|Metal Mount or Mount in Metal UHF RFID tags|
|by Geoff Dewhurst|
|October 28, 2008 SkyRFID Inc. recently announced the availability of an entire range of ceramic RFID Inlay tags for Metal Mount or Mount in Metal applications. With read ranges from 2 meters to over 6 meters, and temperature ranges of up to 200 °C these tags fit into many asset and product tracking solutions where higher temperatures are required or where very small size is necessary. |
The smallest metal mount RFID inlay tag now available is a 25.5 mm x 9 mm x 3 mm (1” x 0.35” x 0.11”) tag that you can fasten to a metal object using the attached self-adhesive tape strip on the back of the tag. This tiny tag gives a read distance of 2 meters (6.56 feet) and handles temperatures from -40° C through 150°C (-40°F to 334°F). This tag is perfect for PCB boards, small assets, and other product identification requirements which can use a mount on metal tag this size.
The new “mount in metal” high temperature tag is almost as small with a form factor of 21 mm X 17 mm x 2 mm (0.82” x 0.66” x 0.07”) and handles up to 200°C or 392 °F while providing a read distance of 1 meter (39”). Metallic mould management, asset management and product identification are three areas where this tag has an excellent fit. Virtually any small metal object that is capable of having a recess to house this tag is where it can be utilized most.
Also introduced were several other Multi - Purpose Metal tags that could be used for warehousing, pallet tracking, asset management, product identification and automotive component tracking. These tags are somewhat larger – from 80 mm x 11 mm x 3.7 mm (3.14” x 0.43” x 0.137”) with a 5 meter (16.40 feet) read distance to 130 mm x 22 mm x 3.7 mm ( 5.08” x 0.86” x 0.137”) with a 6 meter (19.68 feet) read distance. The maximum temperatures on these tags are from 120°C to 150°C (280°F to 334°F) which is plenty high enough for most applications. One of the tags has a 128 Bit memory and the remainder are all EPC Gen 2 96 bit standards.
Now SkyRFID provides a wide portfolio of metal mount or mount on metal tags that can be used in almost any situation where you need to read Gen 2 tag from at least 1 meter away.
