HID Corporation has introduced the newest member of its family of asset tracking products, the eProx Tag. The tiny eProx Tag can be fastened to the nonmetallic interior or exterior of almost any product. The tag uses the same radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology that has made HID cards the global standard for access control. The tag allows OEMs to add patented HID proximity technology to almost any product without the need for product redesign or retrofit.
As a passive RFID device, the eProx Tag requires no additional power to operate. It was designed for use in applications that traditionally have used bar code technology. Some applications include high-value construction pipes, industrial material containers, key fobs and mobile test and measurement equipment. Unlike bar codes, the eProx Tag does not need to be visible when read and can contain significantly more information than bar code labels can. It can operate in the harshest of conditions from -10 to 70°C.
Each eProx Tag can be individually coded, with over 137 billion unique codes available, by HID or OEMs who have an HID ProxProgrammer. It comes with a lifetime warranty against workmanship or materials failures and is available for purchase now from HID.
