Cable ID Markers / Rope Holder
The RFID tag is a thin, small footprint UHF tag developed principally for tracking insulated electrical cables.
It has been designed to fit into a plastic cable marker for easy installation and optimum protection in instances
where cables are moved around frequently. Alternatively, this cable tag can be applied directly to cables of ½”
diameter or greater with vinyl heat shrink or clear electrical tape – a simpler and less costly
The cable can also be used for other assets in which there is embedded metal, such as laptops or other IT equipment. The use cases should be evaluated individually to determine appropriate tag placement to achieve highest performance.
So why use RFID tags? The tag can carry information as simple as a pet owners name and address or the cleaning instruction on a sweater to as complex as instructions on how to assemble a car. One of the key differences between RFID and bar code technology is RFID eliminates the need for line-of-sight reading that bar coding depends on. Also, RFID scanning can be done at greater distances than bar code scanning.
