Industry segment: Animal Identification
Smartrac's innovative Eartrace® Male Flag is designed to meet rugged environmental conditions in the livestock industry. It offers superior read range through RAIN RFID (UHF) technology and takes ear tags to a new level for convenient and reliable usage.
Smartrac is extending its comprehensive product range with the new RAIN RFID ear tag with a chip module that is inductively coupled to an embroidered RFID antenna. The innovative tag which compromises following benefits: compared to traditional etched antennas, Smartrac’s wire-made embroidered antenna offers more resistance against fractures or disruption in the antenna structure - effects that would compromise the tag’s reliability in its hard day-to-day use. The embroidered antenna wire is affixed to the carrier material - thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) foil – using the state-of-the-art “Tailored Wire Placement” technique.
Smartrac's Eartrace Male Flag has a compact hang tag size of 60 x 76 mm with firmly fitted pin and is equipped with Impinj Monza R6-P chip. The integrated circuit comes with an autotune feature, which helps the ear tag product to work at peak efficiency, even in rapidly changing environments. It offers additional add-on user memory and on-demand memory configuration as well as a kill function and easy access control to change tag information for store data, if required. Based on RAIN RFID technology the Eartrace Male Flag’s read distance under normal conditions is approximately five meters / 15 feet.
