Symmetry Electronics Signs Distribution Agreement With CAEN RFID

HAWTHORNE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2013) - Symmetry Electronics has announced, effective immediately, it will begin to globally distribute UHF RFID products from Italian RFID specialist CAEN RFID. CAEN RFID specializes in UHF RFID and has developed its Easy2Read© and Easy2Log© technology into a full line of UHF RFID fixed/embedded readers, tags, RFID development tools and accessories. For design engineers, RFID enabled devices are becoming increasingly popular as UHF RFID-enabled products are perceived as smart devices, able to address multiple functions in several applications. Applications that can benefit most from this technology include: asset monitoring tracking, temperature monitoring, pharmaceutical transit, storage and control, access control, industrial manufacturing, logistics, supply chain and agriculture.

CAEN has made designing with RFID easier than ever with everything from rugged standalone readers to a variety of application specific embedded readers and tag solutions. The Easy2Read© readers/writers have been designed to permit the use of a single identification technology for reading at close range or at a range of several meters. In addition, the semi-passive Easy2Log© tags are available in rugged add-on or embedded options. CAEN has also made available to engineers, all-in-one RFID development kits. Included in each kit is everything needed to either implement RFID technology into a new design or upgrade an existing design. CAEN RFID development kits allow for a seamless non RFID to RFID transition regardless of RFID design experience.

"CAEN RFID products are among the best the world has to offer and their support is unmatched. Symmetry wanted to add one line that covers every need an engineer working with RFID may have and CAEN accomplishes just that," said Gil Zaharoni, Symmetry Electronics CEO.

"We recognize Symmetry's technical focus as a major benefit in a global distributor of specialized products like UHF RFID readers and tags. We believe that this partnership is the perfect match to enhance the support to CAEN RFID customers and partners in the US," said Adriano Bigongiari, CAEN RFID CEO.

CAEN RFID is a leading Italian company in the design and production of RFID UHF readers and tags. CAEN RFID was the first company in Europe to produce and distribute UHF readers. Its active involvement in the EPC Global, AIM Europe and ETSI work groups have allowed it to provide RFID readers and tags which are in the vanguard of existing technology. Amongst these, the Easy2Read© readers/writers have been designed to permit the use of one single identification technology for reading at close range or at a range of several meters; the semi-passive Easy2Log© tag can be used for the monitoring and recording of temperatures of perishable products in transit (such as food or chemical/pharmaceutical products in cold storage).
