Could an Ultrasound Bath Damage RFID Tags?
Should I be concerned about it affecting transponders?
I have not seen any testing performed on the effects of an ultrasound bath on an RFID transponder. I did a search of the Web to find out if studies have been done on ultrasound's impact on other types of microchips, but found nothing.
Obviously, a transponder would need to be protected against a liquid bath. I believe that if it had a suitably robust housing, an ultrasound bath would not impact a transponder's operation. However, I am just postulating. Testing would need to be done to be sure.
