Project Description

T he closest thing you will find to a “one-sizefits- all” RFID solution! The Universal RFID Tag features an inlay design that offers the lowest profile of any tags in its class – solving a common issue many customers have with other metal mount RFID tags.

This revolutionary product line features surface-independent tags with a patented inlay designed to obtain excellent read range regardless of the surface – metal, plastic, even wood. Custom programming matches the printed bar code information allowing you the option of using both tracking technologies.

  • Patented inlay design obtains excellent read range regard less of surface – metal, plastic, even wood

  • Lowest profile in its class makes label unobtrusive

  • Subsurface printing on durable polyester protects printed copy against moderate solvents and caustics/acids

  • Digital printing process provides for greater print capability with detailed logos or special designs

RFID temperature sensor tag product information

Material .002” thick polyester label adhered to proprietary inlay wrapped around 1/16” closed cell foam. Total product thickness is approximately .085”
Serialization Barcode and human-readable equivalent are produced using the latest high-resolution digital technology available, which provides excellent clarity and easy scanning.Code 39 is the standard symbology with a range of 2.7 to 5.4 CPI (characters per inch). Optional symbology is Code 128.
Label Copy The label copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. All copy, block type, stylized type, logos, designs, and bar code are subsurface printed. This unique process provides moderate resistance to solvents, caustics, acids and abrasion.
Colors Standard colors include black, red, yellow, green, dark blue, orange, purple and blue. Due to contrast needed for the bar code scanner, all bar codes are black.

Chemical Test Summary

In all cases, after 3 weeks soaking in these chemicals, all the tags and labels responded properly when interrogated with a handheld RFID reader, and all the bar codes except those soaked in acetone were readable with a standard bar code reader.

Temperature Test Summary

Heat Testing - Product withstood temperatures up to 115°C for short-term (10 minutes) periods. They will withstand temperatures up to 71°C for extended periods (tested for six hours with no degradation). The tests demonstrated that the transponder was not readable at temperatures above 85°C, but resumed function when temperatures were once again reduced below 85°C.

Cold Testing - Tags were tested outdoors at 0°F and were readable, but read distance was reduced to half of the read distance observed at 15°C.

Read Range Test Data (metres)

In many cases the tags read intermittently for longer distances than those indicated, however, the results reported
below were for continuously responding reads.
