TagMaster, Swedish producer of advanced RFID solutions for railway applications, has received additional orders for the XT-3HD long-range RFID reader from Trafikverket (the Swedish Rail Administration), following successful field testing.
The RFID readers are to be installed as part of Trafikverket’s nationwide system for tracking railway goods wagons on the main Swedish rail network.
The XT-3HD long-range RFID reader is the heavy-duty model of TagMaster’s XT-series of UHF readers and is fully EPC Gen 2 (ISO 18000-6C) compliant and is certified to the meet the demanding requirements of the railway environment. For this application, axle counters have been interfaced directly to the XT-3HD for the detection of untagged wagons.
“We see this additional order not only as confirmation that the concept Trafikverket has selected is working well, but also that our RFID readers have met the tough requirements needed in the railway environment. We are very pleased to continue our co-operation with Trafikverket and we will continue to target this wagon tracking application in Europe and expect to see further interest from infrastructure owners and operations over the coming year”, says Richard Holt, Director of Transportation at TagMaster AB.
