A manufacturer of on-metal radio frequency identification (RFID) tags for asset-tracking has the maritime container shipping sector in its sights after launching a new product series.
Xerafy has added new additions to its Trak Series that are more versatile and accommodate multiple attachment methods for more applications.
The new Container Trak 902-928MHz tag has a 20-meter read range and a new anti-UV industry grade polymer casing that is IP68 rated, meaning it can withstand harsh outdoor environments and exposure to water and contaminants.
Container Trak tags, attached by using a rivet hole, a cable tie, or with high-performance adhesives, have an operating temperature range of -40 degrees Celcius to +85 degrees Celcius.
Xerafy will officially debut the new tags at the RFID Tomorrow conference in Dusseldorf over September 27-28, 2017.

The new level of durability means that a tag can last up to 10 years in harsh industrial environments.
RFID tags can be attached to vehicle chassis and used in trailer tracking, unit load device identification, logistics and yard management.
Dennis Khoo, Xerafy CEO and Founder, said: “With the launch of our new and upgraded Trak Series tags, our family of RAIN RFID tags is complete.
“These new tags have expanded our high-performance RFID solutions to a wider variety of applications and environments.
“With the release of the new Trak Series tags, we can help our clients extend the value of our high-performance RFID tags, whether they are used in a warehouse, on a vehicle chassis, or exposed to water, extreme temperatures, or other harsh conditions.”
