Xerafy Releases Ceramic RFID Tag

Xerafy has announced its MicroX II ceramic RFID tag, designed to perform in the presence of extreme heat and under repeated exposure to caustic fluids, for such applications as hot water wash cycles. The tag is ATEX-certified for use in explosive atmospheres in which customers need to be assured that safety will not be compromised.

According to the company, the tag can operate under high application temperature ranges and perform under repeated exposure to caustic fluids, as it is built for use in extreme environments. Applications include bulk container tracking, AGV/small vehicle management and RTI management.

The tag's operating temperature is -40 degrees to +185 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius). It measures 2.01 inches by 1.43 inches by 0.30 inch and weighs 0.92 ounce. The tag's read range on metal is up to 33 feet. It comes with an attachment rivet hole measuring 0.12 inch and an optional adhesive.

The MicroX II is IP68-rated. Application temperatures range from -40 degrees to +482 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 degrees to +250 degrees Celsius). It complies with the EPC Class 1 Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C RF air-interface protocols. Operating frequencies include 902 to 928 MHz (UHF) in the United States and 866 to 868 MHz in the European Union. The tag contains a Higgs-3 chip from Alien Technology.
