UHF
Does anyone have a solution for UHF RFID readers? 
That is, can anyone direct me to a supplier for "long range" RFID readers.
 Everything I am finding is "close range" for reading RFID within a few CM.
 I am looking for a solution for reading up to 5 or 10 Meters.

Paul, read range is a function of reader antenna,
 tag (chip, antenna design, placement), and environment in addition to reader. 
Pretty much any 860-920MHz UHF system will give you a read range
 of several meters even if your transmitting antenna is isotropic. 
(A 30dBm TX drops to -10dBm at ~3meters with an isotropic antenna.) 

You may want to check your transmit power setting. 

Most readers allow you to adjust it. 
You also may want to check the coax from the radio to the antenna(s). 

Otherwise, if you are only getting a few centimeters, 

could you possibly be using a low frequency (LF) 
or high frequency (HF) system? On LF/HF systems, 
power is supplied to the tag through inductive coupling, 
so your range will be ~ equal to the size of your antenna.
 A few centimeters is reasonable for LF/HF systems. 

As an example, with an Alien 9540 tag, I read at 13 meters 

(office environment) with both an Impinj, Mercury, 
and Sirit readers and 8dBiC antennas. I haven’t tested
 with Motorola or Intermec yet, but I assume they will
 work as well. (And, with PowerID’s BAP tag, 
I can almost do my testing from home.)

Thanks Peter! Let me digest this for a while 
and I'll get back to you with any questions I may have. Cheers!

Paul, 

Sirit, Alien, Impinj, ThingMagic, and Motrola

 all offer complete systems; readers and TX/RX antennas. 
I believe that they also offer demo kits with sample tags 
that will work well on cardboard or in free air,
 though not as well on equipment or embedded in an object.

Paul we distribute a variety of manufacturers products and solutions.
 The tags and the readers work in combination to provide read ranges variences.
 There are other things to think about to get the right answers. 
Are you talking about a mobile scanner of fixed.
 What are we trying to scan. in your case i see alot to do
 with youth marketing so perhaps cards, wristbands
 and the like for event management of customer loyalty.
 I would assit in pointing you in the right direction if you like
 You can call me at 800-661-7948 ext 2262

Couple of years back Symbol Technologies, now Motorola,
 announced tag and reader combination to read tag at distance
 of 60 feet moving at 60 mph. Applications ware for tracking
 of transportation vehicle. 
They have introduced extra large UHF tag and XR Series

 readers to achieve the read range.

You will see (C1G2) UHF tags coming out in the market
 that can be read with standard readers from about 100 ft.

My work was good enough x Excellence and Perfection


De:Ari Kormi

Assunto:Newsletter de grupo: Good Enough Never Is!
The mediocre and complacent justify their lack of effort and excellence by saying, “My work was good enough.” Well, good enough never is, as you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

Second best can lead to second class and in the competitive global marketplace mediocrity leads to irrelevance and being relegated to the status of “also-ran.”

The debate then becomes, what is good enough? Here is an interesting look at things – If 99% was good enough the following would happen in the United States not to mention what would happen globally.

If 99% were good enough then:

12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.

114,500 mismatched pairs of shoes will be shipped each year.

18,322 pieces of mail will be mishandled each hour.

2,000,000 documents will be lost by the IRS this year.

2.5 million books will be shipped with the wrong covers.

315 entries in Webster’s Dictionary will be misspelled.

20,000 incorrect drug prescriptions will be written this year.

880,000 credit cards in circulation will turn out to have incorrect card holder information on their magnetic strips.

103,260 income tax returns will be processed incorrectly during the year.

5.5 million cases of soft drinks produced will be flat.

291 pacemaker operations will be performed incorrectly.

In many things 100% perfection is required. In everything 110% effort and excellence is the order of the day. So whatever you do – do it with excellence, knowing that if you don’t – your competition will.

There are certain things in life and in business which require perfection. The rest must simply be done with excellence. A heart surgeon clearly has some things which require perfection. On the flip side, some activities are not worthy of perfection like getting through your email or reprinting your handouts for the meeting for the twentieth time because you want to try it in one more different font or color. (There is the perfection paralysis syndrome too, so there must be a balance.)

It is a good exercise to determine what things in your organization or in your individual life require perfection and what things require excellence.

The message is to live your life and run your business with a 110% commitment to excellence – because good enough never is.
