CEO, RFID Alliance Corporation Does anybody know whether anti-explosion proof is required for a passive RFID tag when it is used in a room with combustible vapor ? I believe anti-explosion proof is required only for the wired devices such as interrogators and antennas.

Anti-explosion proof required for passive RFID tags ? There are many business cases where passive RFID tags are used for the tracking of combustibles (such as paints and solvents). Is anti-explosion proof required for the passive RFID tags used in a restricted rook with combustibles ? Can we use just regular RFID labels without encapsulation or molding for anti-explosion? Thanks
