HID announced the release of LinTRAK XS, its extra small RFID UHF RAIN transponders designed for discreet insertion into small textile items.
With this release, HID extends its LinTRAK ultra-high frequency (UHF) radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags for linen management to include an extra small form factor option. The mini device is ideal for discreet attachment onto small textile products and personal clothing, such as nursing homes and care facilities’ resident wear as well as dry-cleaning applications.
LinTRAK XS measures only 30 x 10 millimetres and consists of a soft and thin polyester label compliant with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Level 1.
LinTRAK XS is designed with the latest generation of integrated circuits (IC)—Impinj’s Monza M730. In addition, it provides exceptional mechanical resistance and read performance in high-density environments where several tagged items are densely packed together.
By combining LinTRAK XS with HID Global’s RFID hardware infrastructure and cloud linen management software, laundry professionals in nursing homes benefit from a complete linen and garment track-and-trace solution that prevents garment losses. It also optimizes washing cycles and improves efficiencies in distribution and inventory.
The HID LinTRAK portfolio includes five RFID UHF tags designed to identify, track and manage laundry and textile assets efficiently through their lifecycle in hospitality, healthcare and other commercial industries. Special features include heat-sealing capability, usability in magnetic resonance imaging systems and reel form factor to enable source-tagging during the linen manufacturing process.
