New RAIN RFID label family for fast and reliable logistics applications | 10-03-2020 |
Confidex, a leading designer and supplier of short-range wireless identification solutions, has announced the release of its Confidex Go Family of RFID labels for high-volume logistics and other applications. The tags are targeted at industries that need a high volume of labels at an affordable cost, but without sacrificing performance, says the company. They are due to be rolled out at MODEX in Atlanta and LogiMAT in Germany during March.
Go products include a variety of industry- and application-specific labels:
Crosswave Classic provides 360-degree readability and a modular size. It is a dual-dipole label for logistics applications and provides a good reading performance and radiation pattern;
Casey is a disposable, high-performance label for supply chain and logistics applications. The label is waterproof and works with high-liquid-content goods;
Leaf is a paper-based, sustainable label for short-term logistics applications. The eco-friendly label is plastic-free, includes a printed antenna and water-soluble adhesive and is suitable for indirect contact with food;
eKanban GTL is a master label designed for Global Transport Label applications. This plug-in label for transport packaging units or plastic load carriers, eKanban SLC is a single plug-in label designed for Small Load Carrier applications. Both comply with VDA recommendations 4994 and 5501;
Ferrowave Classic is optimized for high volume packaging and component tracking applications for on-metal RFID labels for non-harsh industrial environments.
Confidex Go labels are also designed to perform on a wide range of materials, including metal, plastics, paper, and cardboard. The Casey, Crosswave, and eKanban labels can be provided in customer-specific sizes depending on how much information needs to be printed on the face of the label.
Timo Lindström, CEO of Confidex said, “With Confidex Go, we combine our experience of both RF design and optimized end-to-end high volume production. The Confidex Go labels provide an industrial level of reliability in challenging environments, but in a more flexible and affordable format for emerging high-volume applications across the supply chain and can be customized for each organization’s unique needs.”
