Press Release – Button Tag
RFID BUTTON Tag
September 7th, 2012 – Toronto, ON Canada
RFID Canada – is introducing a new HF Tag – the BUTTON RFID Tag.
The BUTTON Tag is a unique button-shaped HF RFID tag and is part of the Logi Tag family of HID Global RFID tags. Designed to enable uniform companies, commercial cleaners and medical facilities to automatically track clothing, linens, rags, surgical sponges and other assets, resulting in more accurate, efficient inventory management.
The BUTTON Tag is designed towithstand the rigors of immersion, high pressure and extreme temperatures.
Uniform management companies can more accurately control lifecycles, increasing garment productivity, reduce throughput and decreasing stock requirements per customer. As part of a commercial laundry system, these tags ensure accurate item counts and documentation, enabling automatic billing and real-time inventory control.
Medical facilities can better ensure patient and staff safety, through improved infection control processes. On disposable assets, transponders enable faster, more accurate surgical counts. Organizations can effectively track reusable assets and verify cleaning and sterilization procedures.
The BUTTON Tag is virtually indistinguishable from ordinary buttons, and can be sewn onto clothing with standard stitching equipment.
- Inconspicuous – compact form factors conceal easily in clothing and textile assets.
- Durable – resistant to extreme temperature, chemicals, fluids, industrial detergents and high pressure.
- Powerful – rapid, accurate asset identification and data storage, with anti-collision functionality for simultaneous processing of multiple items.
The BUTTON Tag is manufactured by HID Global.
