Metalcraft Introduces Destructible Option for RFID Windshield Tag
Mason City, Iowa-based Metalcraft announced the availability of a destructible version of its RFID Windshield Tag, designed to deliver long read range at a lower cost for customers automating vehicle tracking and access control. The Destructible RFID Windshield Tag is engineered to be durable, but attempts to remove an applied tag render it unusable. The destructible version is available at the same price as Metalcraft's standard RFID Windshield Tag.
Metalcraft's standard RFID Windshield Tag is a 4x1” adhesive label that can be placed on the interior or exterior of automobile glass. The label provides a read range over 18 feet using a passive KSW Microtec Windshield RFID inlay and does not require a foam standoff like other windshield tag designs. The destructible version adds slits along the perimeter of the label that destroy the inlay if someone tries to remove it from a windshield.
Metalcraft's construction encapsulates the inlay between thin layers of polypropylene adding a barcode and human readable information to one side and a windshield-compatible adhesive to the other. This encapsulation process protects the inlay and reduces the effects of electrostatic discharge while the windshield-compatible adhesive protects against the harmful UV rays.
