What Types of RFID Tags Are Best Suited for Electrical Transformers?
Are there any tags designed specifically for this purpose?
There are no tags specifically designed for transformers, as far as I know. The appropriate tag to use would depend on your requirements. For example, if you needed to interrogate a tag from a distance of 10 meters (33 feet), that would require a different type of tag than if you were reading it from 2 meters (6.6 feet) away. If you needed to affix the tag to the outside of the transformer permanently, you would require a model that could be protected against the elements. And if you needed to store information about the transformer, you might require a high-memory chip in the tag.
I would suggest you contact Metalcraft, Omni-ID, Syrma Technology, The Tag Factory and William Frick & Co., and explain to them what precisely you are looking for. One of these companies should offer a tag that meets your needs.
