Schreiner ProTech Unveils Globally Usable RFID Label for Metal Applications

Schreiner ProTech, a German manufacturer of labels for engineering-based industries, has announced a product intended to address issues related to globalization: the ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global label. The solution has an integrated, dual-band antenna capable of reading both ETSI (in Europe) and FCC (in the United States and Asia) frequency bands.

As the latest member of Schreiner ProTech's RFID on Metal family of label solutions, the ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global provides readability on all metallic substrates in markets throughout the world, the company reports. If a component is exported to several regions, the firm explains, it requires differing RFID labels; the new label thus covers both ranges.

The ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global label is intended to provide reliable readability on metal components, containers and transport items via specialized shielding materials. The label, measuring 50 by 40 millimeters, is 1.7 millimeter thick and has a read range of up to 3 meters. For a longer-range version, the read range is up to 6 meters. The label offers an alternative to hard tags, the company reports; it can be custom-printed and programmed onsite, can be automatically dispensed off the roll; and is suibtale for use in process automation and logistics applications.
