HID - SlimFlex

HID Global SlimFlex RFID tags are among the most advanced general purpose UHF tags available. The unique thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) housings tolerate repeated bending or torsion, while maintaining excellent performance characteristics. The durable housing safeguards embedded electronics, even under harsh conditions.

SlimFlex passive contactless transponders improve data collection speed and accuracy for logistics applications. The tags flexible housings conform to surface contours, and can be securely attached with industrial adhesives or screwed into place via pre-drilled holes.

UHF technology enables anti-collision functionality, fast data-rate communication and password data protection for precise, reliable reading and updating of each tags 512-bit user memory. SlimFlex tags are compliant with EPC global certified UHF Class 1 Gen 2 readers and modules and have broadband capability for worldwide operations.

SlimFlex tags enable fast and accurate data read and write capabilities when mounted to any wood or plastic asset, such as containers, pallets, helmets, apparel, tools or even trees.

The tags are available in two configurations. The standard version enables read ranges up to 6 m and attaches snugly to rounded or irregular surfaces. The SlimFlex Square configuration delivers read ranges of up to 8 m in dry conditions when mounted to any non-metal surface and in wet conditions when mounted vertically to a flat surface or extended from a corner.

Both SlimFlex RFID tags are waterproof, provide high resistance to aggressive liquids, and deliver reliable performance and reading stability across fluctuating temperatures.
