RFID in Harsh Environments

Companies in the oil and gas, chemical, mining, construction and manufacturing industries face special challenges as they seek to use RFID technologies to increase operational safety and efficiency, as well as improve financial results. Tags used for many applications in these sectors must survive high temperatures, extreme cold, physical abuse or exposure to chemicals. Those attending this seminar learned about durable tags available on the market, how to evaluate tags for particular applications and how companies in these sectors are successfully using RFID in harsh environments for asset tracking, personnel safety and equipment maintenance, as well as for speeding up production and shipping processes.
