Schreiner ProTech Intros On-Metal RFID Label

Schreiner ProTech, a German manufacturer of labels for engineering-based industries, has announced its new ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global Label. The label comes with an integrated, dual-band antenna capable of reading the frequency bands of both the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI, in Europe) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC, in the United States). Typically, the company explains, components exported to multiple regions require different RFID labels, but the ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global Label covers both frequency ranges.

As the latest member of Schreiner ProTech's RFID on Metal label family, the ((rfid))-DistaFerr is intended to boost RFID readability on metallic substrates, including metal components, containers and transport items, via specialized shielding materials. The label, measuring 50 millimeters by 40 millimeters (2 inches by 1.6 inches) and 1.7 millimeters (0.07 inch) in thickness, offers a read range of up to 3 meters (9.8 feet). A longer-range version has a read range of up to 6 meters (19.7 feet).

The ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global label is intended to be easy to apply, making it a viable alternative to hard tags. It can be custom-printed and programmed onsite, and can be automatically dispensed off the roll. According to the company, the label is suitable for use in process-automation and logistics applications.
