Are Any UHF RFID Tags Especially Designed for Tracking Logs in the Forest Industry?

Posted By RFID Journal, 07.06.2015

Is there an existing ultrahigh-frequency tag on the market that could be mounted on an axe?

—Name withheld


Yes. Confidex's Pino passive UHF RFID tag was designed specifically for tracking trees and wooden objects. There is not a tag specifically designed for axes, but the Pino tag might work for this purpose. There are also transponders that can be welded to a metal axe head, but this would likely interfere with an axe's ability to split would. We have published several news stories about RFID projects that involved tracking trees, including the following:
