HID Global technology turns ubiquitous smartphones and tablets into trusted verification devices for Internet of Things (IoT) applications – with no need for users to download apps. NFC enabled devices can interact with everyday objects creating unique brand experiences, authenticating merchandise, and validating proof-of-presence. HID Trusted Tag® Services can optimize security and convenience in a wide variety of IoT applications.

Returnable Transport Items

HID Global RFID transponders enhance container system inventory tracking, operational efficiency and lifecycle management. LF, HF and UHF RFID tags are available in varieties that deliver optimized performance on wood, plastic or metal containers of virtually any shape or size.

Standard HID RFID tags are designed for virtually any container, including refillable metal cylindrical beverage kegs, chemical drums and gas cylinders; large steel shipping and cargo containers; and wooden or plastic crates and pallets. In the rare event that HID's find-a-tag tool does not identify the ideal tag for an organization's solution, HID Global can create a custom tag to meet requirements for chip type, dimensions, programming and materials.

Waste Management

HID Global RFID tags help municipalities and waste removal service organizations optimize data collection speed and integrity, enabling pay-as-you-throw and recycling incentive programs.

Bin and container manufacturers can choose from a broad spectrum of LF, HF and UHF passive contactless transponders that provide various levels of resistance to water, chemicals, shock, and temperature variation. For field-deployed assets, Bin Tag and Plug Tag transponders install easily into standard nests, including metal bins and DIN 30745 plastic bins. Additional designs provide the flexibility and versatility to tag bins and containers of any size, shape or composition.

Automation & Manufacturing

RFID tags from HID Global streamline industrial manufacturing processes to increase productivity, safety and security. RFID transponders calibrate and track equipment use, repair and maintenance efficiently. This enhances equipment lifecycle management and enables backward traceability to ensure compliance. HID Global works with integrator partners and their customers to push the limits of how contactless technology can be used. A commitment to innovation and customer focus keeps HID at the forefront of device design for application developments.

Laundry
