IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, today announced the availability of an extended portfolio of radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags for identifying, directing and tracking assets across a broad spectrum of industries and applications. The newest additions include a family of passive, contactless tags that operate on the ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio spectrum, which provides a greater read distance for tracking and monitoring and is rapidly increasing in popularity for industrial and logistics applications.
HID Global now offers the most extensive portfolio of field-proven RFID tags that support a wide range of applications in asset tracking and process automation, including waste management, food and animal, laundry, medical, container identification, returnable transport items and more. With over a decade of innovation and leadership in secure, contactless technology, HID Global has delivered over one billion RFID tags worldwide.
“We’ve been aggressively rounding out our line of RFID tags, with the goal of offering our customers the most extensive portfolio of best-in-class RFID solutions optimized for the specific needs of industrial vertical markets,” said Helmut Dansachmueller, director of product marketing for HID Global’s Identification Solutions (IDS) business. “Our newest tags support the increasingly popular applications that benefit from longer-range UHF technology. As part of our commitment to serving industry and logistics sectors, HID Global will continue to innovate by delivering reliable, high quality RFID tags to the market.”

In its recently published report on the RFID market, research firm IDTechEx forecast that a total of 2.31 billion RFID tags will be sold in 2010, up from 1.98 billion in 2009. Most of this growth is attributed to an increase in passive UHF tags.
