HID Global achieved ATEX Certification for its complete IN Tag portfolio of industrial RFID tags, including the company’s new high frequency IN Tag 200 OM and 500 OM transponders, designed to perform when mounted on metal assets. The company’s entire line of industrial Glass Tags has also earned ATEX certification.
ATEX certification validates that HID Global RFID tags operate without danger of directly causing or contributing to an explosion when used in flammable gas environments. ATEX certification also validates that the company’s RFID tags perform while maintaining surface temperatures low enough to prevent the risk of ignition.
The certification enables process automation and identification for both metal and non-metal assets, ensuring safe tag use in potentially explosive environments. These environments include offshore drilling platforms, petrochemical plants, mines, flourmills and other process industries in which there are a mixture of gases, vapors, mists or dust in the air that can ignite at specific temperatures or under certain operating conditions.
Available now, the entire IN Tag family is water-, chemical- and shock-resistant and comes available in low frequency, high frequency and ultra-high frequency. IN Tag discs come in a variety of sizes to match needs for mounting and read range performance.
