STid introduces SPECTRE ATX – A new range of RFID readers for asset tracking in environments with explosion hazards

French RFID and mobile access specialist STid has introduced a new range of RFID readers that are ATEX compliant and that support longer read ranges: SPECTRE ATX. The global supplier of vehicle, people and asset identifcation solutions believes that SPECTRE ATX will enable clients to control and secure asset flows in environments with explosion hazards, like in the oil- and gas processing industry.

SPECTRE ATX is currently the only fixed UHF RFID reader line that holds ATEX and IECEx certification and that was purposely designed to meet industrial and logistics traceability challenges, specifically in explosive hazardous environments.

Examples of locations where these long range RFID readers could be installed:

  • At the entrances and exits of the site or zones within the plant,
  • At designated locations of conveyor systems,
  • At gates, transshipment points or other relevant locations.

The whereabout of assets and the status of production processes can now be monitored, even in the most sensitive sites, like refineries, petrochemical plants, mining sites, gas processing infrastructures and nuclear sites.

Products that are available in the STid ATEX portfolio:

  • SPECTRE ATX Reader
    Reader with 1 integrated antenna, designed for single-point readin.
  • SPECTRE ATX4 Reader
    Reader with up to 4 external antennas, designed for multi-point reading.
  • IronTag
    Industrial, robust UHF (RAIN RFID) Metal Tags
  • UHF Mobile Terminal
    To read UHF (RAIN RFID) tags at any location,
  • Prox or Multi-technology access control readers.

UHF technology, also called RAIN RFID, is a form of RFID that supports read ranges of up to several meters using passive tags (that do not have a battery).
