GAO RFID has launched a low frequency glass RFID tag. The Glass RFID Tag, also referred to as the GAO 111001, is intended for uses from laundry management to animal tracking, and is safely injectable when serving its tracking function.
The tag’s housing is waterproof and dustproof, and is resistant to immersion in salt water, alcohol, oil, 10% HCL and ammonia. The tag is highly insensitive to read interference caused by liquids and metals. It can be injected into an animal via syringe; when used in that application, the tag has a read range of 1 to 1.5 inches.
The LF Glass RFID Tag is read-only, operating in the 125 ± 6kHz frequency with a capacity of 256 bits. Once the tag is placed in a system, GAO claims the tag is virtually maintenance-free and can last for several years.
