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.
