The high-temperature tag is commonly used for applications where users need to track parts and get traceability of the manufacturing process. This is needed for quality improvement and error proofing, as well as maximizing the reusability of product carriers like pallets or conveyor segments. A typical application is painting and coating operations where heat sealing, oven drying, or curing may occur. In this type of application, the data carriers are not active during high-temperature exposure and therefore data is reliably preserved. Reading and writing data usually takes place outside of the high-temperature areas at temperatures of 70°C (158°F) or under. The tag also allows unlimited reading and writing of data with user memory up to 112 numerical bytes or ASCII characters.
Integrating all popular communication protocols, this high-temperature RFID data carrier can communicate with all popular control platforms. Compatible read/write heads are available in many sizes and configurations to fit most applications.
