How to choose a tag for metal application?

1. What kind of metal tag will be recommended?

To choose a label in a particular application, many factors need to be considered, such as the price of the label, the physical size and shape of the label; but the reading distance and the material of the label, the material of the mounting surface, the mounting method and the surrounding are more to be considered. The environmental impact (including metal, humidity, current and other factors), these factors are related to the durability and read and write performance of the tag. To achieve high-quality and reliable label reading and writing effects, it is necessary to analyze multiple variables in the environment.

  2. Why is the reading and writing distance of the tag different from the experimental data?

  The label will make certain design adjustments according to the application environment, such as adding a protective coating or creating a gap to avoid the label being directly installed on the metal. These practices may reduce the performance of the label, so that the actual performance is less different from the originally designed performance.

   In most cases, the label will lose a certain reading distance due to the application environment, especially when the label is embedded in metal or installed in a multi-metal environment. Ordinary tags will maintain a certain performance for the time being, but if you want to achieve sustained and stable tag performance, you must choose a tag that matches the application environment.

   3. How to install tags on assets?

   After ensuring the read and write performance of tags in harsh environments, the problem of installing tags followed one after another, which is also one of the biggest challenges in RFID applications. High-performance metal labels can withstand high temperatures or immerse into liquids, but the back glue of the label may not be able to withstand it. The most ideal application is to embed the tag in the asset to ensure that the tag is not affected by the external environment to the greatest extent, but in practical applications, the embedded method does not necessarily meet the actual needs.

   Adhesive is one of the most commonly used methods when installing labels. When choosing adhesive, a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the application environment is required. The extremely cold environment will also affect the performance of the adhesive and cause the label to become brittle and fragile. Therefore, it is necessary to fully consider the storage environment of the label and the temperature of the work process. Not all applications can use adhesive to install the label, other common installation methods include bolting, loop suspension or epoxy glue fixing.

   4. What are the potential sources of interference in the application environment?

   The label is not directly attached to the metal does not mean that it will not be interfered by the metal. If there is a lot of metal around the asset where the tag is installed, or the asset will go through a multi-metal storage environment during the movement, the use of the tag must be carefully judged to ensure stable and reliable performance.

   5. Can high temperature resistant labels be used in all high temperature applications?

   is not necessarily. Many different applications require labels to withstand high temperatures. For example, a label designed to be used in a dry heat environment cannot be used in a high temperature and high pressure steam sterilization environment, nor may it meet other types of high temperature applications.

   The common problems of choosing RFID anti-metal tags are shared here. Aotaige anti-metal tags are commonly used in asset management, logistics management, product component process management, warehouse management, document management, etc. The products can be customized.
