Project Description

Controlling vehicle access to individual locations – whether it’s corporate facilities, gated communities, or downtown parking lots – can be a challenge. Eliminate the need for on-site staff and the hassle of stopping for a card reader with Metalcraft’s RFID Windshield Tag.

Unlike other windshield tags on the market, the idtracon RFID Windshield Tag utilizes passive RFID UHF technology offering a more economical option to the active windshield tags available. Encased between thin layers of polyester, the specialized inlay doesn’t require a standoff to read either through or on a glass windshield. This product provides a read range of approximately 18+ feet. A tamper-evident option with strategically placed slits in the label and adhesive layers is also available at no additional cost.
