iDTRONIC Releases New Tags for Harsh Environments
iDTRONIC has announced that its new Heavy Duty RFID tags have been developed for use in harsh environments involving dust, water or fire, and can be customized to a client's needs. The tags are built to withstand outdoor environments containing metals, chemicals, high temperatures or large amounts of water, the company reports. The ATEX-compatible tags are passive-oriented and provide a long lifecycle, according to iDTRONIC. Identification of the new tags can be accomplished using an RFID reader that supports EPCglobal's Gen 2 ISO/IEC 18000-6C standard.
The tags contain an Impinj Monza X-8K Dura chip with 128 bits of memory. They are made of high-temperature ceramic filler and weigh 150 grams. The Armored RFID UHF tag comes with two pre-drilled holes and is mountable on any surface via M4 screws. Alternatively, the tag can be welded onto metal items such as returnable containers, canisters or pallets. This model of tag is suitable for use in the oil industry on ships, the company reports.
The tags contain an Alien Higgs 3 chip containing 128 bits of memory. The BT-1HT is composed of high-temperature resin with ceramic filler, while the BT-3HT is made of high-temperature nylon. They weigh 36 grams and 43 grams, respectively. According to iDTRONIC, the tags are suitable for cold and hot temperature environments ranging from -50 degrees Celsius to +400 degrees Celsius.
