Omni-ID and Holland 1916 unveil two passive UHF RFID tags designed for industrial workplaces. The tags hope to replace manually tracking industrial machinery and lifting equipment used in oil and gas drilling, construction, and nuclear powerplants.

The 360 tag is encased in an industrial steel frame with a tether attachment designed to meet the needs of oil and gas users and other heavy industry applications. It is designed for lifting equipment, such as cranes, slings, and shackles, and other assets that may be stacked high or in places difficult to reach. The Forte tag has a weldable steel frame and strong dual-band response, and is designed specifically for tracking of heavy industrial assets subject to movement, impact and harsh environmental conditions.

These tags can help companies boost profitability by reducing the complexity and cost of inventory management through safe, accurate, and instantaneous reporting of the location and condition of assets. They can also improve compliance with federal government safety laws by making identifications easy to read at safe distances. Both tags comply with the EPC Gen 2 standard for passive RFID tags set by EPC Global, the worldwide standards organization.
