Tiny and rugged LF HF UHF RFID tags

HID Global’s UHF Brick Tag models

The UHF models have a ceramic enclosure and are specifically designed to track small metal assets such as work tools, weapons, surgical instruments and other small metal assets. They survive prolonged use in demanding industrial environments, endure exposure to aggressive chemicals and reliably withstand repeated autoclave sterilization processes. The UHF Brick Tag transponders are available in four sizes: 10mm x 2.5mm x 2.5mm (Brick Tag 60), 5mm x 5mm x 3mm (Brick Tag 75), 10mm x 5mm x 3mm (Brick Tag 150), 23mm x 9mm x 3mm (Brick Tag 600). All the UHF Brick Tag models use the Alien Technology Higgs-3 chip.

The standard HF version, which embeds the HID Global Vigo 1K™ chip, is compatible with the ISO 15693 standard and, if NDEF formatted, offers compliance with the NFC Forum Type 5 Tag  to be read with any NFC reading device, smartphones included. Working well on both metal and non-metal surfaces, the Brick Tag with Vigo 1K chip is a great choice for hand tools, IT devices, cables and other assets with very limited space to accommodate a tag.

As per the LF frequency band, a new product that leverages a HDX chip that works at 134.2 kHz and offers 128 bits of read-only memory has joined a previously released 130 kHz model based on a Nova chip with a 160 bit EEPROM.

Vehicle identification long-range RFID tagNedap Identification Systems released Window Tag Ultimate, a battery-powered, long-range RFID tag specifically engineered to offer high-end performance and security features in vehicle identification applications.

Driver-activated high-security RFID tag for vehicle identification

Window Tag Ultimate

Since it can be read only for 5 seconds after easy manual activation, Window Tag Ultimate allows the driver to keep full control over tag ID reading operations. Additionally, besides being compatible with Nedap Identification Systems’ robust 2.45 GHz RFID protocol for vehicle identification, Window Tag Ultimat leverages a 433 MHz air interface protocol that features AES128 encryption to add an extra layer of security. This driver-activated high-security RFID tag for vehicle identification comes with a factory-programmed read-only memory, so that it is recommended for applications where only vehicle ID reading is required, for instance parking access management and gated communities. The device can be easily mounted on the interior side of vehicle’s windshield by means of an integrated suction cup and come in a compact and elegant form factor combined with anthracite color to match typical automotive interiors. Thanks to its battery-assisted technology, the read performance is excellent and the read range achieves 10m. Window Tag Ultimate is specifically designed for being used with Nedap Identification Systems’ TRANSIT Ultimate reader, but is compatible also with previous models of the TRANSIT series. The user replaceable AAA batteries offer an expected life-time of 5 years, depending on average climate conditions. The part number, tag ID number and date of manufacture are laser etched into the back case of the tag.

Please contact Nedap Identification Systems for additional information on this driver-activated high-security RFID tag for vehicle identification. Are you looking for other kinds of RFID tags?

RFcamp released Titan Inch SQ HT, low-cost on-metal UHF RFID tag for high temperature applications

High temperature on-metal RFID tags RFcamp .

RFcamp unveiled Titan Inch SQ HT, an on-metal UHF RFID tag specifically designed to withstand high temperature over 200°C for prolonged time and allow large RFID deployments thanks to its low cost.

High temperature on-metal UHF RFID tag low cost

Titan Inch SQ HT

The Titan Inch SQ HT endures 5 hours at 230°C and even higher temperature for shorter time, for instance 250°C for 1 hour. The product withstands also repeated thermal cycles from 20°C to 200°C. Moreover, the Titan Inch SQ HT is rated IP68 against ingress of dust and liquids and survives challenging mechanical stresses and immersion in aggressive chemicals such as sodium hydroxide (10%, pH13) and sulfuric acid (10%, pH2). Despite its small footprint of just 26 mm x 26 mm x 2.5 mm, this high temperature on-metal UHF RFID tag can be read from up to 2.5 meters with fixed readers and up to 1.5 meters when interrogated with handheld devices. The product shows high orientation insensitivity and consistent readings when fixed with stainless screws. Thanks to its excellent durability and performance combined with its low cost, the Titan Inch SQ HT is suitable for large-volume tracking of metallic parts in paint lines and many other industrial applications that involve very high temperature. The product is available in two different frequency versions, 865-868 MHz for use in Europe, India, South Africa and Middle East, and 902-928 MHz for Americas, China, Japan.
