GAO RFID offers a collection of Rugged RFID Tags with different protocols that are designed to track assets in the roughest and most extreme environments. The rugged RFID tags are available at a variety of frequencies such as UHF 433 MHz and UHF 860-960 MHz frequency range. Most of these devices have ATEX Zone 0 and ICEPEX certification and are also compliant with M1 F08, CE, and RoHS directives. Additionally, some of these tags support various protocols such as ISO18000-6C, EPC Class 1 Gen2, and ISO 14443A. The rugged RFID tags are designed to endure applications such as package and material tracking, car windshield mounting, and corrosive heavy industry environments. Furthermore, the tags offer a variety of memory capacity options that include EPC 96 bits (Extensible to 512 bits), user 512 bits, TID 64 bits, and CRC 32 bits. Another key feature of the rugged tags is that most of them have an operating temperature that ranges from -40°F to 185°F (-40°C to +85 °C). Also, tags of this kind have IP65, IP67 and IP68 protection standards by which they can withstand immersion in water and also are protected from dust and rust.
GAO RFID offers rugged RFID tags in different form factors and materials. In order to withstand extreme conditions these tags are built with resistant materials including nylon, PP plastics, Glass fiber – PCB FR4 and ceramic tag embed in metal. Additionally, they come in convenient colors such as white, black, red and yellow to fit into different environments.
The rugged RFID tags are used for applications in rugged and extreme environments. These tags can be used for many different applications including oil & gas industry, mining, use in metal, monitoring temperature, tracking or authentication of individuals for access to equipment, textile rental, and laundry industries. Other applications for the rugged RFID tags include logistics, warehouse management, supply chain, medical equipment management, container management, localization of high-value assets, returnable transport items tracking and construction helmets and manufacturing equipment tracking.
