readers and ID-tags has been well received in the European market with a number of successful projects.

This new reader family and ID-tags extends the TagMaster NA product portfolio with support for the ISO 18000-6 type C standard, called EPC Gen 2, providing with automatic identification at up to 15 feet. It is a suitable product solution in high volume ID-tag Vehicle Access installations.

The XT-2us is designed for the North American regulations in terms of frequency range and output power. The XT reader family is equipped with the same Linux operating system thus supporting the same software applications used in the market leading LR series of readers from TagMaster. These applications will now be available in the XT series providing with an extensive set of functionality and interfaces. This makes integration to management systems and other equipment quick and easy.

New ID-tags added to the TagMaster product range
The readers provide together with TagMaster EPC Gen 2 ID-tags a read range of up to 15 feet. The passive ID-tags support both standard EPC Gen 2 tags as well as the TagMaster ‘SecureMarkID’. The SecureMarkID protection ensures uniqueness and prevents duplication of a tag identity.

The XT readers and ID-tags will complement the TagMaster product portfolio. The LR-series of readers using 2.45 GHz technology is well recognized as market leading with installations all over the world, in all climate conditions, working in all types of demanding applications.
