Wide variety of tags to choose from

Designed to meet the most challenging of environments, the range comprises a wide variety of tags, each with different attributes suitable for a wide variety of hazardous area applications.

EXO® – Deployed today in some of the harshest environments on earth, the Exo range are the most rugged passive RFID tags in the industry. Exo tags provide the durability of an encased RFID tag for applications requiring a small footprint in a harsh environment. Various sizes are offered for tracking industrial assets, including tools, and small containers and RTIs in manufacturing.

IQ® – This line of low-profile and printable on-metal RFID labels are used primarily for tracking IT Assets in datacenters and offices. With print, peel and stick flexibility, tagging IT Assets is simple, cost effective, and efficient. With global frequencies and balanced performance for both on/off metal, this broad range of passive RFID label products come in various sizes and read ranges.

FIT® – With the highest size to performance ratio in the industry, the FIT range of tags includes a wide variety of the smallest, lowest profile tags on the market. From the flexibility of on/off metal performance to the ability to embed at the point of manufacture, these tags are ideal for tool and rental equipment tracking.

ADEPT® – From a rubberised tag to fit industrial hoses, to a strap attachment tag for large cylinders and a steel-encased tag for very heavy industry uses, the Adept family of tags is designed to meet specialist use cases or non-traditional applications.
