Confidex Releases New RFID Tire Tag
Confidex Releases New RFID Tire Tag by Confidex
(Tampere, Finland) – February 11, 2020 – Confidex, a leading designer and supplier of short-range wireless identification solutions, announced the release of the new Confidex TireTag. This new global, embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tag is designed for tire traceability throughout the complete tire life-cycle. The tag’s small size and omni-directional antenna design provide greater flexibility for both warehouse and yard management applications.
The new Confidex TireTag will be on display in the Confidex booth at the Tire Technology Expo in Hannover, Germany, February 25-27.
The new TireTag is designed to be embedded inside a tire before the vulcanization process. The tags are based on RAIN RFID/EPCglobal Gen2v2 RFID technology, and have been tested and proven by several truck tire companies.
By integrating RFID tags within the tire at the point of manufacture, fleet operators and other end users can better track tire wear and usage, which can help control ongoing tire costs. RFID can make it easier and more efficient to track and perform regular tire maintenance, as well as identify potential problems or failures before they cause costly downtime.
