RFID complements traditional barcode technologies, performing asset management roles in places and under conditions that barcodes can’t. Omni-ID’s trusted tag technology has been a critical link in asset management solutions and automated workflows for everything from beer kegs to horticultural containers transporting plants across 40 countries and hygiene regimes in hospitals.
From industrial RFID Tags to intelligent IoT devices – our products are designed to perform.
Whether the industry is manufacturing & logistics, construction, oil & gas, utilities, IT & office management, or government & defense, there’s a passive, active, custom, embedded or sensor tag that’s fit for purpose — and Omni-ID can supply it.
If not, our passionate, dedicated teams of technical experts and scientists can create something innovative and game-changing just for you or your customer in our wholly owned manufacturing facility. Quality assurance is key — we don’t use sub-contractors or distributors, and every product we make has been rigorously tested to the highest possible standards.

When online grocery leader Ocado sought to maximize efficiencies across assets, incorporating an already highly automated smart platform tracking thousands of robots traversing a conveyor at speed to fill consumer orders, it turned to Omni-ID. In partnership with integrator CoreRFID, they created a custom-built integrated RFID tag that would meet Ocado’s stringent reqiurements for cost, ease of deployment and reliability in both ambient and chilled warehouse environments. CoreRFID, Omni-ID and Ocado worked together trialing products and assessing the performance of different tags to achieve the required performance at the right price, including assessing radio frequency characteristics as well as physical aspects of installation. Advanced RFID technology from Omni-ID can facilitate multiple aspects of organisational asset flows, including warehouse management, inventory management, freight transportation, manufacturing, and retailing. With the appropriate RFID solution, almost any supply chain can achieve high performance tracking and tracing of all kinds of assets, including personnel.
Tags can be attached as required to an asset by utilizing a standard or a bespoke design. This affixing can be essentially permanent, by way of a weld or adhesive — or temporary, for example, by harnessing magnetization or specially designed removal tools. For example, we custom-designed a range of extra-durable hang tags that attach to yet hang away from metal assets – achieving a read range of up to 12 meters at an affordable price point.
Alternatively, tags can be embedded on or in metal or plastic, a long-term strategy which can make tampering almost impossible. We’ve embedded custom-designed RFID tags in everything from golf balls to Motorola radio knobs, tools and healthcare devices such as eyeglasses.
Concealed within a high-value device or asset, embedded RFID tags not only can help automate tasks such as inventory management and work in process tracking but are key building blocks for reverse logistics or even a future-forward IoT strategy for you or your customer’s assets.Read more
RFID technology plays an important role in business-critical applications — everything from supply chain management and asset management to fleet tracking, work-in-process monitoring, and access control.
Passive RFID tags or transponders incorporate integrated circuits and an antenna enabling the device to wirelessly signal their location and identity to a reader, either nearby or up to approximately 35 or 40 meters away, depending on the environment. Well known examples include pallet tracking between retail facilities and a distribution warehouse.
Active RFID devices have their own batteries, and can work at distances of 20 meters or, with LPWAN technologies, up to 15 km away from the reader. Additionally, active RFID tags can transmit more information about their status within long, complex modern supply chains, going beyond data on location and identity alone. Actual functionality depends on what other technologies, such as temperature sensors, motion sensors or accelerometers. This can provide solutions for many sectors, from manufacturing, logistics, cold-food storage, geology and earth sciences, to medicine and healthcare, or IoT applications.
Networked data communicated to a gateway can then also be sent on to a central cloud or local host, feeding into enterprise platforms such as ERP to directly influence business decisions.Read more
The success of data-capture hardware devices across multiple applications and markets is largely down to the development of robust, reliable RFID tags that can be mounted on a variety of surfaces and that support long-term, business-critical use cases. Innovators including Omni-ID have responded to customer need by developing increasingly durable designs resistant to harsh environments, high temperatures and heavy impacts for specific requirements — all within highly quality assured, repeatable manufacturing processes including stringent testing that meets the highest standards for enterprise deployment.Read more
