PervasID, UK-based RFID technology company, has launched a ‘next generation’ flat ceiling tile antenna reader system that will allow retailers to see the stock that they have throughout a store or building in real time.
Space Ranger™ 9200 delivers the world’s first near-100 per cent accurate wide-area passive RFID detection in real time. It resolves the issues of areas of low RF transmission where tags can easily be missed. It uses a network of low profile flat ceiling tile antennas, located discreetly at intervals across the shop floor; thus, reducing the required number antennas needed by a staggering 75 per cent as well as reducing the coaxial cabling requirement by 50 per cent. It reduces costs, requires less space and simplifies installation.

It may be mentioned here that the solution is currently in trial with a number of leading retailers and has a target to deliver an ROI of less than 12 months.
Sabesan Sithamparanathan, CEO, PervasID said, “Historically the adoption of RFID has not met industry expectation due to low detection rates combined with prohibitively high costs of reader system and deployment,” further adding, “Most overhead RFID readers, can read tags within a zone, but with less accuracy (typically only 80 per cent) compared with the Space Ranger™ at nearly 100 per cent.”
