HID Global launched an extremely thin yet rugged UHF RFID tag that can be affixed or integrated in industrial assets

Injection molding UHF RFID tag thin ruggedThe latest product from HID Global is an extremely thin yet rugged UHF RFID tag that can be mounted with adhesive or screws, or permanently embedded in custom housings or plastic assets at the point of manufacture. Thanks to its high quality epoxy enclosure, which reliably protects the internal electronics during the high temperature and pressure of injection molding processes, the tag can become invisible integral part of newly produced RFID enabled plastic containers.

Thin rugged UHF RFID tag

Epoxy Tag UHF

.

Despite a thickness of only 1 millimeter, the Epoxy Tag UHF is capable of surviving the harshest environmental factors,  strong and prolonged presence of moisture, temperature extremes, high-pressure & high-temperature wash-downs (IP69K), repeated autoclave cycles, aggressive chemicals, challenging mechanical stresses. Tuned to perform on non-metallic surfaces, such as plastic, wood and glass, the Epoxy Tag UHF is well suited for a broad range of asset tracking applications in manufacturing, healthcare and waste management. This thin and rugged UHF RFID tag features the Alien Technology Higgs-3 chip and comes in a single frequency version for being used across all world’s regions. Upon request, the Epoxy Tag UHF can be supplied with self-adhesive back, in customized dimensions, with other operating frequencies (LF, HF). It can also be printed with custom logos, barcodes or human-readable data.

Nedap Identification Systems Compact Tag, a cost-efficient, reliable solution for identification of drivers, personnel in buildings

Driver and personnel RFID trackingNedap Identification Systems’ Compact Tag is specifically designed to provide customers with a cost-efficient yet reliable solution for long range identification of drivers entering restricted areas and people accessing and moving inside buildings, i.e for personnel tracking.

Driver identification RFID tag

Compact Tag

.

The Compact Tag measures 85.5 x 54 x 4.9 mm and is offered with a variety of holders for being easily mounted on the vehicle windshield or worn at user’s neck, so it can be used hands-free. Powered by a long-life battery, the device provides excellent read performance even in challenging situations, such as when used as RFID tag for driver identification inside a vehicle proceeding at high speed, or when held in close proximity to human body. Furthermore, leveraging a special bi-faced antenna design, the tag delivers 360-degrees readability, with read range up to 7 meters if used in combination with Nedap’s TRANSIT Standard or Extended readers, and 4 meters if paired with TRANSIT Entry devices. The Compact Tag is a read-only tag, factory-programmed with a specific security code and a unique tag ID number. The product part number, the tag ID number and the date of manufacture are laser etched onto the back side of the tag as standard. The Compact Tag works at 2.45 GHz for long range identification applications, but is also compatible with Nedap’s proprietary 120 kHz technology and, optionally, with the EM4102 technology for short-range identification.

UHF RFID field strength visual meter allows to easily assess the performance of UHF RFID installations

UHF RFID field magnitude measurement.

New addition to Farsens’ portfolio of passive RFID sensors, Photon is a UHF RFID field strength meter that uses its high-brightness green Light Emitting Diode (LED) to provide a visual feedback on the magnitude of the surrounding UHF RFID field.

UHF RFID field strength meter

Photon (an encased version)

Battery-free device working with any EPC Class 1 Gen 2 RFID reader, the Photon is a useful tool to assess the performance of new or aging UHF RFID implementations, allowing to identify and eliminate weaknesses and therefore deliver better system installations. The on-board LED, which is based on a InGaN technology and provides wide viewing angle of 120 degrees, gives qualitative information on the RF strength. The stronger the RF field in a specific position and a specific orientation, the brighter the LED shines. Photon’s applications are not limited to the assessment of UHF RFID field strength. In fact, the product can be used as visual alert generator when carried by a person who enters a specific area or has to perform a certain task at a particular location. This UHF RFID field strength meter can be delivered in non-protected PCB formats or encapsulated in enclosures customized to meet any requirement in terms of mounting options and durability. Diverse antenna models are available to offer different directivity and read range up to 3 meters.

Please contact Farsens for further details on their UHF RFID field strength visual meter. Do you need other types of RFID tags? Try our RFID Tag Search Engine or contact us at info@veryfields.net, also for suggestions about complete RFID solutions.
