Flexible ferrite-based NFC tags for multiple use

Industry segments: Industrial Applications, Media and Document Management

Avery Dennison Smartrac’s Block On-Metal tags have been specifically designed to work on metallic objects. They open the door to multiple industrial, retail and B2C applications involving the tagging of metal surfaces that need to be identified or interacted with, such as metallic parts, spare parts, signs, tools, machines, and even domestic items.

In its Block On-Metal tags, Avery Dennison Smartrac combines a performance-optimized antenna design with a thin layer of flexible ferrite material, which isolates the magnetic field from the metal surface. Ferrite redirects the reader’s inductive field, and prevents energy from being wasted as heat within the metallic surface.

The flexible ferrite-based NFC inlays are suitable for roll-to-roll manufacturing processes, which make onward processing much easier and more cost-effective, and allow converters to overprint the inlays if required.

The ICode SLIX2 IC is the newest member of NXP’s SLIX product family. The chip is fully backwards compatible to SLIX and offers an increased user memory size, along with new outstanding features and performance, such as NXP originality signature, increased speed for inventory management, increased read range, increased robustness against detuning effects, flexible user memory segmentation with separate access conditions and password protected on chip service cycle counter and a 2.5 kbit user memory size.

The inlays and tags are compliant with ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management. This ensures a reliable and state-of-the-art product that meets a variety of application needs, where high performance is a critical parameter.

Block On-Metal: Bringing NFC benefits to multiple applications

NFC and metal surfaces have a somewhat troublesome relationship, because metal tends to “soak up” the reader’s inductive field. Smartrac has solved that problem, and now launches its new Block On-Metal NFC tag that offers excellent performance when tagging metallic items.
