Omni-ID Launches RFID Tags for Manufacturing, Transportation and Defense Industries

By Shamila Janakiraman September 15, 2009
Omni-ID, a supplier of high-performance passive UHF RFID tags, has announced a suite of new products which are designed for the manufacturing, transportation and defense industries.

According to a company press release, the new Omni-ID, Omni-ID Max HD and Omni-ID Max Pro RFID tags have been specially engineered to meet market demands like functionality suiting all geographical regions, optimum performance near metals and liquids and recording read distances in on-metal-only environments.

The Omni-ID Manufacturing and Transportation product line leverages the Omni-ID technology platform design which can overcome limitations faced by traditional passive UHF RFID. This enables the company to meet demands for longer read distances, more reliability and interoperability with other RFID hardware and software.

“Our next-generation passive RFID technology offers an unprecedented opportunity for tracking high-value assets in manufacturing, transportation/logistics, and defense markets,” remarked Tom Pavela, president and CEO, Omni-ID.

“By evolving our technology platform and designing a new suite of RFID tags specifically geared to meet customer needs in these markets, Omni-ID provides exceptional global broadband accuracy and high performance in environments where passive RFID performance was previously unreliable,” added Pavela.

The Omni-ID’s new passive RFID tags include Omni-ID Ultra which features longest read range and allows its use in tracking containers, vehicles and cargo stored in outdoor environments. Its heavy-duty casing offers high durability and provides easy identification of assets. These tags can be used in international tracking of applications and can be used on different materials and mixed-use environments, explained company sources.

Omni-ID Max HD is suited for on-metal performance and offers a rugged encasement which is durable and heat resistant and can be used in high impact situations like exposure to adverse weather conditions. Its global functionality offers broadband performance so a single tag is suitable for world wide use. The tag is useful in containers, cargo, racks and bins which are moved between regions using different operating frequencies.

Omni-ID said that the Omni-ID Max Pro offers long read reach and is also rugged and hence resistant to vibration or impact. It is ideal for retail warehouse inventory tracking as it offers comparatively greater read range for on-metal applications.

Pavela added that the Omni-ID’s Ultra, Max HD and Max Pro tags will enable new applications, from tracking cargo and transportation vehicles to warehouse inventory environments irrespective of the geographical region and surrounding environment.
