TRAKAID On-Metal RFID Asset Tag
Trakaid offers a unique modular family of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags suitable for use on metal and specifically designed for industrial gas cylinders. The tags custom design features tremendous adaptability to meet application requirements for tracking and identification of assets. The tags casing is modularized so that the curve is adjusted to meet specific requirements, making it easier to mount on flat or non-linear surfaces such as gas cylinders, drums, pipes and many other assets which require a permanent tag solution. The all-weather rugged tag, which reads reliably over and over, is resistant to extremes in temperature, moisture, debris, vibration, salt and other solvents. The design of TRAKAID tags compensates for the tendency of metal to alter resonant tag antenna properties, potentially detuning the antenna.
The Trakaid all-weather curved tag is an Ultra High Frequency (860 MHz- 960 MHz) EPC Class 1 Gen 2 passive tag optimized for identification of metal objects with read range customizable from 15 cm to 3 m. It can be attached to the item surface with an easy-peel industrial-strength adhesive or be permanently bonded to ensure it remains attached even in the harshest environments for years. The tag is powered by a powerful chip and antenna design that provides accurate reads from long distances.
