BANGALORE, INDIA: HID Global re-inforced its leadership in radio-frequency identification (RFID) solutions for waste management with the addition of its new Bin Tag UHF and Bin Tag HDX. The products expand the company’s extensive portfolio of tag offerings that enable city governments, waste removal contractors, and their residential and commercial customers to optimize efficiencies in their waste management and recycling processes. The new bin tags are compatible with waste management standards for UHF (US Frequency) or HDX.
“RFID waste management technology is becoming increasingly important as new eco-friendly approaches to waste operations gain momentum, and interest in developing more effective recycling processes is on the rise, said Marie-Françoise Glotz, vice president of Industry and Logistics with HID Global. “HID Global is committed to providing the most robust RFID solutions in the industry, and the addition of the new bin tags to our portfolio offers communities a complete set of solutions to meet the wide range of growing waste management requirements.”
The company’s UHF and HDX Bin Tags, the latest additions to its line of RFID tags for waste management, are highly water, chemical and shock resistant and fit into the standard DIN 30745 tag nest of most plastic bins. Featuring a passive contactless transponder designed to communicate with a reader via RFID technology, the new tags are also easy to insert and hard to remove. They can be pre-installed or used for retrofitting existing bins.
