Enhancing long range applications
In long-range applications, transponder type, readers’ and transponders’ respective positioning – and especially unique features of the installation environment – all will impact performance. Each contributes significantly to read range and therefore your application’s functional reliability. Download a guide for optimal positioning of long range readers and tags, how to identify important features in an installation environment and gauge your readers’ emission patterns for vehicle identification (AVI) applications.

Additionally, different EPC transponders are available designed to meet different needs. As with other RFID transponders, EPC transponders also come in robust forms made from different materials. For example, containers prone to impact might require large, tough EPC transponders attached by screw. Alternatively, flexible, washable silicone EPC transponders, attachable to clothing by sewing, permits hospitals to streamline their linen and clothing tracking.
In addition to transponder type, our guide also explains why a tag’s installation surface must be considered when choosing an EPC transponder for your application. For example, car windshields, need specific, specialized transponders that either won’t function or as well on other installation surfaces. If you must avoid drilling attachment screwholes in a surface, an EPC sticker offers a convenient option.
An excerpt below from our guide describes summary features of all EPC transponders we provide:
Idesco EPC Metal Tag ABS
Suitable for logistic applications, can be installed also on other than metal surfaces.
Idesco EPC Ultra Tag ABS
Robust, durable transponder, a little bit larger in size, suitable for marking cargo and containers. Suitable also for other surfaces than metal surfaces.
EPC Omni-ID IQ
Self-adhesive label transponder for logistics and different asset tracking applications of goods with metal surfaces.
Idesco EPC Windshield Label
Windshield label for vehicle identification applications. The transponder becomes disabled when removing, meaning that it can’t be removed and used again in another vehicle.
EPC Silicone tag WT-A521 GR
Flexible, washable silicone transponder for streamlining laundry logistics.
Cards for access control / combined access control and vehicle identification
ldesco EPC MIFARE Card ja EPC + HID Prox card
Convenient access and data collection with a combined access control / vehicle identification card. The card is readable with an EPC reader and a smart card or a prox card reader, meaning that users can access the parking lot and their workplace using the same card. Available with EPC and MIFARE® Classic or DESFire, or with EPC and HID Prox technologies.
Idesco EPC Sail Tag
Small EPC transponder for access control solutions.
How does RFID actually work, and what kind of features do transponders require to make it work? This article answers these questions by focusing on RFID’s transponders and their identification capability. If you are a system integrator, your own customers might find the points covered in this discussion helpful.
