FEIG Electronics partner GlueLogix has created a video to demonstrate how easy it is to encode and verify RFID labels for inlay and card converters. GlueLogix has developed the Encode in Motion that can encode UHF and HF RFID chips in sequence without stopping, very fast. Here is video that showcases the GlueLogix’s Encode in Motion processing a test strip of UHF Gen2 inlays on pitch in eight seconds.
In the video, each inlay is having the entire EPC and the entire reserve bank encoded and then read back for comparison this is the PC display for that eight second run showing serial activity lights on the left history and status on the right side. Performance and monitor in the center the screen shows the data setup for the eight second run.
The system does have a read back function and a separate verify capability. GlueLogix uses the FEIG UHF reader in a configuration that returns the EPC and TID in one packet. So, on each good chip the end of the TID value is copied to the end of the EPC value. Also, on each code chip a constant pattern is written to the reserve bank. The first four bytes of each EPC are an ascending number corresponding to the number of gap sensor pulses. You can see that the numbers come out in order even though the writes on consecutive chips are executed far apart. The second number from the bottom is out of sequence meaning that the encode on that chip failed. If we were not working with a test strip that inlay would be marked bad at the end of the line. So watch along the video to see the Encode inMotion in action.
