Because HF RFID Wet Inlays have an adhesive backing, they are basically industrial HF RFID stickers. HF RFID passive tags consist of an integrated circuit which stores and processes information as well as an antenna that receives and transmits the signal. There is no internal power supply in them. It is best to use RFID Wet Inlays for applications requiring a low-cost "peel-and-stick" tag. RFID Wet Inlays can also be converted into paper or synthetic face labels.
In addition to the Smartrac Dogbone and Alien Squiggle, Toptag offers almost every RFID Wet Inlay on the market. While we are constantly updating and adding RFID products to our site, if there is a particular Wet Inlay you are looking for, but cannot find, please contact us as we may be able to assist.
Due to their lack of adhesive backing, HF RFID Dry Inlays are called "Dry". An RFID microchip (IC) and antenna are attached to a material or substrate called a web. There is no adhesive on these inlays, so they look like they have been laminated.
If you are unable to locate a particular HF Dry Inlay product on our website, please contact us, as we may be able to assist. Whenever you need assistance with RFID hardware, our highly-experienced sales team is available to assist you.
High frequency (HF) dry/wet inlay technology is a method of printing radio frequency (RF) tags onto paper. This technology uses an embedded antenna printed directly onto the surface of the paper and an integrated data carrier to provide an RF tag-like functionality. This allows for applications like library loans, luggage tracking, product authentication, attendance records and more. To enable this technology, an HF printer is used which also contains an integrated RFID reader. The HF dry/wet inlay technology is compatible with a wide range of RFID readers and antennas, enabling its use in a variety of applications.
There are various types of HF anti-metal tags and dry/wet inlays available, depending on the application. You can choose between different alloys, chips, and antenna designs, as well as various etch depths or sizes. Additionally, you may want to consider both the form factor of the device and its tolerance to water, sunlight, extreme temperatures, etc.
