|Idesco EPC reader complies with Australia's Radio communications Class License 2000 standard
Idesco’s EPC reader was recently selected for deployment in a vehicle identification application for a major Australian mining operation. The particular model had been modified to comply with Australia’s Radio communications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class License 2000 standard, with adjustments in bandwidths and broadcast power. The customer’s coal mining site required a robustly rugged system for identifying its very large mining vehicles. Idesco readily administered the required modifications to its EPC readers, enabling them to fill both EU and Australian standards, in addition to a variety of standards and regulations in other areas.
Idesco’s EPC products are notable for the greater distance at which they can interrogate passive tags. By operating in the UHF (Ultra High Frequency) range these readers are able to reliably read tags from distances of up to 15 meters, making them an excellent choice for a variety of vehicle and person identification as well as numerous logistics applications. Idesco EPC readers are robustly designed to reliably read a tag inside the windshield of a moving vehicle while deployed outdoors in the most inclement conditions. However, these are only some of the distinctive features of the product family. Some models possess anti-collision, an ability enabling them to detect several tags simultaneously and remember them. Another feature some models offer is the flexible expansion or shrinking of its detection zone by adjusting the reader’s broadcast power. A number of the models accommodate two antennas that effectively function as two separate readers, providing an ideal solution for applications detecting vehicles moving in opposite directions within a single detection zone.
