The UHF Patch is an RFID Tag designed for use on soft metals. These tags are very simple in design, with the main RFID component being a metal bar. This bar is mounted on the surface of the metal, which is then covered by an insulating layer such as plastic. There is a serial data reader installed inside the tag and this allows users to read the data from the tag, either by plugging it into a computer or a standard USB port. This can be used in conjunction with the Soft Metal Tag and in some cases the tag can be operated directly from a handheld unit or similar device.
The tag can be used to identify a specific product, person or vehicle within the fleet of a business or fleet of vehicles within a fleet of vehicles. The tags can be used for monitoring the status of the vehicles. For example, if a vehicle is not working properly or is involved in an accident it will be able to be identified from the UHF Patch UHF Tag UHF Tire Tag by the data reader. The tags can also be used to track the location of vehicles within the fleet. For example, if one vehicle has failed to make a delivery due to bad weather the UHF Patch RFID Tire Tag is able to pinpoint this vehicle using the data reader. If another vehicle is involved in an accident, the tag can be read by the data reader and can be used to find out where the driver was at the time of the accident and what he was doing before the accident occurred. In these cases the tag can be used to provide evidence to insurance companies in regard to the care taken by the driver prior to the accident.
There are many benefits to using this type of tag. Firstly, since the tag uses a radio-frequency (RF) communication it is very easy to read. There is no need to have a special reader and because it is attached to the surface of the metal it is completely immune to moisture, heat or cold. This means that it can be read from a distance and will remain unaffected by the elements. The tag is also very easy to install onto the metal surface as there is no need for any tools and the installation process is fairly straightforward.
