RFID Tags: Confidex Introduces New RFID Tag To Trace Wooden Assets
Confidex, a fast growing company with unique expertise in RFID design, manufacturing and engineering, recently announced Confidex Pino, an EPC Generation 2 RFID tag that enables users to economically track wooden pallets, one of the most common transit items used throughout the world.
Confidex has also identified applications within the forestry industry, which continues to strive for the improved usage of wood by reducing the environmental impact caused by inefficient forest production.
The Confidex Pino EPC Gen 2 RFID tag is specifically designed for high performance and durability and can be easily inserted into wooden assets, which until now, had been an implementation and economic challenge for users.
“Confidex has developed an economical and viable RFID tagging solution for these longstanding, challenging applications,” said Jarkko Miettinen, Confidex VP of Marketing. “Our unique expertise in RFID design and manufacturing enables Confidex to identify difficult applications in demanding environments and design RFID tagging solutions that meet our customers’ specific requirements.”
Hub télécom, a subsidiary of Aéroports de Paris Group, has developed a tracking system based on the Confidex Pino RFID tag for an asset management project in France. The project consists of RFID-equipped wooden pallets from Logistic Packaging Return (LPR) that are used by a food producer and a large retail company to automatically track their deliveries.
“Confidex Pino is a promising solution for wooden pallet tracking applications due to its performance, cost-efficiency, and easy installation on existing pallets, as well as on new pallets during production,” said Jacques Vandeputte, project manager at Hub télécom.
Pino joins Confidex’s industrial UHF RFID family of high-performing and durable tags including Ironside, Survivor, Steelwave, Corona,and Cruiser which have been successfully used in a variety of industrial asset tracking applications such as identification of IT assets, vehicles, rail cars, reusable transit items, in motion, from arctic to subtropical regions, and now, wooden items.
