HID Global Announces LinTRAK® XS, Its Smallest, High-Performance RFID UHF Tag for Textile Identification and Tracking Applications

AUSTIN, Texas, November 16, 2021 – HID Global, the worldwide leader in trusted identity and RFID tracking solutions, today announced the release of LinTRAK® XS, its extra small RFID UHF RAIN® transponders designed for discreet insertion into small textile items.

WHO: HID Global is a leader in trusted identity and RFID tracking solutions. The company has extended its LinTRAK ultra-high frequency (UHF) radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags for linen management to include an extra small form factor option, ideal for discreet attachment onto small textile products and personal clothing, such as nursing homes and care facilities’ resident wear as well as dry-cleaning applications.

WHAT: Measuring only 30 x 10 millimeters and consisting of a soft and thin polyester label compliant with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Level 1, LinTRAK XS is specifically designed to be discreetly and seamlessly affixed onto small textile products and personal clothing used in health care and hospitality applications. The smaller dimension allows LinTRAK XS to be easily sewn directly on the product, in a hem, or fixed under a thermo-adhesive patch. LinTRAK XS is designed with the latest generation of integrated circuit (IC)—Impinj’s Monza M730. In addition, it provides exceptional mechanical resistance and read performance in high-density environments where several tagged items are densely packed together.

WHY: When combining LinTRAK XS with HID Global’s RFID hardware infrastructure and cloud linen management software, laundry professionals in nursing homes benefit from a complete linen and garment track-and-trace solution that prevents garment losses—a source of emotional value for elderly persons—optimizes washing cycles, and improves efficiencies in distribution and inventory.

About HID LinTRAK
