Reva Systems, a provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) network infrastructure, has made generally available a new model of its Tag Acquisition Processor (TAP). The Reva TAP 331 is an entry-level platform that is intended for facilities operating between one and eight RFID readers, encompassing as many as 32 read points per site. The TAP 331 and existing TAP 701 models are both fully compatible with Reva's Management Console (RMC) software, which allows companies to deploy RFID infrastructure across all facilities while maintaining a single management system for all RFID configuration and modeling. Reva TAPs are deployed at the facility level to control all RFID readers at each site, optimize reader performance, process collected tag data to determine accurate locations, and eliminate cross-reads. The TAP 331 is designed for small sites with no IT support, such as retail outlets, transportation and logistics-monitoring points, supplier shipping docks, branch offices, satellite processing centers and temporary operations. Each TAP 701 appliance, by contrast, supports up to 128 read points plus printers, general purpose input/output (GPIO) devices and other sensors.
