IronTag® UHF transponders deliver exceptional performance on metal surfaces, and they are built to withstand vibration, shock, chemical exposure and fluctuating temperatures. The transponders enable radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging of metal equipment and components that are subject to severe conditions.
Originally designed for tracking aircraft parts, IronTag devices tolerate the harsh conditions of manufacturing and processing as well as vehicle and equipment operation. They handle temperatures from -40° F (-40° C) to 428° F (220° C), are waterproof up to IP69K (high-pressure, high-temperature washing), and withstand exposure to fuels, oils, salt water and ultraviolet light. They are resistant to pressure (>10 bars), vibration and steady flame for short periods.
Compact and powerful, these tags offer robust performance with read ranges of up to 13 ft (4 m). The 512-bit user memory and 96-bit EPC number are configurable to accommodate longer EPC codes. In addition, the tags offer anti-collision functionality, fast data rate communication, and optional password protection for added security.
The durable IronTag RFID tags mount to any metal surface with industrial glues or optional high-temperature stickers, making them ideal for logistics applications that track metal components through assembly, operation, maintenance and repair.
The patent-pending design meets or exceeds standards for the most demanding industries, including aircraft manufacturing and fleet management. It is also the ideal tag for metallic asset tracking applications where a small form factor and durability are vital.
