Can be embedded in metallic assets High performance-to-size ratio Superior identification when embedded Reliable in the harshest environments
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology continues to expand past supply chain to moredemanding applications in manufacturing, healthcare, pharmaceutical, automotive and rugged assettracking. This whitepaper addresses the applications where the RFID tag will face high temperatures,autoclave processes, harsh cleaning cycles, and automotive manufacturing processes. The paperintroduces a newly enhanced RFID-in-metal tag family, the X II Series that allows implementation of theRFID tag directly on the asset early in the production process to provide management with trackinginformation as specific to better identify where the product is, where this product is stored and detectbottlenecks within the manufacturing process.RFID gives the energy industry the information that fuels efficient production and maintenance processes, and the control to protect safety in remote and hazardous locations. Rugged, reliable and innovative RFID tags can go places where bar codes can’t, which gives technicians, inspectors and other workers the ability to identify assets, check service records and get other information out of extreme environments. Xerafy is a leading innovator in RFID solutions with the energy industry, with tags that can be embedded directly into tools, equipment, pipes and other assets, models that withstand extreme temperatures and other environmental hazards, and high-memory options for storing life cycle data, inspection histories and MRO information.The Nano-iN offers an outstanding performance-to-size ratio of up to eight feet while flush mounted in a metal object. The Nano-iN can be a potential substitute to RFID-on-metal tags even in applications where read distance cannot be compromised such as IT assets and metallic equipment. The flush mounting of RFID tags makes them visible to RFID-based inventory systems immediately upon installation, and the RFID tags are protected from the possibility of damage.
