Q&A of Logistics & Inventory Labels for Disposable Packaging

Q: What is LoS?
A: LoS stands for Line of Sight which is ability to see the label without visual obstruction.  RFID labels typically do not require LoS unlike printed barcodes which require optical scanning.

Q: Do printers have trouble encoding dual dipole labels?
A: Dual dipole labels use a single integrated circuit (IC) so they encode exactly the same as single dipole labels.  Leading RFID  printers will auto-select the best RFID antenna within the  printer and it doesn’t matter which of the two label antenna is corresponding to the printer choice.  Confidex dual dipole labels work very well with all leading RFID printers with no challenges to encoding.

Q: Are RTLS antennas best paired with dual or single dipole labels?
A: RTLS systems work best with uniform reads of RFID labels.  Dual dipole labels (and products like Confidex Crosswave Neo which have dual-dipole emulation) provide consistent read distances despite the label orientation which greatly improves accuracy of passive RTLS systems.

Q: Will Confidex disposable packing labels also perform on plastics?
A: Confidex RFID disposable packing labels such as Confidex Crosswave and Confidex Crosswave family labels will work well on plastic, cardboard, wood, glass, and many other non-metal surfaces.  It is very common to adhere these labels onto plastic-wrapped pallets and boxes.

Q: Do Confidex packaging labels withstand washing?
A: Confidex RFID disposable packing labels such as Confidex Crosswave and Confidex Crosswave family labels are not designed to survive harsh industrial wash cycles.  While limited exposure to water will not harm these labels, there is risk to the printed face material when exposed to wash cycles.  For applications which require high pressure, high temperature, or industrial washing it is recommended to use Confidex Carrier family of washable labels.
