Dallas, TX, United States, 2010/10/04 - No bits and bytes around it, the embedded “ iN” family of tags is a big step towards enabling manufacturers with source RFID tagging for track-and-trace and product authentication.
XERAFY “iN” family of products, is the first UHF RFID tags that can be embedded in metal assets without sacrificing read performance. Compliant with ISO 18000-6C EPC Class 1 Gen 2 standards, XERAFY’s revolutionary technology allows a UHF RFID tag to be flush-mounted inside metallic assets, and opens the door to new and innovative RFID applications and solutions previously unimaginable with existing technology.
“Our company continues to focus on RFID solutions for hard to track assets.” States Dennis Khoo, CEO of XERAFY. “The “iN” family can be embedded pre-and post-production to RFID enable bolts, firearms, tools, gas cylinders and electronics.”
The family of small and rugged tags include the Pico-iN, the smallest RFID-in-metal tag at 0.47x0.28x0.12in (12x7x3mm), with a read range up to 2.5 feet (0.75m). The Nano-iN, at 0.98x0.35x0.12in (25x9x3mm), provides a read range up to 10 feet (3m) and the Micro-iN with an impressive read range of 20 feet (6m) for its 1.18x1.18x0.12in (30x30x3mm) size.
Key Features of the -iN Family:
• Able to be flush-mounted in metal and set in epoxy for a permanent attachment
• Drastically reduces damage from normal wear and tear from environmental conditions and human factors including deliberate tampering
• Enables source RFID tagging for difficult to tag metallic assets
• Resists application temperatures up to +482oF (250oC)
• RoHS Compliant
• IP68 Classification
“The ability to embed a small form EPC RFID transponder without sacrificing performance, particularly in metals, should create significant opportunity in a diversity of markets” according to Drew Nathanson, Director of Research Operations at VDC Research Group. “From IT asset tracking to WIP to Consumer Electronics and beyond, a high performing embedded EPC tag is expected to not only provide track-and-trace functionality, but also further enable source-tagging and authentication.”
