Metalcraft long-read RFID Hard Tag
Apr 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Metalcraft's new standardized RFID (radio frequency identification) Hard Tag is designed to deliver longer read range at lower cost for asset tracking applications that require resistance to heavy impact or exposure.
Engineered to provide a read range more than 10 feet, the 5-inch-by-1-inch tag's construction houses the inlay in half-inch thick UV stabilized polycarbonate with a clear window for an internal label containing bar code or human readable data.
The tag can be affixed with mechanical fasteners and permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive. It features digital printing of the interior label, allowing full-color logos and other information.
Metalcraft can program the printed information — or other data — on the RFID inlay during production.
Testing has shown the tag will withstand exposure to a range of chemicals, water depths, and impacts as great as 20 tons.
