Stockholm, Sweden, 14 March 2011 - TagMaster, the leading producer of advanced RFID solutions for Automatic Vehicle Identification together with SKIDATA, a global leader in access solutions and their efficient management, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) where both companies have agreed to cooperate in the field of supplying integrated long range UHF RFID solutions. This integration will support the SKIDATA Keytag to be read by TagMaster XT-readers designed for installations in Parking.

TagMaster products are being used since many years in many installations all around the world where SKIDATA parking management equipment is used. Furthermore the new interface will provide with a smooth and reliable integration between the RFID reader and the parking management system.

TagMaster reliable long range RFID readers are divided into the XT- series designed for the UHF frequency range and the well known LR-series working in the license free 2.45 GHz frequency band. Both product families use the same powerful LINUX based future proof platform thus making the now implemented integration available in both product families with frequency hopping and an intuitive web configuration. The integration between TagMaster readers and the SKIDATA management equipment supports SKIDATA’s hands-free keymotion parking.

“In signing this MoU together with SKIDATA, TagMaster presents a powerful and reliable long range RFID solution easily integrated with SKIDATA contactless solutions for parking,” says Bo Tiderman, CEO at TagMaster AB.
