Smartrac and Tego to Jointly Provide Highly Reliable UHF RF Solution for Challenging Industrial Environments

Press Releases | By SMARTRAC TECHNOLOGY | 09 March 2016

Smartrac announces its cooperation with Tego Inc., developer and manufacturer of industrial grade RF enabled smart asset solutions. With the collaboration, Tego’s portfolio of UHF chips and software will now further enhance Smartrac’s range of solutions for the industrial sector. In addition, Smartrac will provide a selection of inlays and tags based on Tego’s rugged, high-memory UHF TegoChipTM to its global network of customers and partners.

As part of the cooperation Smartrac announces immediate availability of the Smartrac Dipole inlay based on TegoChip that is highly resistant to extreme temperatures, survives gamma radiation and electron beam sterilization, and can be tightly embedded into materials used for finished goods.

By leveraging TegoChip technology, Dipole inlays will enable digital data to survive on physical assets at the beginning of the product manufacturing process allowing additional data storage throughout the product’s lifecycle even if spanning many decades. Thus Smartrac inlays based on TegoChip also lay the foundation for a wide array of solutions that will be developed using Smartrac’s Internet of Things platform Smart Cosmos.

“Smartrac and Tego together have strong capabilities to develop solutions that meet the requirements of very demanding industrial applications” said Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego, Inc. “Tego is an innovator in rugged, high-memory RF chips, software and applications, and is happy to work with Smartrac that brings global scale, high-quality and high-quantity manufacturing capabilities and expertise to the table.”

“We are happy to work with Tego as their TegoChip technology and application software can be used for solutions to better monitor and manage parts, tools and machines, automate processes, make intelligent decisions at the point of use, and provide knowledge of history, condition and status. By combining our specific fields of expertise and experience, Tego and Smartrac will jointly provide innovative solutions previously not possible or imaginable before,” said Thomas Wythe, Vice President Sales EMEA, Intelligent Things Business Division at Smartrac Technology Group.
