HID Global Epoxy UHF RFID Tag (Higgs 3)



HID Global Epoxy UHF RFID Tag (Higgs 3)

HID Global Epoxy UHF RFID Tags are constructed for optimal performance under harsh conditions. The housings of Epoxy tags protect advanced integrated chips, enabling the use of RFID technology to accelerate logistics speed, while improving data accuracy in a broad spectrum of rugged industrial applications. These tags are resistant to fuels, mineral oils, petroleum, and salt mist. They repel moisture - even in high temperature, high pressure washes. Epoxy tags can tolerate repeated autoclaving in medical applications, and plastic injection molding processes for permanent embedding into industrial components, equipment, or containers. Each micro thin Epoxy tag has a smooth surface, which may be imprinted with customized visual codes or artwork. These durable UHF tags may be adhered with glue, secured with screws, or embedded in a custom housing, depending on the application.
