Tiny RFID Tags

- Two new miniaturized high-frequency transponders have been added to the Glass Tag family of radio frequency identification tags from HID Global of Austin, Texas. Each Glass Tag Vigo HF bio-glass cylinder measures approximately 0.1 inch in diameter and 0.5 inch long, and provides a 1,664-bit user memory. The glass enclosure ensures reliable transponder performance, despite potentially harsh conditions in finished tag production and field use. Each unit is manufactured via direct bonding technology, allowing the secure attachment of antennas to chips in thinner and smaller devices. The units can be password protected and offer a privacy mode option.


- The Fusion4 MSC-l is a multistream controller for loading products from refineries and chemical plants into transportation vehicles. Made by Honeywell Enraf of Delft, The Netherlands, the intuitive device interface enables all functions to be controlled in the field via a large display and integrated keyboard that act as a complete hazardous area operating station. Based on mobile apps, on­screen icons make the device intuitive, so training times are shorter and human er­rors are decreased.
