RFID Canada – is introducing a new UHF Tag – the IronTag™.

The IronTagUHF transponder, is optimally engineered for high performance when mounted on metal surfaces. Originally designed for tracking aircraft parts, the rugged IronTag devices tolerate the harsh conditions of manufacturing and processing, as well as vehicle and equipment operation. They are the ideal tag for tracking metallic assets subject to demanding conditions, delivering:

  • Extreme durability
  • An exceptional size-to-performance ratio
  • Advanced anti-collision capability and fast data rate communication

The IronTag is waterproof; resistant to shock, vibration and chemical exposure; and able to withstand temperatures from -40°C to +180°C (-40°F to +356° F).

The compact unit measures only 53mm x 23mm x 7 mm (2.1” x 0.9” x 0.27”) and  when mounted on metal, delivers a read range of up to 4m (13ft). Available in an 896 MHz version to meet EU standards, or 915 MHz for NA standards, the contactless chip provides a 512-bit user memory in addition to 96-bit EPC and 64-bit TID. IronTag can be mounted with industrial glues, or adhered with the optional high-temperature-resistant adhesive sticker.

IronTag 176 transponders are compliant with UHF EPC Class 1 Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C, and meet ATA Spec 2000 and SAE AS5678 specifications.
