HID Global

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that its Identification Technologies division is expanding its ultra-durable Epoxy Tag portfolio of RFID tags to include broadband UHF varieties to address the needs of RFID systems integrators worldwide who are seeking increased data collection speed and accuracy.  With ultra durable housings, Epoxy Tag UHF transponders also expand the potential for process improvement and cost savings into a broad spectrum of rugged industrial applications.

“With anti-collision technology, wide read-range and global interoperability, broadband UHF continues to emerge as the technology-of-choice for advanced tracking and data collection systems,” said Richard Aufreiter, director of product management, Identification Technologies with HID Global. “The ultra-thin Epoxy Tag UHF enables the benefits of UHF technology to be applied in new arenas, such as embedding RFID tags directly into injection-molded plastic goods at the time of production.”

The Epoxy Tag UHF units provide the benefits of UHF RFID systems while offering a durable solution that can withstand the most demanding environments. The solution’s rugged housing:

  • Withstands exposure to temperature extremes, from -40° F to 360° F (-40° to 160° C) and higher for the short time of plastic injection
  • Is resistant to fuels, mineral oils, petroleum and salt mist
  • Repels moisture – even in high pressure washes
  • Tolerates repeated mechanical vibration and shock
  • Is printable with logos, barcodes or text when retrofitted

Epoxy Tag UHF units endure repeated sterilisation and autoclaving cycles when mounted on medical instruments and devices. They can be retrofitted to non-metallic containers or, with their resistance to the heat and pressure of injection molding processes, be permanently embedded into industrial components, equipment or containers.

Each micro thin 0.04 in (1mm) Epoxy Tag device has a smooth surface, which may be imprinted with customised visual codes or artwork. Epoxy Tag transponders may be adhered with glue, secured with screws, or embedded in a custom housing, depending on the application.
