Omni-ID Intros Its Smallest UHF On-Metal Printable Label

RFID supplier Omni-ID has announced the smallest member of its Ultrathin family of ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID labels designed to be reliable on and off metal from any orientation. The IQ 150 measures 60.0 millimeters by 12.5 millimeters by 0.9 millimeters (2.36 inches by 0.5 inch by 0.035 inch), supports the EPC Gen 2 specification and is optimized for thermal bar-code printers. According to the company, the self-adhesive label is suitable for tracking IT data center assets, office equipment, hospital and lab supplies, cylinders and pipes, and assets in warehouses.

Omni-ID's IQ 150 on-metal label
The label works with standard RFID printers and can be easily attached to flat and curved metal and plastic surfaces to a minimum radius of 58 millimeters (2.3 inches), Omni-ID reports. It has an IP 68 rating, which means it is dustproof and waterproof and can withstand harsh chemical and environmental conditions.

The standard version of the IQ 150 is made with Impinj's Monza R6 chip, which offers 96 bits of Electronic Product Code (EPC) memory. A version made with Impinj's Monza 4QT chip will be available in November 2015, the company reports, and will feature 96 bits of EPC memory and 512 bits of user memory.
