RFID Asset Tracking


Tracking metallic objects - from machinery
to pylons, warehouse racks and containers

Essen RFID’s METALLICA™ tags provide enhanced read range compared to standard passive UHF tags for similar usage - over 20 feet with fixed readers and 12 feet with hand held readers, under European ETSI standards.

Absolute reliability and accuracy, with superior read rates on or around metallic surfaces and having an outstanding performance to size ratio. Rigid cased, robust tag is also suitable for use in harsh or moist working conditions. Rivet/screw mounting with optional adhesive backing.

Having an enhanced read range and reduced size, METALLICA™ tags combine the best of both worlds - tags that can be read at longer distances, but having a smaller footprint. This makes them ideal for:
- Cargo and container tracking
- Industrial equipment
- Heavy machinery
- Unit load devices
- Girders, angles and pylons
- Warehouse racks and storage
