William Frick & Companys new RFID label enables accurate and efficient asset tracking of high-voltage insulators as electric utilities seek to modernize the transmission grid.

Libertyville, IL (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

William Frick & Company, a leading supplier of specialty identification products including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and labels, expands its SmartMark product line with the addition of the new WF-SM-SI01 insulator label. As electric utilities, including transmission and distribution companies, modernize power grids, many are discovering the advantages of outfitting insulators and other equipment with RFID tags and labels for future maintenance and inventory tracking purposes. Management, deployment, and replacement of insulators using RFID brings accuracy and efficiency to the process of power delivery.

Specifically designed for industrial insulators, the SmartMark WF-SM-SI01 features a passive UHF RFID antenna with a long read range of up to 35 feet. Utilities employ the WF-SM-SI01 using a standard RFID readerno special equipment or battery-powered tags required. Insulators and other assets can be tracked as they enter and exit storage facilities/yards. Once deployed out in the field, the labels long read range enables tracking of the overhead and long-distance assets.

Additionally, the WF-SM-SI01 offers excellent adhesive properties, a great solution for silicone and polymer (composite/ceramic) electric insulators known to be difficult to attach a label to. The WF-SM-SI01 features a special peel-and-stick adhesive that bonds securely to insulator surfaces such as glass, porcelain, or silicone.
