HID Global Seal Tag edTamper UHF RFID Tag

HID Global's Seal Tag edTamper are tamper evident RAIN® UHF transponders that allow digital detection of their seal status via RFID without a line of sight. Visualizing the tag is not necessary to identify broken seals. Seal Tag edTamper are easily affixed by closing the robust wire loop through an opening similar to securing a padlock. After being sealed, a bit in the tag’s memory indicates this status and can be detected with standard RAIN UHF RFID readers. Once secure, the loop cannot be opened without breaking the wire. However, the pull strength has been optimized so that a human can break it when needed (e.g. to pull out the life vest), but the tag does not accidentally open. 

The Seal Tag edTamper will continue to send its ID, but in addition digitally alerts a different status if the seal is compromised. Therefore, identifying a broken seal among a large amount of sealed items is quick and easy with the swipe of a UHF reader. This unique feature is in contrast to visually tamper evident tags that need physical examination to detect a broken loop or electrically tamper evident tags that stop working when the seal is broken. Typical applications include sensitive and highly-secure items like, aircraft life vests or weapon/ equipment racks that require periodic safety and security checks.
