Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has introduced an over-moulded (OM) transponder family comprised of rugged RFID tags in its portfolio of ISO 15693-compliant transponders.

The OM tags are designed to withstand extreme environments where temperature, high pressure and harsh chemicals inhibit the performance of line-of-sight automatic identification technologies such as bar codes and other less robust RFID tags. With their durability and 22mm circular dimensions, TI's 13.56MHz OM tags provide increased read performance compared with competitive offerings for applications ranging from industrial laundry and textile rental to process industries such as perishable foods.

TI's OM tags are available in two memory options: a 2Kbit version with the option for higher functionality and security features, and a 256bit version for customers who require less memory. With these options, customers can choose the tag best suited to their particular needs. In addition, the tag packaging is optimized for mechanical robustness so that each tag can be reused hundreds of times in physically demanding environments.
