Century Link Unveils New UHF RFID Laundry Tags

RFID solutions provider Hangzhou Century Link has added two new passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID laundry tags to its CiLink series. According to the company, the TexSilicon (CE36082) and TexSilicon Slim (CE36083) are designed to be used for tracking bed linens, towels, uniforms or other bulk laundry items, in order to improve inventory management, reduce labor costs and optimize the lifecycle of textiles and garments.

The TexSilicon Slim (CE36083)
The TexSilicon measure 67 millimeters by 30 millimeters by 2.6 millimeters (2.6 inches by 1.2 inches by 0.1 inch), while the TexSilicon Slim measures 80 millimeters by 11 millimeters by 2.6 millimeters (3.1 inches by 0.4 inch by 0.1 inch). Housed in fabric with silica gel, the soft, flexible and thin tags can be applied by various methods, the company reports, such as insertion into a hem, sewing or heat-sealing. Designed to endure the rigors of high-pressure wash cycles, the tags have an IP68 rating, indicating protection from water and chemicals common to commercial laundry and dry-cleaning processes, and are designed to withstand sterilizing heat and pressure. Personalized printing is available.

The TexSilicon and TexSilicon Slim are made with an Impinj Monza 4QT chip supporting the ISO 18000-6C and EPC Gen 2 specifications. The tags offer a read range of up to 3 meters (9.8 feet) using a fixed reader, the company says, and up to 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) with a handheld reader.
