SMARTRAC RATCH TAGAvailable for both HF and UHF frequency bands, Ratch tags are suitable for the tagging and asset control of critical equipment in applications such as lifting, automotive wiring and supply chain, claims Smartrac.

The company says it has securely concealed the RFID component on the inside surface of the tag housing. This ensures that the transponder unit is bonded within the housing and mechanically retained within a Nylon material engineered for durability and strength.

In both HF and UHF bands, a focused and short read range ensures single-tag detection, and effectively eliminates multiple tag reads, says the company. Currently available in black or highly visible yellow, Ratch tag comes in a 195mm x 4.6mm format for the cable tie element, with a width of 8.5mm for the transponder part.
