A team of judges from industry, research, and academia recognized the company's fixed and mobile, multiprotocol readers and temperature tags for excellence in monitoring the condition of perishable foods and pharmaceuticals under a range of rigorous conditions and for providing actionable data to take corrective action.
The panel of judges recognized Intelleflex XC3 Technology™ multi-mode readers and tags for their innovative battery-assisted passive RFID technology, which equals or exceeds the performance of active RFID, while substantially reducing costs.
Intelleflex readers and tags support both the ISO/IEC 18000-6:2010 standard for Class 3 battery-assisted passive RFID, and the EPCglobal C1G2 standard for passive RFID. Intelleflex RFID readers and tags are also distinguished for their ability to reliably read and write in RF-unfriendly environments including metals, liquids, or with items in motion.
The company's products enable condition monitoring of individual products on loaded pallets or totes from a range of up to 300 feet and can penetrate packaging, allowing operators to make informed decisions on product shipment, inventory and rotation that can reduce shrink in perishable foods and guarantee efficacy of pharmaceuticals.
"Once again, we had many innovative new products on display at RFID Journal LIVE!, but Intelleflex rose above the rest with a solution that promises to deliver significant benefits to businesses and other organizations," said Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "With Intelleflex's temperature-monitoring RFID applications, growers, producers, shippers, warehousers and retailers can cost-effectively monitor and verify the freshness or efficacy of their products all the way from product origin through final destination. This will not only reduce waste and increase sales; it will improve food safety for consumers."
"We're honored to be selected the winner of the Best in Show award," said Peter Mehring, CEO of Intelleflex. "We appreciate the recognition by this distinguished group that Intelleflex XC3 Technology is an industry-leading solution, delivering strong value and a positive ROI for asset tracking and cold supply chain markets."
