New Metal Tag Designed For Tough Manufacturing Environments

Tags work with metallic surfaces.

Aptly named "Ironside," the new EPC Class 1 Gen 2 high performance transponder can work on metallic objects under tough conditions. Created by Nokia, Finland-based Confidex, the tag can operate at temperatures ranging from -40C to +100C.

Operating at frequencies between 865-868MHz or 902-928MHz, it has a read range of four to six meters.

The tag was designed for the petrochemical, automotive and maritime industries. It can also be used in the aerospace industry as the tag uses passive UHF technology.
