Why choose RFID tags at OPP IOT and what can OPP IOT do?
OPP IOT provides the complete RFID tag customization services as follow:
1).Resistance to extreme temperatures – Tags with this ability can be used for tagging items in freezers or cold temperature environments (as low as -55° C), or with high-temperature environments (up to 280° C).
2).Metal-mountable – A few label/inlays exist that are metal-mountable, but the majority of metal-mount RFID tags are hard tags. These tags are tuned to work well on metal and must be used when tagging metal items unless a spacer is used to separate the metal object from the non-metal mountable tag. Of note, tags made specifically for on-metal applications tend to get better read range than those with spacers added post-manufacturing.
3).Printability – The ability to print directly onto a tag’s face is a unique feature of inlays/labels, which allows the tags to be identified visually, or support marketing/branding purposes. Most RFID inlays/labels can be run through an RFID printer which is very convenient for large scale operations. Of note, while it isn’t possible to print directly onto hard RFID tags, most still are able to support a manually applied label or sticker.
4).Embeddability – The ability to be embedded within an item is very useful in some rugged applications where the tag could potentially get knocked off or be in the way of the item’s use. Most embeddable applications involve wood or metal. The key to embedding tags in metal is to make sure that only three sides of the tag are covered with metal while one side is left open to allow for reader/tag communication. Epoxy can be used to cover the open side to seal the tag in place.
5).Impact resistance – Some rugged application environments, like construction yards, need tags that can withstand impact from other objects. Non-impact resistant hard tags will not be able to withstand much shock before the enclosure breaks and the tag stops functioning.
6).Vibration resistance – The vibration in vehicles, trains, and certain types of machinery can be problematic for not only RFID readers, but tags as well. Intense, constant vibrations need to be mitigated by using a tag that can stand up to that type of repetitive, high-intensity motion.
7).Customizable – Most labels/inlays can be customized with graphics, text, or colors, but other labels can be customized to a specific shape and form factor, material type, or given a specialty adhesive depending on the item being tagged. Some hard tags can also be given a specialty adhesive, have labels manually applied, or be produced in certain colors. A minimum order quantity usually exists, but truly customizable tags can be designed and shaped according to the application’s needs.
8).Autoclavable – The autoclave is a piece of machinery that is used often in the healthcare field to sterilize instruments after use. Normal RFID tags cannot withstand the heat of the sterilization process, so it is necessary to choose a tag that is autoclavable for these applications.
9).UV resistance – In applications where the tagged item will spend a significant time subjected to UV (or Ultra-Violet) waves, if the tag contains printed information on its face, the chosen tag will need to be resistant to the UV exposure. This includes printed tags that will be unprotected from sunlight (through a window or door) for long periods of time.
10).ATEX certified – ATEX certification means that the RFID tags are approved for use in environments with an explosive atmosphere. These tags are used for applications in environments like mines or workplaces with activities that release flammable gases or vapors.
11).Chemical Resistance – Chemical resistance is a feature that is used in the presence of airborne and water-based chemicals so that the tag does not breakdown or corrode from exposure.
12).Ingress Protection – For applications around dust/dirt or water, ingress protection ratings (or IP ratings) are incredibly important to check before selecting a tag. The first digit of the IP rating will be 0 - 6 and indicates the protection against solids like dirt and dust. The second digit of the IP rating will be 0 – 9 and is the level of protection against liquids, like water. The highest IP ratings for tags would be a rating of 67, 68, or 69 depending on direct or indirect contact with liquids.
13).High Memory – Tags that are available with a higher User or EPC memory can be used to store increased data on the tag, such as service dates and complete item identification. While high memory is good for some applications, most RFID systems associate the tag ID in a database containing the same information by way of software. This frees up the memory on the tag and allows the tag to be read quicker.
As a service, OPP IOT can provide a variety of customized RFID tags that would meet your specifics needs and help to optimize your maintenance operations. When necessary, OPP IOT can develop new RFID tags that meet your unique material property or specific environmental requirements.
