Enable IPC Introduces S/Cap RFID Tags: Longer Read Range, Rugged Tags for Multiple Applications

 

SAUGUS, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Enable IPC Corporation (EIPC) is proud to introduce the S/Cap RFID Tag to the RFID community. The tags are now in production and available for purchase.

"This product launch represents the beginning of what we believe will be a string of products designed to address some glaring needs in the asset tracking market," said David Walker, CEO of Enable IPC Corporation. "Our experience in some of the latest power technologies, such as nanoparticle-enhanced ultracapacitors, combined with the expertise of two long-established RFID companies, has resulted in these tags, which are a game-changing answer to the limitations inherent in passive RFID systems."

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags are used in dozens of applications, and the market for RFID systems has been estimated by a third party market researcher at nearly $6 billion and growing. They are used in applications as diverse as toll booths, livestock, department stores, oil rigs, warehouses, the military and much more.

RFID tags are devices that transmit data over radio frequencies. Most RFID tags are passive; that is, they use no power source and can be read from a limited distance. Tag manufacturers may sometimes use a battery to provide a boost of power that enhances the read range.

The Enable IPC S/Cap RFID Tag is very unique in that is does not use a battery to enhance the read range; rather, it uses an ultracapacitor. The advantage here is that ultracapacitors can outlast a battery by as much as 1000 times. In addition, the S/Cap RFID Tag utilizes a solar light panel to keep the ultracapacitor charged -- which Daniel Finch, President of Advanced ID (an RFID solutions company) called, "a very unique and brilliant solution to the issues of tag life, durability and read range."

Most competitive tags have read ranges of anywhere from 3 to 45 feet. The S/Cap RFID Tag range is as much as 75 feet.

In addition, a typical tag is covered by limited warranties of 90 days to 1 year. The S/Cap RFID Tag is covered by a 7 year limited warranty.

"This product represents nothing short of a revolution in RFID," said Jerry Ryu, CEO and President of RFID manufacturer RFcamp, Ltd. "The applications this tag can address are plentiful, and we expect that Enable IPC Corporation will see great success with this product. We congratulate them."

Market Opportunities

The general market metrics are very impressive. The total market for RFID systems is expected to be nearly $6 billion in 2011, and the asset tracking portion of that market will constitute a sizable percentage of the total. The relevant market sectors for S/Cap RFID Tags are expected to eventually include oil rigs, livestock, transportation, pallet tracking, sports, equipment tracking, forestry identification processes, aerospace, DoD compliance (still the biggest user of RFID) and much more.

Value Proposition

Protecting assets means more than just ensuring no one walks away with a piece of equipment. An oft-cited 2007 report published by McAfee and Datamonitor estimates that an average laptop, which might cost $1,000, holds data worth $972,000, and could store as much as $8.8 million in commercially sensitive information and intellectual property.

Also, the internal costs -- in time, productivity and cash -- of physically trying to track a misplaced asset or locating and purchasing a needed replacement due to loss or theft can be enormous.

The value to customers -- the savings involved in installing a tracking system for major assets -- is tremendous. This is one of the reasons the market niche is so large and is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 14% over the next 5 years.
