Omron RFID this week announced a second-generation RFID tag that can be read in all UHF RFID frequency spectrums around the globe.
The company’s V750 Series Gen 2 wave tags, comply with international standards for UHF RFID communication bands, which are between 860 MHz and 960 MHz, Omron said.
According to OMRON RFID Chief Strategist Bill Arnold, Acceptable read/write performance has only been possible through the use of a different tag design optimized for each regional frequency band, said chief strategist Bill Arnold, in a statement.
Demand is growing for a single RFID tag that can perform in all UHF RFID frequencies. RFID-fueled global commerce will benefit because product manufacturers can choose just one tag design for use around the world, he said.
The Schaumburg, Illinois-based company, which is owned by Japanese automation giant Omron Corp, said it would display its new tags at the AudioID Expo in Japan later this week and at RFID World in Dallas later in the month.
