Contrinex Unveils New RFID Tag for High-Temperature Applications
Contrinex, an RFID technology leader based in Carrollton, Texas, has unveiled a transponder as part of its Ultra High Temperature (UHT) series of high-frequency (HF) 13.56 MHz RFID tags designed for modern, smart-factory applications and harsh industrial environments. The new transponder, model RTP-0502-062, features FRAM memory, a type of non-volatile memory with low power consumption, high speed and long life expectancy, even under intense read-write cycling, the company reports.

Contrinex's UHT-Transponder RTP-0502-062
The RTP-0502-062 provides robust performance in a variety of high-temperature applications during which the tag may be exposed to a range of rinsing, coating and burning operations, according to Contrinex. The tag can accompany products throughout all processes.

The tag's 2 kilobytes of FRAM memory can be used to store individual data, including customer requirements, directly on the product or carrier. All Contrinex UHT tags are silicone-free and have an IP68/IP69K protection rating. They can be used at ambient temperatures ranging from -13 degrees Fahrenheit to +482 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 degrees Celsius to +250 degrees Celsius) and can be read and written to directly upon leaving the high temperature zone, according to Contrinex, with no cooling-down time required. The UHT series also includes the RTP-0502-082 (with 112 bytes of memory) and the RTP-0502-022 (with 160 bytes). All tags in the UHT series comply with the ISO 15693 standard and have a diameter of 50 millimeters (2 inches).
