New RAIN RFID Tag for Consumer Food & Beverage Goods

Smartrac introduces Midas FlagTag, a high-performance RAIN RFID tag for consumer goods and industrial components with metallic, plastic, and cardboard surfaces.

Smartrac’s new Midas FlagTag, a RAIN RFID tag for consumer goods and industrial components with metallic, plastic and cardboard surfaces was used as part of a trial of a robotic checkout system at a Lawson store in Japan (see video below): https://youtu.be/Hpp-3Ver7ig

Smartrac’s unique Midas FlagTag design uses an item’s metallic surface as part of the antenna structure. This ensures superior performance in less demanding physical environments, while providing cost advantages compared to foam-based inlays and hard tags typically designed for use on surfaces in tougher industrial environments.
