HID Global

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that its Identification Technologies division has added Near Field Communication (NFC)-readable tags to its rapidly expanding SlimFlex™ Tag portfolio of pliable, high- durability tags. The SlimFlex Tag family has gained wide acceptance in UHF RFID applications due to the tags’ flexible yet robust thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) housings. Today, high frequency (HF) systems can also take advantage of the tags’ resistance to repeated bending, torsion and harsh elements.

“The original SlimFlex Tags continue to expand the potential for enhanced logistics speed and accuracy, using UHF RFID technology,” said Richard Aufreiter, director of product management, Identification Technologies with HID Global. “We are excited by the possibilities that the new versatile, durable HF SlimFlex tags bring to customers who are integrating NFC and industrial high frequency tags into their systems.”

The latest tags in the SlimFlex Tag family can be read and written to with ISO/IEC 15693 interoperable NFC devices and other HF (13.56 MHz) RFID systems.

Additional Details for New SlimFlex Tags:

  • SlimFlex Tag 200 HF – A bendable 3.3 × 1.0 × 0.1 in (83 × 25  × 3 mm) tag in a high-visibility yellow color that mounts flush, even to irregular or cylindrical surfaces, with industrial glues, screws or standard cable ties.
  • SlimFlex Seal Tag HF – A similar high-visibility rectangular housing, with a convenient cable tie securely integrated into the unit. Ideal for sealing industrial containers – bags, bins or boxes – preventing unauthorised access to contents while in storage or during distribution.

All SlimFlex Tags, including the new HF tags, are waterproof and food compatible. The tags withstand rugged use, providing high resistance to aggressive liquids and UV rays, and stability at high and sub-freezing temperatures. SlimFlex tags tolerate repeated bending or torsion, while maintaining excellent performance characteristics.
