RFID tag takes abuse, comes back for more
Nov 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Intermec Inc has introduced a reusable RFID (radio frequency identification) tag that can withstand temperature extremes and hazardous exposures. The new Intermec RFID Large Rigid Tag lets businesses take advantage of RFID to track materials through industrial processes and global logistics operations. Its broadband antenna design provides superior performance on materials including metal, plastic, and wood.
Because the Intermec RFID LR Tag is reusable, each use of the tag costs only fractions of a cent. The tag can be rewritten thousands of times, providing lower cost per use on reusable assets than even disposable labels. Businesses can use a single tag to identify and track items such as subassemblies, work-in-process components, finished goods, material handling equipment, and logistics containers through production, supply chain, and asset management operations.
The Intermec RFID LR Tag measures 3.2 × 14.27 cm (1.26 × 6.1 inches). Its impact-resistant plastic packaging survives hazardous chemical exposure and withstands temperatures from -40° to 250° F (-40° to 121° C). The tag is compatible and interoperable with RFID readers that support EPC Gen 2 or ISO 18000-6B standards.
