New Zebra Passive UHF Card with Unprecedented 50-Foot Read Range

Posted October 14, 2011

Zebra’s next-generation ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) Gen 2 RFID card is the first in the world to provide a read range of up to 50 feet or more (compared to just inches for standard RFID cards and Zebra’s first-generation UHF card’s 26-foot range).

Exciting Possibilities

Able to be read from afar even through badge holders, handbags, pockets and backpacks, the new UHF card creates new possibilities as it promotes efficiency and reliability in your long-range identification/access control, guest/visitor/asset tracking, and customer loyalty applications. And, ultimately, it maximizes safety, security and convenience for their employees, customers and guests—and enables guests to instantly share information with their social media contacts, enhancing the customer experience.

Improved Technology

Containing Zebra’s patent-pending antenna design and Impinj‘s state-of-the-art Monza® 4QT chip, Zebra’s passive RFID card provides advanced sensitivity for enhanced read rates and unprecedented read range. It also delivers full read/write capabilities, a magnetic stripe option, worldwide operability via any EPC UHF band (860-960 MHz), and a host of privacy-protecting and anti-card-cloning security features.

When combined with Zebra card printers with UHF (P330i™, P430i™) and CardStudio™ software, Zebra’s new UHF card provides a complete solution to create, encode and deploy a long-range Gen 2 solution.
