EECC Benchmark Study Finds UHF Tag Performance Better Than Ever

The European EPC Competence Center (EECC), a Germany-based provider of RFID services, released this week the newest edition of its annual UHF Tag Performance Survey (UTPS). In the 2016 edition, EECC researchers observe that on-metal tags are becoming smaller and increasing in sensitivity and reliability, and that new label manufacturers—many based in China—are offering affordable ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID tags that meet the quality of other UHF tags already on the market. In addition, the group devotes a chapter to RFID moisture sensors tags, and indicates that such tags operate as effectively as standard UHF labels.

This is the 10th year in which the organization has conducted its tag-performance study to test UHF RFID transponders—both standard and on-metal labels—at its facility near Dusseldorf, Germany. Throughout the past decade, the EECC has increased the number of tags included in the testing process, while subjecting those tags to more types of tests.
