HIGH-TEMPERATURE RFID

For assets in applications such as automotive manufacturing, paint shops, metal foundries, tire manufacturing, injection molding, and oil and gas drilling.

With typical application temperatures ranging from 85°C to 250°C, tags are ruggedized using packaging materials such as ceramic, which Xerafy introduced in 2010.

Xerafy offers on-metal tags that are field-proven for extreme heat. They are available in a variety of form factors, frequencies, and case materials. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.

LONG-RANGE RFID

Long-range passive RFID powers outdoor and indoor applications in the field for Manufacturing, Inventory, Logistics.

 

Passive RFID technology has the advantage of not requiring a battery. As a result, a tag's life expectancy frequently exceeds that of the asset it is mounted on, while its read range varies depending on the power of the RFID reader and the presence of metal in the application environment.

 

Over time, the technology has supplanted other types of RFID such as High Frequency and Low Frequency as the standard RF identification for industrial asset, with passive UHF RFID lowering the entry barrier for Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS).

With its record-breaking long ranges for both metal and non-metallic assets, Xerafy has helped to shift expectations for what Passive UHF RFID can deliver. Long-range RFID tags from Xerafy are available in a variety of sizes, frequencies, and attachment options to suit any lifecycle and workflow. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.

SMALL RFID TAGS

Mission-critical systems such as Industrial Tool Tracking, MRO Tool Control, Surgical Tracking, rely on small RFID tags for item-level asset identification.

Aside from size, the challenge with small RFID is overall performance, with the read-range and accuracy of the tag being proportional to its size. Not all RFID systems can track at close ranges, and Xerafy's early innovation with the world's smallest RFID tags, as well as with In-Metal tags that can be embedded or flush-mounted into the asset, helped break the traditional range/size ratio barrier for RFID systems.

Small RFID Tags from Xerafy are available in a variety of form factors, profiles, and tagging solutions. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.

AUTOCLAVABLE RFID TAGS

Medical device manufacturers and hospitals use Autoclavable RFID for identification and traceability during sterilization processing.​

A combination of heat, steam, fluids, gas and irradiation are used in medical autoclaves and sterilizers to kill microorganisms and sterilize medical devices and instruments.

Autoclavable RFID tags from Xerafy are qualified to survive and perform through the repeated sterilization cycles

of hospital's CSSP/SPD re-processing. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.

DURABLE RFID TAGS

Durable RFID tags are used in some of the most difficult environments, including industrial autoclaves, manufacturing processes, oil fields, and offshore drilling platforms.

Tag durability is typically achieved through the use of a combination of packaging and casing materials to protect the tag from shocks, corrosion, pressure, and water. Xerafy consistently goes above and beyond, leveraging its expertise to engineer application and RF technology innovations like its antenna-free design encased in extra-strong solid metal.
 

Extra Durable RFID Tags from Xerafy are available in a variety of form factors and tagging options. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.

EMBEDDABLE RFID

Embeddable RFID can be flush-mounted into metal or added to objects through injection and compression molding.

End users deploy embeddable tags to retrofit RF identification and locating capabilities to their assets, while manufacturers add smart IoT capabilities via embedding or injection molding.

In terms of RF performance, the prevalence of metal in industrial environments poses a significant technical challenge. Xerafy’s innovation in the field changed the paradigm by making full use of the metal in the asset to increase the performance of its In-Metal embeddable tags.

Xerafy’s Embeddable RFID tags and inlays are suited for applications at both point-of-manufacture and point-of-use. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.

PRINTABLE RFID LABELS

Printable RFID tags provide durable visibility in the field for Global supply chains, Parts management, IT assets, management of Returnable Transport Items, Healthcare supplies.

RFID has proven to be a compelling solution to barcode identification's limitations in terms of line of sight, bulk scanning, and automation. Printable RFID labels support hybrid RFID and optical data in the form of human-readable data or Barcodes / QR codes. While labels can be supplied printed and encoded, several Industrial RFID printer manufacturers, including SATO, Zebra, and Printronix, specialize in equipment that can print and encode tags on-site.

​​

Printable RFID labels from Xerafy are available as ready-to-print flexible labels that can perform both on-metal and off-metal. They are available in a variety of sizes, frequencies, and durability levels, as well as ready-to-convert off-metal inlays. In addition, Custom RFID Tags design capabilities are available to meet specific needs.
