GAO RFID Introduces New On-Metal Gen 2 RFID Tags

Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) May 05, 2008 -- GAO RFID Inc. offers a new standard of excellence through the release of its novel line of Gen 2 UHF RFID tags designed for harsh environment and suitable for on-metal tagging. These passive RFID tags set the bar in providing dependable transmission of data in demanding industry conditions such as changing temperatures and mechanical stress. The line of transponders includes the small and durable (IP68) Ironside, the cost effective Survivor, and the light-weight and enduring Halo.

The Ironside has an impressive read range of up to eight meters (8m) on metal and can easily be affixed to any metal surface either mechanically or by using industrial adhesives. This small, fully encapsulated tag has been successfully used in asset tracking applications such as railway and warehousing solutions. This RFID tag successfully passed the rigorous testing requirements for Aerospace standard AS5678 specification.

The Survivor is another highly durable Class 1 Gen 2 hard tag suitable for on-metal mounting, but it may be used on any surface. This long read range passive tag offers the best performance-to-cost ratio in the industry. It has been successful deployed in container applications and is a suitable solution for tracking large and valuable assets such as vehicles or metal pipes.

The Halo RFID tag provides IP68 defenses from many harsh conditions through its light-weight yet high-strength temperature-resistant durable plastic housing. Its design enables easy attachment either through adhesive, tape or mechanically through its mounting holes. Sporting a read-range of three to four meters (3-4m) on-metal, this tag works well with either a fixed or handheld RFID reader and is ideally suited for many inventory and warehouse apps. Its design even makes it perfect solution for tracking IT assets such as routers or servers.
