Canadian RFID vendor inks deal in Australia

A Burlington, Ont.-based RFID vendor has announced plans to bring dual frequency RFID tags to Australia and New Zealand.

IPICO Inc., which designs radio-frequency identification chipsets, inlets, tags readers and middleware, has teamed up with packaging firm CHEP Australia Ltd. to develop IPICO’s RFID chips in CHEP’s packaging products. CHEP’s services include collecting and recycling pallets and other shipping equipment.

Dual frequency chips are typically used in environments where tags will be in close proximity to radio frequency absorbent materials such as people, animals, vegetation, soil or fluids.

IPICO said its RFID tags have the capability to function in the most extreme conditions, which is a necessity in Oceanic region. The company said its tags have achieved a 100 per cent read rate in demanding environments of high moisture content and metal.
