UHF EPC Compliant RFID Passive Sheep Ear Tag

Toronto, Canada - GAO RFID Inc. ( now offers passive RFID animal tags operating in the UHF spectrum (GAO116033). Typically, in the past, animal tagging has primarily been done using low frequency transponders; however, these innovative EPC Gen 2 Class 1 tags address some of the shortcomings of using LF. Specifically, UHF tags offer a much higher read range as well as the ability to handle collisions between the signals coming from multiple tags such as which would occur when livestock are funneled through a gate.

This ear tag's shape is designed particularly for use with sheep, but it is suitable for the tracking of any medium-sized livestock. With it, the tagged animal can be monitored and information regarding its feeding, location, vaccination, health history, etc. can be maintained.

The tag also offers a unique custom command set, which ensures easy, secure communication between the transponder and RFID readers. And, importantly, this RFID tag has an IP67 rating which guarantees its suitability for use in harsh environments making it an ideal choice for tracking sheep.
