RFID CABLE TIES FACILITATE TRACKING

Radio frequency identification and digital information technology, combined with the versatility of single-piece fixing ties, facilitates reliable identification and tracking of items across many industries, helping users save time with itemised scanning, while eliminating the manual data recording errors that are common along paper trails. With the aid of appropriate IT systems and reader applications, they can add a layer of data which enables the intelligent automation of business processes as part of Industry 4.0.

HellermannTyton has developed a range of cable ties with integrated RFID tags. Its T50RFID cable ties are available with low frequency or high frequency transponders, which are encapsulated in glass and embedded in the body of the nylon tie with a UV-cured adhesive. This makes the tags extremely resilient to adverse environmental conditions, corrosion, vibration, shock and wilful manipulation.

In contrast to barcode labels, which can easily be rendered illegible under adverse conditions, the information on the tags can be read regardless of orientation and through most materials, even without a direct line of sight.

HellermannTyton’s complete RFID product range also includes robust stainless steel cable ties equipped with HF and ultra-high frequency transponders, plus HF tags embedded in plastic accessories that can be fastened with alternative fixing methods. Desktop and handheld RFID readers complement the portfolio.

HF and UHF RFID tags can carry customisable information beyond the unique serial number. They are also NFC compatible and can be read using tablets and smartphones.
