Accu-Sort Matches Bar Code Data with RFID Data in High-speed Tracking Applications
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (October 22, 2004)--Accu-Sort Systems (ASI) today announced the first successful matching of RFID and bar code data in a sortation system.ASI has been piloting its high-speed sortation solutions with leading retailers. This month, ASI was successful in implementing a tracking solution that successfully matches bar code and RFID data. This allows a material handling system to increase its read performance by using both data points. The result is higher throughput through higher read rates.Existing bar code applications use a legacy system to transmit data to host systems. ASI RFID allows manufacturers to leverage that existing infrastructure to increase performance and manage costs."Associating bar code with RFID data is extremely important to companies who place high value on speed and throughput," said Troy Herman, ASI RFID solutions specialist. "Bar code data can help with RFID singulation, while RFID's non-line-of-site technology can increase system read rates."Considering the number of bar code systems in place, ASI's leveraged approach makes economic sense, Herman said. By using RFID in conjunction with legacy bar code systems, manufacturers can achieve greater performance without the addition of costly infrastructure.About Accu-SortAccu-Sort Systems is a pioneer in reliable auto ID and high-speed compliance solutions with more than three decades of experience deploying and supporting scanning and tracking solutions in distribution, warehousing, manufacturing and retailer environments. The company is also an established provider of convergent RFID and bar code systems with more than 40 RFID installations. 1-877-ASI-RFID or www.accusort.com.
