AIM Presents Two Standards for Public
Immunity Test for Exposure to RFID Readers
& Update to Ultracode Symbology
Township, PA | November 10, 2015 – AIM,
the leading industry association and worldwide authority on barcode, RFID, NFC,
the Internet of Things (IoT), RTLS and mobile computing, has announced 30-day
public review periods for both new and updated automatic identification and
data capture standards.
The first review for Medical Electrical Equipment and System
Electromagnetic Immunity Test for Exposure to Radio Frequency Identification
Readers highlights a standard developed by AIM's RFID Experts
Group (REG) Healthcare Initiatives Work Group for consideration as an AIM
Standard. The purpose of this document is to provide a test methods and
test levels for the elevation of the electromagnetic immunity of
(non-implantable) medical electrical equipment and systems to electromagnetic
emissions from radio-frequency-identification (RFID) readers.
A public review opportunity for an updated version of the International
Symbology Specification (ISS) – Ultracode, developed by AIM’s Technical
Symbology Committee (TSC), is also available. Ultracode symbology is a
family of color multi-row, variable-length two-dimensional matrix symbols
incorporating structural rules for symbol damage detection. It also uses
Reed-Solomon Error Control for error detection and data correction. The
Ultracode symbol is designed to be printed or displayed with any CMYK or RGB
print or electronic display technology, and read with any standard
sRGB-compliant scanner, color digital camera or mobile phone.
