Attaching RFID tags to returnable transport items provides visibility of the RTIs and the products they carry throughout the supply chain. RFID can assist with:
- Last seen location of the RTIs
- Better inventory management
- Life cycle management of the RTIs
- Reduced labor costs for tracking inventory
- Increased throughput and productivity
- Reduced loss of RTIs
Within their RTI (Pallet Tagging) Guidelines the GS1 association, an international not-for-profit dedicated to the design and implementation of global standards and solutions to improve the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains, recommends that a minimum of two pieces of RFID tags should be placed on an RTI to assure a minimum process security.
The Xtreme Tag Duo is UHF, rugged RFID tag with IP68 protection and provides resistance to severe impacts, high pressure, outdoor use and a wide range of chemicals which are typical of industrial environments.
|For applications requiring a pair of tags the Xtreme Tag Duo consists of a pair of identical rugged RFID tags that are pre-encoded with the same ID number. The tags are coupled together to ensure that the two identical tags are attached to the same asset. Many companies attach multiple tags to a container or asset to provide read redundancy and increase overall system effectiveness. For such applications, it is critical that the tags match and that they be delivered in a format to make attachment error free, efficient, and easy.|
