How does rfid tags work on metal?
RFID tags are designed for wide and different industry, some are made to endure extreme temperatures while some are made for animals, and let’s not forget there are special tags for metal products known as Metal RFID tags. RFID anti metal tag adds a kind of anti metal material (a special absorbing material – Ferrit) on the original basis, which can prevent the tag from sticking to metal objects and failure.
Metal RFID tags is a UHF Hard Tag, operating frequency 860~960 mhz, Complaint with EPC global UHF class 1 Gen 2 / ISO 18000-6c protocol
What’s the capabilities of Metal RFID Tag?
These Metal RFID Tags are waterproof and shockproof making them fit for harsh outdoor environments. Also, as much as these tags are capable of resisting any harm from hot, dry weather, they work well in colder environments as well.
For quick installing, you can fix the rfid metal tag via an adhesive or a screw, on any metal objects or equipment.
Why use RFID anti metal tags ？
RFID Metal Tag was specially designed for metal and other complex environments. It has the characteristics of long reading distance, high sensitivity and easy installation. RFID metal tags do not need batteries, memory can be repeatedly erased more than 10000 times, effective service life of more than 10 years, cost-effective. It is especially suitable for various metal environments and can be easily applied to metal asset and equipment management, medical device management, and other occasions.
Applications of the Metal RFID Tag
Metal Asset Management
RFID anti metal tags are used to identify the fixed assets or metal equipment, and RFID reader is used to collect data to complete the daily management and inventory of fixed assets in the routing inspection. The whole process tracking and information management of the service cycle and use status of fixed assets are realized.
Real time collection of asset quantity, type and other information in the control area, query of asset movement or use track, realization of asset out of position alarm prompt, real-time monitoring of assets to be tracked and track query and other functions.
Moreover, It can work in high temperature environment with stable performance. It is very suitable for IT assets that need small RFID tags, such as laptops device , tablets PC, switch, server case etc.
Medical Device Management
RFID technology has a spacious application in medical/ healthcare field, can help hospitals achieve smart medical treatment and intelligent management of medical things, and support the digital collecting, transmission, storage, and sharing of medical information, equipment information, drug information, personnel information and management information in hospital.
The equipments of hospital are usually placed in each department of each floor. The unique ID identification can be executed by fixing RFID metal tag on the equipment, and RFID tag can be read via RFID handheld reader. The daily flow of equipment can be managed in all directions. Equipment can be tracked in the processing of purchaseing, registering, collecting, allocating, maintaining, inspecting, monitoring and counting.from which highly improves the safety management and work efficiency.
Each equipment in routing inspection and maintenance work, also can real-time write the corresponding information to avoid the equipment management omission. At the same time, after the medical liability accident related to the equipment occurs, it can better trace the source and find the root cause of the problem.
Fixing the rfid tag on the tool, the UHF reader can quickly read the location the tool corresponding to the tag from a long disance, so as to achieve the goal of rapid inventory and the tool management and maintenance of the tool cabinet.
Our ultra-thin PCB metal tags are excellent suitable for tool tracking, Mold management, Gun management, etc.
How to choose appropriate RFID metal tags for your application?
To choose a correct rfid metag in your application, we need consider many factors, which may cause tag’s difference in material, shape, size ant cost, etc. It’s not the thing that only require the anti-metal tags working on the surface of the metal, we need consider whole envirnment, the tag is not directly fixed on the metal surface doesnot say that it will not affected by metal, on the other hand, the rfid metall are also affected if there are lots of metal aound where the tag installed.
If you need the help of how to choose correct rfid metal in your applications, please donot hesitate to contact us, we are always professional here for you.
