San Diego, CA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Neology, a subsidiary of RFID industry pacesetter SMARTRAC, announced today that it has received Certification for its 6C Three Position Selectable Mode Switch Tag (“S3”) from OmniAir Certification Services (OCS). The OCS Certification validates that Neology tags comply with interoperability requirements across varied equipment and facilities as well as withstanding the harsh conditions of the toll environment.
This high performance 6C product is designed specifically for electronic toll collection (ETC) and particularly for high occupancy toll (HOT) lane applications. The three position feature of the Switch Tag allows for differentiation between three separate accounts, including a SOV, 2+ Occupant and 3+ Occupant modes required by congested areas to improve customer satisfaction and mobility. Alternative uses are up to three separate accounts for business use or multi-state account management in one transponder. As with all Neology transponder products, the S3 Tag contains no toxic battery and is made with recyclable materials for minimal environmental impact and virtually unlimited life. The case is ergonomically designed with molded grip areas for ease of use when changing modes. In addition, a unique two-sided color code window allows positive identification of the selected mode both for the motorist and law enforcement.
"The certification of our innovative S3 Tag allows toll agencies for the first time to offer an environmentally friendly alternative to battery powered selectable transponders, while maintaining three fully independent lane pricing strategies," said Francisco Martinez, CEO of Neology.

OmniAir Certification Services, Inc. is an independent non-profit organization chartered to develop certification programs for the transportation industry for technologies in use in the Connected Vehicle community, including operators of tolled facilities. The first OCS test program developed was created at the request of the 6C Toll Operators Committee (6C TOC). OCS is open to developing certification programs for other user groups and other tolling technologies requested by the tolling community, including the potential for multi-protocol testing programs. The goal of the certification program is to ensure that OCS-certified devices are interoperable and perform according to requirements established by user groups. Devices must pass a series of rigorous tests in order to obtain certification. Most tests are protocol-independent. www.omniair.org
