Magellan Technology announced the release of a full range of Phase Jitter Modulation (PJM) RFID products targeted for document control applications.
Here’s a glimpse of its most important characteristics, according to Magellan:
- Magellan’s PJM StackTag technology complies with the international standard ISO/IEC 18000-3 Mode 2.
- It has the ability to communicate with RFID tags even when they are stacked without any separation.
- This attribute enables the reliable tracking of original documents, including single page documents, on desks, in folders, on shelves, or in archive boxes.
Magellan Technology’s New PJM RFID Products Enable Reliable Tracking Of Original Documents
Magellan Technology announced the release of a full range of Phase Jitter Modulation (PJM) RFID products targeted for document control applications. Only Magellan’s PJM StackTag technology, which complies with the international standard ISO/IEC 18000-3 Mode 2, has the ability to communicate with RFID tags even when they are stacked without any separation. This unique attribute enables the reliable tracking of original documents, including single page documents, on desks, in folders, on shelves, or in archive boxes.
Keeping track of original documents once they are signed and kept as evidence is important due to legal and auditing purposes. This is especially vital at law firms, financial institutions, hospitals, government offices, and pharmaceutical companies, as well as educational institutions for tracking documents such as original exam papers. Original documents often travel from department to department, and as they are handled by more and more people, the likelihood of their being misplaced or lost increases dramatically.
Only Magellan’s unique PJM StackTag technology can effectively communicate with hundreds of tightly stacked tags that have virtually no separation, like RFID tags on single page documents. Today all other RFID tags stop working when they are next to each other and could not be reliably used for document tracking. The PJM anti-collision protocol allows users to reliably manage more than 16,000 tagged items, pages or files, per reader at identification speeds of 700 tags per second.
“There is a growing worldwide requirement for a technology to efficiently locate and track important, original and signed documents for legal or auditing purposes,” said Bodo Ischebeck, Chief Executive Officer of Magellan Technology. “Today only PJM’s unique StackTag RFID technology is able to reliably monitor and track thousands of documents throughout the office and archive environment even when single page documents are tightly stacked.”
Magellan offers a wide range of document control specific PJM StackTag labels and dedicated reader products. The MDOCR-2505 Document Tray reader is a full PJM RFID reader in a typical office in/out tray form factor. It will read up to 100 tightly stacked RFID-tagged documents within the tray. Most folders and documents are kept in cabinets or on shelves for storage and access. Various filing cabinets and bookshelves are used, and these can all be fitted with Magellan MARS readers and bookshelf antennas to enable the constant monitoring of all tagged documents and folders. The MARS-24 reader can operate up to 24 single or 12 bookshelf antennas which are used to locate documents and folders on individual shelves of a document cabinet. Such a configuration allows up to 100,000 documents to be managed and monitored remotely with a single reader. The PJM RFID-based Document Management System dramatically speeds up the process of archiving documents. With Magellan’s MSTRP-5050, a high performance 3-D tunnel reader, archive boxes containing more than 10,000 RFID-tagged documents can be reliably identified and processed in only a few seconds. Magellan RFID readers contain a full embedded RFID Operating System and can be directly connected to the IT network using Ethernet or USB. All products are in mass production, ROHS-compliant and fully certified for CSA/UL, FCC, CE, Australia and Canada.
PJM RFID products are currently being used in document control applications in Europe, Asia and Japan. A dedicated video clip is available on the Magellan website that demonstrates the use of PJM RFID products for document control applications.
About Magellan Technology
Magellan Technology Pty. Ltd., Sydney, Australia, is a technology developer; manufacturer and licensor of advanced read and write 13.56MHz RFID systems. Magellan designs and offers RFID chips, inlets, and a complete reader portfolio for Magellan’s Phase Jitter Modulation (PJM) technology, which complies with the International Standard ISO/IEC 18000 Part 3 Mode 2. The PJM technology is more than 10 times faster than other existing HF technologies. PJM StackTag® is unique in its capability to identify, read and write RFID tags even when they are deeply stacked together. PJM products are optimized for applications where many hundreds of tags are stacked tightly or need to be identified reliably in fast moving dynamic situations where tags are presented in all orientations. Magellan licenses its PJM technology world wide and welcomes enquiries from interested parties including other manufacturers and system integrators.
