Like all the previously released Omni-ID Fit tags, also the Fit High Temperature products are small and light-weight for being attached to hand tools, small IT assets and other metal objects with a tiny surface to accommodate a tag, but the strengthened structure with the added ability to withstand repeated exposure to very high peak temperatures up to 225°C and challenging thermal shocks expands the range of their applications. Fit 100 High Temperature, Fit 210 High Temperature and Fit 400 High Temperature represent reliable solutions for tracking surgical instruments, medical implants, food returnable containers and other assets that undergo autoclave sterilization, work in process parts that go through paint shop processes and acidic plating in automotive manufacturing, equipment used at high temperatures in the oil and gas industry. Surviving also rubber vulcanization and compression molding, these high temperature small UHF RFID tags for metal are being integrated in tires to enable their effective tracking at any manufacturing stage.

Measuring just 6.8mm x 6.4mm x 2.1mm and weighing 0.8 grams, Fit 100 is a perfect choice for sugical instrument and very small hand tools. Fit 100 can be read from up to 1.1 meters with fixed readers and half a meter with handheld devices.
Fit 200, which measure 13.1mm x 7.1mm x 3.1mm and weighs 1.6 grams, provides read range up to 4 meters and 2 meters with fixed and handheld readers respectively. Fit 200 works very well when placed in a recess in the metal surface.
Fit 210 is 57.1mm x 5.95mm x 1.3mm and with its narrow and extremely thin form factor is well suited for hand tools such as wrenches and ratchet tools, containers and other assets that offer a longer surface to host a tag. The read distance of Fit 210 achieves 2 meters with fixed readers and 1 meters with handheld interrogators.

These high temperature small UHF RFID tags for metal can be delivered with adhesive film on their back to facilitate the positioning on the asset surface, but use permanent liquid adhesive is strongly recommended to ensure secure bonding during high temperature processes. Like the standard Fit tags, also the Fit High Temperature products can be delivered with ATEX certification for use in hazardous areas.

Omni-ID shared the recording of the webinar held to present their new small high temperature UHF RFID tags and answers questions coming from their customers. Watch it by clicking on the picture below.

Xerafy Xplorer, UHF RFID tag specifically designed for tracking drill pipes and other metal assets in the oil & gas industry

RFID tags drill pipes trackingRecently, Xerafy released Xplorer, a UHF RFID tag specifically conceived for drill pipes tracking. Designed while working closely with oil and gas service companies, this extremely rugged RFID tag allows accurate tracking of down-hole and surface drill pipes, sub-sea oil pipes, blowout preventers (BOPs), wellheads and other metal assets used in the harshest conditions of the oil and gas industry.

Xplorer

Xplorer can be quickly and securely snapped in a circular hole with diameter of 28mm drilled in the pipe surface to accompany the asset along its whole life. The new Xerafy product leverages the advantages of the UHF RFID technology and emphasize them through an innovative RF design to offers high data rate combined with read range up to 1.5 meters when flush-mounted in metal. This results in easy and fast asset identification also in difficult conditions, for instance with low luminosity and presence of dirt, and effective retrieval of data about technical specifications, maintenance history and usage information of any tagged asset. This UHF RFID tag drill pipes tracking has been validated by tests simulating simultaneous high temperature and high pressure. Its rugged encasement, which is made of stainless steel 304 and a special polymer by Victrex, is rated IP69K and withstands very long exposure to high temperatures up to 250°C, high pressure up to 30000 psi, strong vibrations and shocks, sand blast processes, all kinds of corrosive chemicals typical of oil wells’ drilling operations, including hydrogen sulphide (H²S). The tag is ATEX certified for being safely used in hazardous environments. Xplorer features the Alien Technology Higgs-3 chip and can be delivered pre-encoded and laser engraved. The product is available in 902-928 MHz and 865-868 MHz versions.
