HID Global announced the availability of an extended selection of RFID tags for identifying, directing and tracking assets through a variety of industries and applications.
These new additions include passive tags that operate on the ultra-high frequency radio spectrum, which provides a greater read distance for tracking and monitoring in a wide range of applications – including waste management, food and animal, laundry, medical, container identification, returnable transport items and more.
The HID Global RFID tag portfolio encompasses the following recent additions:
- The new EPCglobal Class 1 Gen 2 ultra-high frequency On Metal RTI transponder, designed primarily for use in the chemical and petroleum industries. This tag is capable of withstanding exposure to harsh conditions and provides broadband self resonance frequency from 860 to 960 MHz, allowing up to 7 meters read range worldwide without reduction of performance.
- The InLine 120/52 UHF Tag, which is designed for outdoor use for applications, from simple asset tracking solutions to returnable transport items. Operating over the 840-928 MHz range, the InLine tags provides quick and easy container identification, with a read range that extends to 6 meters.
- The IN Tag 500 UHF Tag, optimized for applications from simple asset tracking to high-temperature process automation with high fluid and temperature resistance for severe environments. These robust EPCglobal Class 1 Gen 2 UHF tags can withstand temperatures up to 140° centigrade, and the standard version can be easily mounted on plastic or wood using standard screws.
- The waste bin tag, On Metal Bin Tag, enables cities and industries to easily waste and recycling containers. It was designed to withstand physical and chemical resistance and it is also highly resistant to aggressive liquids. The tag is stabile with fluctuating temperatures from -40° C up to +90° C.
- And the Logi Tag. Designed specifically for textile identification and inventory control in laundry applications, it is resilient to high temperatures and industrial detergents, and tolerates high water pressure.
