TagMaster NA’s Northernmost Installation Withstands the Cold

TagMaster RFID access control solution installed at Yellowknife Airport in the Northwest Territories, the busiest airport in northern Canada.

TACOMA, Wa. | March 15, 2012 — TagMaster North America, Inc.,
the leading provider of long-range and high-performance Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) systems for Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI), products were installed at Yellowknife Airport (YZF) for efficient, hands-free shuttle and maintenance vehicle access. Integrated with the RFID solution are the ACTS Essential access control system and Magnetic barriers.

ACTS (Access Control Tracking System) Essential, powered by ArmID, is an embedded access control software that allows the customer to add vehicles and activate tags, deactivate lost or stolen tags, open gates remotely, manage access schedules, and generate reports, all from a web-enabled, easy-to-use interface using any standard web browser.

The Yellowknife Airport, located approximately 250 miles south of the Arctic Circle, required a system that worked reliably in cold weather. The TagMaster system, provided by Trafco Canada, allows repeat airport customers driving shuttles hands-free access and automatic entry to pickup lanes. Shuttle drivers are now able to attend to their customers quickly and efficiently, without having to manage paper tickets for a revenue system.

“The robust TagMaster products, along with the superior customer service provided by TagMaster North America, make this one of the best long-range access control solutions on the market today,” said Trafco Sales Manager, Kevin Shoults. “You set it up and it works, rain or shine, or in Yellowknife’s case, cold or colder.”
Trafco completed installation in the summer of 2011 and the system has worked flawlessly in the frigid northern Canada climate which averages -27° F (-33° C) in January and has seen record lows of -71° F (-57.2° C).
