Improved efficiency for oil and gas producers to identify valuable assets in the field are announced: three new Radio Frequency Identification tags.
WoW Tags can be welded onto any metal part. They combine toughness and durability of steel with RFID benefits. The highly readable WoW uses an MSOP chip. Its frequency is UHF Class 1, Gen 2/ISO 18000-6c compliant. It can be detected from every direction via novel antenna design with spherical readability.
FRAC Tags fit snugly around pipelines or tubular objects. The metal-mount tag employs a rugged chip on-board electronics design in a vulcanized rubber package. Highly impact resistant, this tag’s attachment mechanism is a 5/16-in. braided stainless steel nylon-coated cable with pre-crimped ends that slide together and lock tightly when pressed closed.
Sling/Hang Tags are the same as FRAC but their braided attachment cable is a loop appropriate for fastening through chain links or other small openings. These tags also have an anodized aluminum plate that can display a 2D barcode, serial number, logo, or other identification redundancy information.
All RFID tags are designed to be highly resistant to impact, pressure, and water. They are readable at long range, suiting them for undersea operations. Each tag is laser-etched for a layer of redundancy that makes information easy to read.
Full WoW, FRAC, and Sling/Hang tags information is yours free for the asking.
