Syndicate Secure Print RFID Windshield Label Doubles as License Plate

Syndicate Secure Print has announced its Crystal 3rd License Plate, a non-transferrable, tamperproof RFID windshield label. With IR and UV light protection, the company reports, the tag can be applied to windshields, with a read range of up to 10 meters, depending on the reader.

With conventional RFID windshield tags, users are limited to printing variable data on the side, which faces the inside of the vehicle. This, the company explains, restricts visual means of identification. The Crystal 3rd License Plate label is designed to allow a user to print variable data on demand, which can then be read from outside a vehicle. According to the company, the tag is suitable for applications requiring a visual means of identification.

Typical application includes use as a parking permit, for which a label can remain on a windshield for the lifetime of that vehicle, with permit extensions carried out electronically. Multiple permits can be clubbed into the same windshield tag. Other applications include electronic vehicle registration, emissions inspection, fleet management and toll collection.

Most conventional RFID windshield labels can be removed without tamper and are thus transferrable. The Crystal 3rd License Plate label features a tamperproof construction. If any attempt at removal is made, the label will not come off intact, thereby making it impossible for the label to be transferred to another vehicle. In addition, the company produces a range of RFID and NFC tamperproof, non-transferrable labels for anti-counterfeit, theft-prevention and brand-protection applications.
