Our team of RFID experts evaluate commercially-available durable passive UHF RFID tags from Confidex, Intermec, and Omni-ID. These RFID tags are designed to identify and track assets that contain metal. Four sets of real-world use case tests were performed to determine how well each RFID tag performs (click a link below to read the test details):

Overall Benchmark Test Analysis
Important Considerations When Selecting RFID Tags
The use-cases include assets such as military ammunition, beer kegs, and wooden / metal containers. Both single and double layer mixed pallet configurations are tested.
The RFID equipment used includes Alien ALR9800, Impinj Speedway® Revolution, Intermec CN3e Handheld Reader with IP30 add-on passive UHF RFID handle, Convergence Systems Limited CS101 handheld reader with CS501 module for GSM/GPRS cellular communication and global positioning technology (GPS).
This benchmark report gives you the knowledge you need for a successful implementation and should instill greater confidence when making purchasing decisions.
