Schreiner LogiData Unveils Tiny UHF Label With Reading Range of Up to 1 Meter
Schreiner LogiData has introduced a new, tiny ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID label for metal substrates. The ((rfid))-DistaFerr Mini is designed for tracking tiny components and objects in such applications as asset management and product labeling. The label allows the automated transmission of production-specific data to a UHF RFID reader integrated in a machine so that it can serve as the communication medium between product and machine, making it suitable for smart factory solutions. The label has a reading range of up to 1 meter (3.3 feet), which the company says is 10 times better than the 5-centimeter to 10-centimeter (2-inch to 4-inch) range of standard high-frequency (HF) solutions used in similar applications.
Users can program and print the label individually onsite using a thermal transfer printer-encoder. In the fields of asset management and inventory management, Schreiner LogiData reports, the ((rfid))-DistaFerr Mini label is suitable for a range of applications involving non-metal objects, housings or components, which offer only limited space for an RFID label but require clear identification with a hand scanner.
CenturyLink Introduces Reusable RFID Tag Solution for RetailCentury Link RFID, a wholly owned subsidiary of Century Group, has announced its RFID Finger, an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) EPC Gen 2 RFID tag on a flexible lanyard. The RFID Finger is an electronic article surveillance (EAS) tag designed for use on a variety of retail items, such as garments, shoes, purses, sporting goods, appliances or housewares. According to the company, it provides retailers with options for loss prevention and inventory visibility.
The RFID Finger is reusable, can easily be attached to a variety of items via a locking pin mechanism integrated into the lanyard, and does not require any additional fixture accessories. It has a read range of up to 2 meters (6.6 feet) when used with a handheld reader, according to Century Link RFID. In addition to an RFID version, the firm offers an RFID plus RF/AM model that supports both RFID and acousto-magnetic (AM) technologies. Acoustic-magnetic systems use gates at exits that emit tonal bursts at about 58 kHz, causing magnetic material in the tags to resonate. When an EAS tag is not deactivated, receivers at the gates pick up its signal and sound an alarm.
Available now, the RFID Finger is compatible with standard RFID and AM EAS systems, according to Century Link RFID.
