Tag encoding

Depending on your application needs, Confidex can pre-encode the EPC memory area of your tags with any customer specific data: EPC code, running number or other types of codes. Additionally, Confidex can also lock the data in the EPC memory if needed.

Standard tag encoding offering:

  • Customer specific encoding of EPC and user memory
  • Locking options
  • Hard tags delivered with unique EPC by default

Tag visual marking

Visual markings on a tag can include data labels, color printing and laser engraving. By adding a data label – representing for example your logo, printed numbers, barcodes or 2D data matrices – the tag can be easily matched with your existing  identification infrastructure.

Barcode label data can be easily matched with tag EPC codes. This might, for example, involve putting part of the RFID data into a 2D data matrix or Code 128 barcode format.

Visual markings include:

  • Laser engraving
  • Customer specific color printing
  • Black and white printing with variable data

Tag fixing methods

Confidex has designed tag fixing brackets, which enable easy attachment. Tag fixing tools include, for example, a welding bracket that has an area for spot welding. Alternatively, a magnetic bracket can be used in case the tag needs to be re-located during use.

One notable issue is the effect of the fixing method on the RF performance of the tag as the antenna can be disturbed by nearby material. However, the fixing methods and accessories recommend and provided by Confidex will not compromise the performance of the tags.

Standard fixing tool offering:

  • Background adhesive
  • Welding bracket
  • Magnetic holder
  • Installation tools
