TagMaster Supplies Equipment to High-speed Metro in India
Stockholm, Sweden, 8th October 2009 - TagMaster, the leading producer of advanced RFID solutions for rail applications, has supplied RFID equipment to Delhi Airport Metro Express in India. SIMEC, TagMaster’s distributor in Spain and Portugal, has supplied the RFID system to a Spanish train manufacturer, who is delivering the trains to India. In this project, the TagMaster HD Readers will be mounted onboard the trains and provide signals to the onboard system which controls the power switching functions on the train at key points along the line. The new 22.7 km of high speed metro rail line will connect New Delhi Railway Station and New Delhi International Airport. “This is our first installation of Transportation products in India and an important step in our ambitions for the Indian market. We have a number of ongoing discussions with system integrators in India and we believe this strategic project in Delhi will be one of many more to come.” says Richard Holt, Director Transportation at TagMaster AB. "For many years, SIMEC has been supplying both Access and Transportation business with solutions based on TagMaster’s high frequency RFID system. This highly skilled, long-term partner based in Spain has now enabled TagMaster to win a prestige project in India. I believe this is an excellent example of the strength of TagMaster’s global, well-established partner network.” says Christopher Grahn, President & CEO, TagMaster AB.
