The Dogbone RFID tag design offers up to 240-bit of EPC memory and an additional 64-bit locked tag identifier code and 32-bit serial number. This latest development from UPM Raflatac is cost effective and offers a printable white synthetic face that can be printed over with an RFID thermal transfer label printer for encrypting and printing of user readable information.
The tags can be read through a covering of frost, humid air and wet surfaces such as packaging and ice and complies with all of the GS1 EPC Global standards. Until recently RFID tags within a freezer environment have been unreliable and impractical due to the tag freezing and frost and ice reducing the read range. This latest RFID tag from UPM Raflatac has already proven its reliability overseas within frozen goods distribution centres and is now ready for the Australian market.
The RFID tags can be placed on pallets, cartons and even product packaging and does not require "line-of-sight" to be read. If RFID readers are installed onto the forklifts, then the entire process of receiving, dispatching and storing of frozen goods can be automated. This system eliminates data errors from manual input, provides a platform for instant real-time locating of products and product movement information and reduces labour costs.
