Readable on all worldwide frequencies: The new RFID DistaFerr Global Label from Schreiner ProTech
With another new product development from its proven “RFID on Metal” label family, Schreiner ProTech (Oberschleißheim, Germany) has solved a further challenge posed by globalisation: The ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global Label has an integrated dual-band antenna that enables reading of the two frequency bands, ETSI and FCC. This makes the label suitable for the frequencies commonly used around the globe and ensures reliable readability on all metallic substrates.
In RFID technology, two different frequency bands are used worldwide: ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) in Europe and FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in America and Asia. Consequently, if a component is exported to several regions it requires diverse RFID labels. The new ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global Label provides an efficient and cost-effective solution because it covers both frequency ranges.
Like all “RFID on Metal” labels, the new ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global label, due to specifically used shielding materials, guarantees reliable readability on metal components, containers and transport items. The 50x40mm RFID-Label is only 1.7mm thick and has read range of up to three metres. In the long-range version, read range is up to six metres.
The ((rfid))-DistaFerr Global label is a good alternative to hard tags, can be custom-printed and programmed on-site, is automatically dispensed off the roll and easy to apply. It is ideally suited for use in process automation and logistics applications.
