STiD Unveils Two New UHF RFID Tags for Aerospace, Oil and Gas Industries

French RFID firm STiD has added two new ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tags—the IronTag Flex and the IronTag 360—to its IronTag product family designed for the aerospace and oil and gas industries.

STiD's IronTag portfolio consists of passive EPC Gen 2 passive UHF RFID tags for tracking data on tagged parts, for use in rugged conditions and when attached to metal. The IronTag series is qualified and certified to withstand extreme conditions, the company reports: heat shocks and fast fluctuations, pressure (greater than 10 bars), liquid (including water, detergents, alcohols, oils, petrol, gas and kerosene) and flames.

STiD's IronTag 360
The IronTag Flex is a flexible high-memory tag suitable for the identification of cables and cylinders, STiD reports, even in demanding and harsh environments. Encased in silicone, the tag can be easily installed on curved surfaces, such as pipes, cylinders or cable bundles. Made with Quanray Electronics' QS-2AE chip, the tag offers 64 kilobits of memory and read-write performances of up to 2 meters (6.6 feet). Its IP 68 rating indicates that it is protected from dust and water.

According to the company, the IronTag 360 is designed to offer the best performances on any surfaces, including metal, and to ensure reading reliability regardless of the tag's position. It is a flexible, spiral-shaped tag made of silicone, with a read distance of up to 3 meters (9.8 feet) and an IP 68 rating, meaning it is dustproof and waterproof. The IronTag 360 features Impinj's Monza X-2K Dura chip.
