Xtreme Metal Tag designed for mounting on metal substrates in challenging environments
- Avery Dennison RFID, a business of Avery Dennison (NYSE: AVY), and Xtreme RFID, a Cascade Engineering company, have collaborated to create the highly-durable, RFID-based Xtreme Metal Tag. To create the tag, Avery Dennison RFID’s AD-843 is encased in plastic via a custom injection molding process developed by Xtreme RFID. The finished Xtreme Metal Tag is 5.75L x 2.4W x 0.31H inches.
Mike Lewis, Xtreme RFID Business Unit Manager says, “The AD-843 was clearly the best choice for the Xtreme Metal Tag. It meets or exceeds each one of our requirements including a minimum 6-foot read range on metal substrates. Since metal can impede radio waves, we were additionally pleased with the AD-843 performance. And, the AD-843’s ample surface area and robust chip-to-antenna connection provide superior durability during our proprietary converting process.”
George Dyche, Avery Dennison RFID Product Manager comments, “We felt confident the AD-843 could deliver on Xtreme RFID’s high performance criteria. Mike Lewis’ team put the tag through some pretty intense testing in both laboratory and real-world conditions and the AD-843 passed with flying colors.”
