William Frick & Company offers the industry’s only all-metal RFID tag for harsh, high-temperature industrial environments

We strive to exceed previous high-temperature limits for RFID tag solutions

Today William Frick & Company, a leading supplier of Radio Frequency ID (RFID) technology, unveiled the Armored 300C RFID tag for extreme high-temperature applications. The Armored 300C solution is the only available metal RFID asset tag, not just metal-mounted, which makes it ideally suited to such harsh environments as manufacturing paint lines, construction, and oil and gas.

Frick’s Armored 300C RFID tag is made of high-temperature ceramic coated steel to withstand the most severe industrial environments. The tag can be bolted or welded directly onto any metal surface, and it offers a 360 degree read profile for exceptional read/write performance from all angles and directions, at long distances.

“The Armored 300C tag is positioned to be the leader in RFID for harsh environments, filling a void for automotive manufacturing paint lines and other industries in need of reliable, welded metal tag solutions,” said the inventor of the tag, Dr. Patrick King, Technologies ROI, LLC. “We strive to exceed previous high-temperature limits for RFID tag solutions.”

Reliability testing has demonstrated that the Armored 300C RFID tag can withstand long-term exposure to temperatures ranging from -40°F (-40°C) to 570°F (300°C). The tag is compliant with the EPCGlobal Class 1 Gen2 standards communication standards, ISO 17665 and ISO 11135 Sterilization standards, and ATEX. Frick will demonstrate the Armored 300C RFID tag and their large SmartMark™ RFID portfolio for the oil and gas industry including the RFID Frac Tag, Impact Resistant RFID Tag, and Down Hole RFID Tag in Booth #7612 at the Offshore Technology Conference OTC2013 , May 6 – 9, 2013 in Houston, Texas.
