The need for a robust radio frequency identification (RFID) solution is increasing with the substantial use of proximity technology. HID Keg Tag is a product by HID Global that carries both RAIN RFID as well as NFC. This single tag allows extensive supply chain management with the combination of both these technologies. HID Keg Tag will be a great fit for various industrial IoT applications. This chipset acts as a perfect fit for next-generation supply chain management, inventory tracking, and logistics.
Future Of Steel Kegs & Returnable Items
HID Keg Tag will be the key behind tracking and management into challenging environments. This tag will be seamless for connected solutions that require cloud communication. Therefore, HID Keg Tag fits well into contactless applications of returnable transport items (RTI).
HID Keg Tag will allow users to manage logistics of gas cylinders, kegs, or bulk containers. These tags can be attached on steel surfaces and allow long-range tracking of these items into the warehouse. Supply chains will be able to enhance their preparations, distributions, and shipping with these tags. Moreover, these tags will allow IoT advantages such as product authentication and direct tracking from en user’s smartphones.
Key Features Of HID Keg Tag
Merge of both RAIN RFID and NFC allows HID Keg Tag with a handful of advantages and features that were not offered on a single chip till the date. These key features bring the best of the world of RAIN RFID and NFC:
- Customer experience enhancement
Users can directly interact with HID Keg Tag using their smartphones as it carries NFC. As such, Inventory can be managed without any RFID readers.
- Traceability of logistics
HID Keg Tag offers faster & accurate RTI processing by communicating with multiple containers using RAIN RFID technology.
- Durable & equip
HID Global has built this product in such a way that it is robust enough to withstand harsh environments and chemical processes. In addition to that, they are designed in a curvature form so they can stick to any round surfaces.
RAIN RFID & NFC Convergence
RAIN RFID tags operate at ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) while NFC operates at high-frequency (HF). RAIN RFID enables HID Keg Tags to interact with a more extended range for data reading and bulk scanning. At the same time, NFC serves nearby communication applications such as tapping. Specific properties of both the chipset allow users with each particular advantage. Industrial Returnable Transport Items (RTI) can benefit exclusively from tracing and management. As such, HDI Keg Tag is the perfect choice for those RTI needs with long-range communication as well as nearby communication.
Most often, picking one particular technology would restrict product accessibility. HID Keg Tag allows users the best UHF & HF technologies, allowing them to increase the supported user applications. Such an offering will potentially result in more of these converged communication modules and tags. Similar innovations can only solve the rising need for various communication provisions. These solutions will need to evolve as the complexity of future system architectures grows continuously.
