Global Tag Intros Raptory RFID On-Metal Tag

Global Tag has announced a new RFID on-metal tag designed to meet customer requirements for metal and inhomogeneous surfaces, as well as impermeability and strength.

The new RFID transponder, known as Raptory, incorporates all of the features that make it a suitable hard tag for industrial applications, the company reports. Raptory is available with a variety of RFID chips, including low-frequency (LF); high-frequency (HF) supporting the ISO 14443, ISO 15693 and Near Field Communication (NFC) standard specifications; and ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) supporting the EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-63 specifications.

Global Tag's Raptory tag
Measuring 95 millimeters by 25 millimeters by 13 millimeters (3.7 inches by 1 inch by 0.5 inch), the tag is encased in acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic and features an IP68 rating for certified protection from dust and water, signifying that it can withstand harsh environments. It comes with holes placed at the side ends of the transponder for attachment via screws or rivets, according to Global Tag, but also features 3M adhesive on the backside, so it can be easily affixed to any surface.

Global Tag offers a variety of customization options for the Raptory tag, such as encoding to the IC's memory and printing on the tag surface that can include a logo, text, serial numbers, bar codes and QR codes.
