HID Global

HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, recently announced the availability of its new SlimFlex Square Tag, a highly durable UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) tag that enables users multiple mounting options for optimal read range in industrial applications. The pliable SlimFlex Square configuration delivers read ranges of up to 26 ft (8 m) in dry conditions when mounted to any non-metal surface and in wet conditions when mounted vertically to a flat surface or extended from a corner.

SlimFlex Square Tag is the latest addition to the company’s recently introduced SlimFlex family of RFID transponders, which are among the most advanced general purpose UHF tags available. The tags’ unique thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) housings tolerate repeated bending or torsion, while maintaining excellent performance characteristics and safeguarding embedded electronics, even under harsh conditions.

“Following the successful launch of the SlimFlex Tag family at the end of last year, we are very excited to add SlimFlex Square,” said Richard Aufreiter, director of product management for Identification Technologies with HID Global. “The performance characteristics of the SlimFlex family of tags are enabling a new range of applications and prompting the development of new family members to be introduced soon.”

All SlimFlex RFID tags are waterproof, provide high resistance to aggressive liquids and deliver reliable performance and reading stability across fluctuating temperatures. Custom color options are available, and tags may be embossed or laser-engraved with a logo or message for branding or enhanced visual identification.

HID Global’s SlimFlex Square Tag and the entire SlimFlex family of UHF tags mount to uneven surfaces and deliver long read ranges for asset tracking and logistics, returnable transport item and waste management applications.
