TagMaster NA Announces New UHF Headlamp Tag

TagMaster North America, a provider of rail and transportation applications, has introduced its Headlamp Tag (NA1500), an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID sticker designed for hands-free vehicle-access applications. According to TagMaster NA, the sticker is suitable for applications requiring a high number of non-transferable tags that call for a more discreet form factor.

The new tag, composed of thick laminated polyester, is tamper-evident, non-transferable and compliant with the EPC Gen 2 specifications. It has a read range of between 12 feet (when paired with TagMaster's XT-Mini reader) and 20 feet (when paired with the company's XT-1 and XT-3 readers), according to TagMaster NA. The tag measures 4 inches by 1 inch (101.6 millimeters by 25.4 millimeters) and is 0.02 inch (0.5 millimeter) thick.

The Headlamp Tag can be affixed to the headlamps of vehicles, which makes for an inconspicuous placement, TagMaster NA reports, but also serves vehicles possessing UV-coated windshields that may obstruct RFID transmission and lack a designated hotspot. The tag can be customized to meet customer preferences by the inclusion of serial numbering to allow for visual identification and easy issuance to end users. Each tag has strategically placed slits in the label and adhesive layers, resulting in a tamper-evident solution to prevent tag sharing or theft.
