Omron's New V740 RFID Reader/Writer Operates in Both UHF and HF FrequencIies
SCHAUMBURG, IL (June 30, 2004)—Omron Electronics LLC has developed a new RFID reader/writer compatible with both UHF (915 MHz) and HF (13.56 MHz) frequency bands. One model of the V740 offers 4 UHF ports and 2 HF ports, both multifrequency and multiprotocol with simultaneous actions. These enable the unit to communicate with tags using both EPC (Electronic Product Code) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards. The user can now interact with a wider range of tags, supporting the handling of goods on a global scale.

The new RFID reader/writer also uses TCIP/IP protocol for communicating, allowing it to be easily added to existing management networks.

The new V740 RFID reader/writer with UHF/HF capability is ideally suited to inventory and material handling applications in supply chains where RFID codes have begun to enhance bar codes for supply chain management. Large retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target Stores have mandated RFID coding of pallets and cases beginning in the first quarter of 2005.

The new Omron RFID UHF/HF reader/writer is expected to be available from stock in the first quarter of 2005, at a list price to be determined.
