With up to 10 meter (32ft) read range on metal surfaces, UHF Class 1
Generation 2 compliant Confidex SteelWING has been designed to overcome the
challenges of metal asset tagging. The key design targets; high performance,
compact structure and cost-efficiency were achieved with SteelWING’s innovative
patent pending design. The light-weight tag has adhesive background and it can
be directly attached on metal surface – without any extra spacer
Before this, RFID labels could not be directly applied to metal. Many label solutions have been developed with the idea in mind that the RFID label has been lifted away from the proximity of metal surfaces. Typically such products work better the more space that’s left in between tag and metal. But the drawback of such labels is that when antenna bends closer to metal and the distance to metal reduces, the RFID label performance significantly decreases. Instead of avoiding metal contact, contact between the metal and the antenna of Confidex SteelWING actually improves the operational performance. Unlike its competitive products, Confidex SteelWING is truly a “metal-friendly” RFID label.
