Metalcraft RFID Tags Perform Well in University Study

A new research study has found that Metalcraft, a manufacturer of customized asset tags, has one of the most precise and reliable lines of radio frequency identification tags. The independent study, conducted by the University of Texas at Arlington and commissioned by Metalcraft, tested three of the company's Universal RFID tags against the top traditional RFID tags on the market.

The study examined 10 different RFID tags from top manufacturers and measured their performance regarding parameters that included distance, orientation and material. Three Metalcraft tags were involved in the study: the Universal, the Universal Mini, and the Universal Hard. All three tags consistently ranked among the top five, with the Universal Hard Tag consistently ranked in the top two. Overall, the study found, Metalcraft's Universal tags performed as well as or better than the traditional RFID tags tested.

Additional details, including the full study results and methodologies, are available at Metalcraft's website. The company displayed its entire line of Universal RFID tags at last week's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, held in Orlando, Fla.
