Avery Dennison and RF Code to Unveil tamper-evident RFID Tag

Published on 2004-12-16. Author : SpecialChem

MESA, AZ & PASADENA, CA -- RF Code, Inc. and Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY) announced that they will be hosting two public demonstrations of the innovative Secure Strap security monitoring and electronic seal technology at industry events last week. RF Code, Inc., a premier designer, developer and manufacturer of active RFID technologies and Auto-ID data management software, and Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY), a global leader in global supply chain technology solutions will showcase the technology for the first time in advance of the product's general availability in early 2005.

Delegates visiting the National Cargo Security Council's "RFID in Real Time" conference December 5-7th in Long Beach, CA and those attending Forrester's seventh annual "Emerging Technology Showcase" December 8-10th in Scottsdale, AZ will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the Secure Strap.

The new product leverages RF Code's TAVIS data management platform, active RFID technology, and Avery Dennison's tamper sensor. The Secure Strap tags contain electronic seal technology for tamper monitoring, tracking, and locating of containers and other physical assets. Secure Strap consists of a radio lock (an active RFID real-time locating device) that is attached to a fiber-optic tamper sensor cable. If the cable is compromised in any manner, Secure Strap will send out a radio distress signal indicating its identification code and a tamper indication signal. An encrypted reset key will allow reuse of the radio lock component of the Secure Strap system.

"Avery Dennison is very pleased to introduce a tamper monitoring solution built upon RF Code's award-winning hardware and software platforms," said Joe Miglionico, Business Development Manager for Avery Dennison's Industrial and Automotive Products North America Division. "We are currently using Secure Strap in Operation Safe Commerce (OSC) and the applications in vertical markets such as transportation, logistics, security and manufacturing are far reaching."

"Avery Dennison provides world class design and manufacturing product development along with a global supply chain delivery capability," adds Rob Ufford, Vice President of Business Development, for RF Code. "We are proud that Avery Dennison chose our technology to add to its proven line of security solutions."

Avery Dennison is currently involved in a pilot program with the U.S. Transportation Safety Administration to enhance security at the nation's ports by implementing RFID-solutions that monitor container shipments on ocean vessels.
