Transponders are applied securely and discreetly to textiles, enabling RFID tracking of high-volume, commercially laundered bed linens, towels and garments.
In contrast to garments like uniforms, linen like bed sheets or towels are washed more frequently and have to endure a tougher cleaning and drying process. Historically, this made using RFID to optimize inventory and accounting processes difficult or impossible to implement for linen. HID Global’s LinTag robust design combats the industrial wash cycles for linens, withstanding the rigors of repeated washings, cleaning chemicals, sterilizing heat, and pressure. The patented design securely positions the inner chip relative to the antenna, which guarantees consistent performance over the life of the tag.
