Cape Systems Group Inc. announced the release of Version 2.06 of its RFID Tag Locator software designed for RFID tag placement analysis and pallet-reading optimization.

This latest release of RFID Tag Locator incorporates a variety of new features and enhancements:
Document types and multiple document interfaces: the software now handles two basic file types, case data and pallet data. In conjunction with this change, the application now allows multiple documents to be viewed and edited at the same time. This allows cases and vials to be defined as standalone objects. These objects can then be added to a pallet or container to build a single SKU or mixed entity. By allowing pallet objects to be stored separately, multiple pallets can be defined containing one or more case or item.
Extension past a simple case-pallet system: The software is designed to model more than just cases and pallets, including items such as vials and containers. For this reason the software allows the definition of the base unit to be a box, cylinder or pyramid of any size, so that cases, vials and single items can be more closely modeled. Likewise, the use is not just confined with pallet building, mixed-item trays can also be built and modeled.
Image overlays: All single objects (cases, items, vials, etc.) can now have an optional image overlaid onto any or all of their faces. This allows product graphics to be shown in conjunction with tag locator data. This in turn proves to be very useful when considering the final location for tag placement.

Additional enhancements include:
? Mixed SKU pallets and containers: the new version fully supports mixed SKUs;
? Pallet visualization options: The pallet reading screens now offer a host of visualization options. To support this additional functionality, a new Pallet Reporting section has been added that allows printed reports to be generated;
? Support for Gen 2 tags;
? High frequency (13.56MHz) support
? Active tag support
? Metric or imperial selection.

CAPE is offering the RFID Tag Locator to end-users of RFID, resellers and to system integrators who include tag analysis as part of their revenue generating services.
